Joan Peñarroya, Hereda San Pablo Burgos coach, acknowledged that Tenerife had “been the best and fair winner” and pointed out that they had “lacked intensity, but not because of the fatigue of the Intercontinental Cup.” “We started well, with clear ideas, but Tenerife’s great success in the shot of three and that we were not well in some actions that we knew, such as Salin’s triples, surpassed us. They also made 10 of 13 triples in the first part, “said Peñarroya.
“We have lacked a lot of things. It is true that in the second half they have not continued with the success of the first, but they have killed us on the rebound. Especially in offense we have given them a lot of advantage. Besides we without having a day of great success. Congratulations to Tenerife. With 53-51 I think we had a few free kicks or a shot to get ahead … and we collapsed. Well, they have been better. We have lacked those details that in basketball are very important and it’s time to improve, “he added.
Asked about the possible fatigue of the team after the achievement of the Intercontinental Cup in Buenos Aires last Sunday, the technician was clear. “We have lacked intensity because we have not been at the physical level of the rival. On the rebound we have not been well, but this has not been due to fatigue,” he stressed. “I am not happy with the game, yes with the effort and that the team has shown its face. They have been better than us,” concluded Joan Peñarroya.
