EuroBasket 2022. Mateusz Ponitka: we were quite close and there was a chance

BASKETBALL. Bronze medal not for the Polish national team. On Sunday, Biało-Czerwoni lost in the match for the third place of EuroBasket with Germany 69:82 in Berlin. It does not change the fact that we have witnessed one of the best tournaments in the history of Polish basketball. – I also congratulate my players – they are heroes for me. They are stars. What they showed throughout the tournament was amazing, hats off. Nobody thought we would be in such a place. We had our chances in this match. I hope it will be a great experience for our players, especially the younger ones, to become better basketball players – coach Igor Milicic said after the match.

Mateusz Ponitka (captain of the Polish national team): “There is sadness after this match, because I think we were quite close and there was a chance to win the medal. We were sensitized that Voigtman could fire in the third or fourth quarter when the game was at stake. Unfortunately, we saw what happened. He hit important throws, Schroeder added his and the Germans left. But in general, in two or three days, when the emotions subside, I think we’ll understand that it was a great tournament for us. I am proud of my colleagues and all of the staff. What can I say. We are the fourth team in Europe “.

Jakub Garbacz (Poland, 12 points, 4/4 for three): “Unfortunately. We had our chances in this match, we didn’t make it. It’s a pity, they hit key moments, we didn’t. In the half we missed any of the ten shots for three We came back after the break We equalized at 59:59 The game seven minutes left started again Well they were better in the last parts We all wanted to make up for the losses, we wanted to win it “The coach tried various setups. We didn’t do a lot in defense, and neither did we. It took an extra impulse for these last minutes. We didn’t make it.”
