Itoudis: “It was important that we remained calm”

Dimitris Itoudis, after Greece’s victory over the Czech Republic, emphasized that it was very important that the internationals were quite calm even when they were not getting shots, but also that they had to change three defenses to find the one that would be most efficient .


“I don’t know if the team was stressed. I would not say that. We had a very good team against us, with a lot of shooters. We changed three kinds of defenses, the last one being much more substantial. We have to congratulate the team for the win and for keeping their composure when things didn’t go their way and the shots weren’t going in.

It was important that Larry from the bench gave us another dimension. Everyone believed that the game could be turned around and that requires calmness and concentration. More so today, which was a final, that’s the process. In the group it is different, here you either succeed or you leave. We are maturing as a team, we were on the ropes enough and we reacted. The defenses we put out gave us a boost and Giannis hit two big shots. Satoranski and Vesely were very good, but we looked to not lose to the other players who are good shooters. We all have experience of such games.

We are not playing alone, you have seen the results so far. All games ended 94-86 and ours almost did too. Everything can be done. Today we went to the reception because our keys had expired. We had to renew them because we were told you might get banned. Now we’re going to renew them.”
