Right after the break, Shawer sent the home team to the basket with a foul to take a 20-point lead and ensured Olomouc’s peace until the next moments of the match. Although the players of Vienna were angry for a while and in the 25th minute after Vujošević’s basket they came close to a difference of fourteen points, but at the end of the quarter the Hanáci took care of it. They entered the last stage with a score of 78:57 and were close to winning.
Vienna did not give up even in extremely unfavorable conditions and reduced its deficit to fifteen points in the thirty-fifth minute. However, the home team kept their composure and achieved a valuable team performance, which was also documented by the statistics – seven players scored at least ten points.
“We showed a very good team performance. Good defense was the foundation. We were able to get a lot of possessions, we were able to win on the rebound. From this also came the play in the attacking half, where players were able to pass the ball to each other and the combinations ended with easy baskets. The opponent had great quality, which is why we are happy with the win,” assessed Olomouc’s coach Andy Hipsher.
