EuroLeague Women Week 14: Social media spotlight and reaction
MUNICH (EuroLeague Women) We catch up with some of those involved in the last week of the Regular Season and take a look at how the action went down on social media.
There were mixed emotions for Hatay who started their first season with a string of losses, but really found their feet and only just missed out on the Quarter-Finals in a three-way tie situation.
Now they will move into the Quarter-Finals of EuroCup Women and that was still cause for celebration for Belarussian winger and 'selfie expert' Katsiaryna Snytsina.
"We did not play well for the first 30 minutes and it was as if this game meant nothing to us, so I was dissatisfied," said head coach, Roberto Iniguez.
"But, in the last quarter, everything changed and it was important for us to play with that kind of heart."
In the same game, Nadezhda star Amanda Zahui got to play against one of her role models.
Beretta Famila Schio wrote a headline as they took the last remaining Quarter-Final ticket in Group A as they beat ZVVZ USK Prague 71-63. It handed a winning start to new head coach, Mauro Procaccini.
He said: "What can I say? My first game in in EuroLeague Women and I’m so satisfied with my girls who all played a great game against one of the top teams in Europe.
"We’ll soon start work for UMMC Ekaterinburg, but for now we will party," smiled Procaccini.
Dynamo Kursk managed to go through the whole Regular Season unbeaten and that was an accomplishment which Helena Ciak was proud of. The French national team center is in her first campaign overseas and her first with the Russian club.
Meanwhile, for a quartet of EuroLeague Women clubs, it's now only domestic action they can look forward to - including CCC Polkowice who signed off with a huge 94-58 reverse at UMMC Ekaterinburg.
"We are disappointed and sad about the outcome," said Polkowice leader Valeriya Musina.
"You can be defeated, but not like the way we were in this game.
"We hoped and got ready, but UMMC are like a dream team. We are realists and now EuroLeague Women is over for us," she concluded.
