GAME REPORT


Rampant Ros Warm Up For Final

Turning Point: There wasn't one since Ros raced off the starting line, went into overdrive and didn't take their foot off the accelerator.

Game Heroes: Isabelle Yacoubou and Eshaya Murphy both impressed, combining for 38 points and both shooting over 50% for the game.

Stats Don't Lie: Ros made just 1 of 12 from the arc which would ordinarily be a potential problem, however making a superb 58 points inside with a near 60% percentage meant it really didn't matter.

Red-hot Ros Casares made potential Final opponents Rivas Ecopolis and Fenerbahce sit up and take notice after prepared for Sunday's game with a 90-61 rout of Wisla Can-Pack.

Rather than taking their foot off the gas and relaxing, the Ros players were visibly tuned into this game, perhaps eager to impress and nail down court time for the big game.

It was the intensity and tenacity of their defence which impressed more than anything else. Time and time again, it proved to be the catalyst for points in transition as they blew Wisla away with a quite devastating first half performance.

The Spanish club racked up a mind blowing 51 points during a first half when they were absolutely rampant and it left their Polish opponents trailing in their wake and stranded on 24 points.

The second half saw Ros give valuable court time to young Miriam Foraste and it was mission accomplished as they both cruised to victory and importantly, seemed to avoid any injury problems.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes Ros Casares vs. Wisla Can-Pack

Ros Casares head coach Roberto Iniguez

"Fist congratulations to Jose (Hernandez). I think they played two very good games. They only lost in the last moments. I know that they are tired today because it is very difficult for them to play hard three games in a row with their rotation. On the other hand all of our player delivered today. It is very important for my team to be confident for the final."

Ros Casares shooting guard Eshaya Murphy
"I am really excited and grateful to be here. We worked so hard and it is my first time in the EuroLeague finals. It is a great experience playing against Ekaterinburg, Sparta&k and Wisla. There are so many great players here. So this opportunity is an honor for me and I am happy with my team. Yesterday we played a diffucult game against Sparta&k. We fought our way back from 10 points down. And i just think we carried that momentum against Wisla today and never looked back. Now we will probably get some rest and get ready for the final."

Wisla Can-Pack head coach Jose Hernandez
"Congratulations to Ros Casares. It was hard for us. We played two good games against the Russian teams. But today we couldn't play our game and lost. We faced some of the biggest teams in Europe and my player tried to do their best. Now we want win our last game and return home with a victory."

Wisla point guard Erin Phillips
"We played against a very talented and strong team today. After two hard games, it was not easy for us and we lost to Ros Casares. Now we have another match on Sunday. We want to win it and finish the tournament well. "
