GAME REPORT

18.06.2014
Relieved Italy Escape Estonian Test
7. Giorgia Sottana (Italy)
Giorgia Sottana was the top scorer for Italy with 18 points

Staring down the barrel of an unthinkable third consecutive defeat in Group C of the EuroBasket Women 2015 2nd Qualification Round, a relieved Italy escaped with a hard fought 52-45 success in Estonia.

In a defensively dominated contest when neither team were able to find their groove offensively, Italy squeezed out a precious victory to stop the rot after previous losses to Portugal and Latvia.

The visitors had enjoyed a perfect start after a score by Maria Laterza put them 10-2 ahead, although their early impetus was quickly blunted by Estonia's response which was a dazzling 20-5 run across the first and second quarter break.

After Maaja Bratka opened the second half with an ‘and-1' play, Estonia remained in the ascendancy at 27-20 and needing a response from his team, Roberto Ricchini got one.

Giorgia Sottana was at the heart of a 13-2 burst as Italy ripped the initiative back and it was to lay the platform for a stomach-churning finale with both teams trying to get to grips with the tension.

Italy continued their fine work and moved 45-41 clear after a score by Raffaella Masciadri, but were then left rattled as Estonia hit back.

But with less than three minutes remaining in the contest, Sottana scored five successive points to put enough daylight between the teams to get Italy a priceless win, with Lavinia Santucci making doubly sure by sinking a bucket with 20 seconds remaining.

Much of their success was down to their defence and not least Francesca Dotto. The young guard may have endured a torrid time like many others shooting the ball, but her super six steals proved to be the key number in the game.

Sottana claimed a game-high 18 points and Pirgit Püü had 15 for Estonia.

COACH QUOTES

18.06.2014
Quotes: Estonia vs. Italy

Jaanus Levkoi, Estonia, Head Coach
"We made too many easy turnovers and against a strong team like Italy it will cost you the game. Our biggest problem was the attack, when they started to put more pressure on our players we couldn't score anymore. 45 points is not enough."


Pirgit Püü, Estonia
"In my opinion we ourselves are the only ones to blame for this loss. They out-rebounded us and that was the biggest problem. We didn't box out well enough and they got easy points under the basket. It was a game we could have won but we gave it away ourselves."


Giorgia Sottana, Italy
"We played as a team and even when we were behind we never gave up. We worked hard on defence and in the end it paid off. Our group is strong and it's not sure yet who is going to advance."


Roberto Richhini, Italy, Head Coach
"This was a hard game for us. Both teams understood that whoever wins this one has a chance to advance. In the first half we didn't play well but in the second half we improved and were able to get the important win. I want to say I respect the Estonian team a lot, they made it hard for us."

COACH QUOTES

18.06.2014
Quotes: Estonia vs. Italy

Jaanus Levkoi, Estonia, Head Coach
"We made too many easy turnovers and against a strong team like Italy it will cost you the game. Our biggest problem was the attack, when they started to put more pressure on our players we couldn't score anymore. 45 points is not enough."


Pirgit Püü, Estonia
"In my opinion we ourselves are the only ones to blame for this loss. They out-rebounded us and that was the biggest problem. We didn't box out well enough and they got easy points under the basket. It was a game we could have won but we gave it away ourselves."


Giorgia Sottana, Italy
"We played as a team and even when we were behind we never gave up. We worked hard on defence and in the end it paid off. Our group is strong and it's not sure yet who is going to advance."


Roberto Richhini, Italy, Head Coach
"This was a hard game for us. Both teams understood that whoever wins this one has a chance to advance. In the first half we didn't play well but in the second half we improved and were able to get the important win. I want to say I respect the Estonian team a lot, they made it hard for us."
