GAME REPORT

25.06.2014
Dotto Drives Italy To Qualification
11. Raffaella Masciadri (Italy)
Raffaella Masciadri was crucial in Italy's game against Latvia

Italy held their nerve and hung on to the second spot in Group C in the EuroBasket Women 2015 2nd Qualification Round with a 85-68 victory against Latvia in Ragusa on Wednesday.

Italy started slowly but some strong play from Francesca Dotto prevented Latvia from pulling away, although they held a 21-18 advantage after 10 minutes.

The teams traded baskets once more in the second quarter. But Latvia still led as they managed to get to the basket and create high percentage shots.

The start of the final period provided the turning point however as when Raffaella Masciadri connected from long rage after a fastbreak, it sparked a 14-0 Italy run, which swung the game in their favour.

This gave Italy a 70-60 lead with five minutes to play and with Masciadri, who finished with 17 points and Dotto, who had 23, firing on all cylinders, they never looked like giving up their place at next summer's competition.

COACH QUOTES

Quotes Italy vs. Latvia

Roberto Ricchini, Italy Head Coach
"After our defeat in Portugal, we regrouped and grew up. This Qualification to EuroBasket Women 2015 give us great satisfaction, because the road was difficult. The players worked hard, despite some difficulties. We qualified to the European Championships twice in a row; we will play at the EuroBasket without fear, with a mixed group of young and experienced players."

Raffaella Masciadri, Italy
"We are very happy for this qualification to EuroBasket Women and today we won against a very good team. Compared to the qualification round of two years ago, we are more satisfied because this year we had a very young team and with significant absentees. As captain I made great compliments to my team-mates."

Ainars Zvirgzdins, Latvia Head Coach
"Although we were already qualified to EuroBasket Women, today we wanted to win. We played great basketball for most of the match, but we lost the game in the last quarter. We are very happy for this qualification; we are a young team and we played a great second qualifying round. Next year in Romania and Hungary we could add some expert players."

Ieva Krastina, Latvia
"We played well for three quarters, then we suffered and Italian comeback. Today we fought and we tried to win, but for Italy this match was very important for Qualification to EuroBasket Women; in the final part of the game Italy played better than us. Congratulations to Italy."

COACH QUOTES

25.06.2014
Quotes Italy vs. Latvia

Roberto Ricchini, Italy Head Coach
"After our defeat in Portugal, we regrouped and grew up. This Qualification to EuroBasket Women 2015 give us great satisfaction, because the road was difficult. The players worked hard, despite some difficulties. We qualified to the European Championships twice in a row; we will play at the EuroBasket without fear, with a mixed group of young and experienced players."

Raffaella Masciadri, Italy
"We are very happy for this qualification to EuroBasket Women and today we won against a very good team. Compared to the qualification round of two years ago, we are more satisfied because this year we had a very young team and with significant absentees. As captain I made great compliments to my team-mates."

Ainars Zvirgzdins, Latvia Head Coach
"Although we were already qualified to EuroBasket Women, today we wanted to win. We played great basketball for most of the match, but we lost the game in the last quarter. We are very happy for this qualification; we are a young team and we played a great second qualifying round. Next year in Romania and Hungary we could add some expert players."

Ieva Krastina, Latvia
"We played well for three quarters, then we suffered and Italian comeback. Today we fought and we tried to win, but for Italy this match was very important for Qualification to EuroBasket Women; in the final part of the game Italy played better than us. Congratulations to Italy."
