Ros Ready For Decider At La Fonteta

02.03.2008

Ros Casares are confident they can bounce back from a road defeat in the EuroLeague Women for a second consecutive play-off series to reach the Final Four.

The Spanish team lost 65-55 at Gambrinus Brno on Friday to leave the quarter-final series knotted at 1-1.

"I don't get demoralized so quickly," said Ros Casares veteran Elena Tornikidou.

"I have confidence in my team and now we return to play at home.

"We have to win, there's no option and I think qualification is in our hands."

Ros Casares have been in this position before.

They lost their first game of the EuroLeague Women season at US Valenciennes in the eighth-finals but hit back for a decisive win in Valencia to win that tie.

Against Brno, they trailed by 18 points early in the fourth quarter and battled back to within four late in the game but ran out of steam.

"We all believed that it was possible to come from behind but we failed on three consecutive possessions," said Ros Casares coach Manolo Real. "That, against a team of the quality of Brno, ends up leaving you without options."

Ros host Brno on Wednesday at La Fonteta.
