Quotes Rubén Burgos pre semifinals EuroCup Women vs Flammes Carolo Basket


Valencia Basket is just over 24 hours away from playing its first EuroCup Women Final Four. The rival, the French team Flammes Carolo Basket will seek, like the Taronja team, the ticket for the final to be held on Sunday. Rubén Burgos analyzes this confrontation.

The coach assures that “the team is prepared and psyched up to face these semifinals, against a rival who is going to be tough and who was already presumed to be fixed for the Final Four and for the title. A team with experience at this level and that has already played games of this importance. Our players have worked well during the week, they are aware that we must show hunger and show our best version, not to think about opting for the title and to think exclusively about Carolo Flammes ”.

The eighth and quarterfinals also went to a game, so the team already knows this season what it is to play all or nothing. “Previous experiences of playing 40-minute knockouts count, as does the close experience of the Queen's Cup, the Eurocup bubbles, and that our mentality has been match by match and training by training to deserve it. It will be demanding, hard, but with our mentality and our effort we will have options ”, indicates the coach.

Regarding the feelings within the squad, Burgos conveys that "I see the players ambitious, excited and hungry to grow and show that we deserve to be here and why not take one more step."
