I’ve already talked to some of you, commenting on the last game: I think you played great! I’m not sure that many of you are aware of the rival you faced. Carla was telling me that you weren’t doing any of the things that you practiced during the week and I told her that these girls weren’t letting you do anything.
I saw you run like never before, and play each ball to the max, but it was impossible against so many factors: their physical training, age, and basketball knowledge. Last year, we never played a team at this level. Please don’t get down; we must keep training, and unite our strength and courage.
Good luck and keep working on it!
