Although there were only 50 ½ hours and a grueling journey (with a flight delay) between the league match against Graz and the Europe Cup appearance in Antwerp, Austria’s basketball runners-up OCS Swans Gmunden managed to mobilize all their strength again. The deserved reward was the first victory in the fourth match of the group phase, the team from the Salzkammergut celebrated a 90:87 (42:55) victory.

“It’s great to win international games,” said Gmunden’s coach Anton Mirolybov, who was delighted with the comeback that was well worth seeing. “We forced the opponent to lose 20 turnovers and we were better on the offensive rebound, that was the key.”

Captain Daniel Friedrich was also enthusiastic about the increase in performance after changing sides. “We fought back with all our might and ended up hitting the important shots.” The Swans functioned as a collective, five players (Green/19, King/19, Friedrich/15, Blazan/14, Güttl/11) scored in double digits.

“It hurts very much”

The round of 16 of the Cup at UBSC Graz (72:83) is hard on the stomach for the Raiffeisen Flyers Wels. “We weren’t ready in many moments, that hurts a lot,” admitted Christian von Fintel, who scored 15 points. “We let Graz come back too easily,” said coach Sebastian Waser.
