GAME REPORT

08.06.2013
Duo Shoot Poland Into The Last Four

The Polish team huddles up (Poland)
Poland are the first team through to the semi-finals after winning Group C in undefeated fashion

Magdalena Leciejewska and Agnieszka Szott-Hejmej propelled Poland to a 65-56 success against Finland to secure first place in Group C and grab a semi-final place in the EuroBasket Women 2015 1st Qualification Round.

Following on from their opening day success against Belgium, the Poles made it two from two, thanks mainly to Leciejewska, who finished one rebound short of a double-double after scoring a game-high 16 points.

Szott-Hejmej, her fellow partner in crime in the paint, helped wrap up the victory by contributing a similarly impressive 15 points and seven rebounds.

It had looked like Poland would romp to victory in something of a one-sided spell either side of the interval, which witnessed them establish what looked to be an unassailable 18-point lead.

When Leciejewska made it 49-31 early in the third quarter to seal a 10-point unanswered run, it looked like Poland already had one foot in the last four of the competition.

But, Finland came roaring back at the start of the fourth quarter to get the home crowd believing once again and Poland rattled.

Still trailing 53-41, they managed to score 11 points without reply, as a free throw from Tina Sten brought them to within one point.

With a point still separating the team with less than four minutes remaining, Poland regained their composure and finished strongly to ease their way to the win.

Heta Korpivaara stood out for the losing team with an efficient 13 points.

COACH QUOTES

08.06.2013
Quotes Poland vs. Finland

Poland Head Coach Jacek Winnicki:
"In today's basketball, there is no such thing as a safe lead. Finland came back from 18 points to one point but we were able to pick up our defence in the momentum and had some very important threes by [Agnieszka] Szott-Hejmej. I'm happy that we played very tough defence today because that's the main thing we have to focus on if we want to make it to EuroBasket Women 2015."

Poland player Agnieszka Szott-Hejmej:
"I think we were a little bit too sure about our own lead when we were up by 18 points. I think we reacted too much and weren't patient when playing against their zone defence. This is definitely something we have to work on when we continue our qualification games. It also helped us that Finland missed a lot of open looks when the game was on the line. I'm happy that we showed that we can still compete for the EuroBasket Women 2015 spot and after a couple of days off, we'll continue."

 

Finland Head Coach Anton Mirolybov:
"Hats off to my players - they played 40 minutes and refused to give up. Playing in front of our home audience seemed to affect us a little bit today; we took some careless shots and didn't rebound. Poland played much more intensely today than yesterday against Belgium and they had learned our playbook. We couldn't get our game going until we started mixing zone and man-to-man defences and picked up the tempo that way. We're planning to win tomorrow's game, end this summer's games positively and start looking forward to next summer's qualification games."

Finland player Reetta Piipari:
"There was a bit of excitement for us in the beginning of the game and Poland played extremely hard defence. They had clearly gone through our set plays and knew how to defend our important plays. But still, we did not execute our own team game. The ending might have been different if we could have managed to gain the lead but Poland made a couple of important threes and that was it."

COACH QUOTES

08.06.2013
Quotes Poland vs. Finland

Poland Head Coach Jacek Winnicki:
"In today's basketball, there is no such thing as a safe lead. Finland came back from 18 points to one point but we were able to pick up our defence in the momentum and had some very important threes by [Agnieszka] Szott-Hejmej. I'm happy that we played very tough defence today because that's the main thing we have to focus on if we want to make it to EuroBasket Women 2015."

Poland player Agnieszka Szott-Hejmej:
"I think we were a little bit too sure about our own lead when we were up by 18 points. I think we reacted too much and weren't patient when playing against their zone defence. This is definitely something we have to work on when we continue our qualification games. It also helped us that Finland missed a lot of open looks when the game was on the line. I'm happy that we showed that we can still compete for the EuroBasket Women 2015 spot and after a couple of days off, we'll continue."

 

Finland Head Coach Anton Mirolybov:
"Hats off to my players - they played 40 minutes and refused to give up. Playing in front of our home audience seemed to affect us a little bit today; we took some careless shots and didn't rebound. Poland played much more intensely today than yesterday against Belgium and they had learned our playbook. We couldn't get our game going until we started mixing zone and man-to-man defences and picked up the tempo that way. We're planning to win tomorrow's game, end this summer's games positively and start looking forward to next summer's qualification games."

Finland player Reetta Piipari:
"There was a bit of excitement for us in the beginning of the game and Poland played extremely hard defence. They had clearly gone through our set plays and knew how to defend our important plays. But still, we did not execute our own team game. The ending might have been different if we could have managed to gain the lead but Poland made a couple of important threes and that was it."
