Helinho: ''Instituto was better''
CÓRDOBA (DIRECTV Liga Sudamericana) - Coach Helinho spoke about the defeat his team suffered against Insituto de Cordoba, 79-68, and the third and defining game at the Ángel Sandrín tonight.
"It was a balanced match, with two teams that risked a lot on the court. Instituto was better: they planted a strong defense in the closing moments, which allowed them to take advantage of shots and that's why they took the victory," said Helinho.
"Despite the defeat, the series is 1-1 and today we have a new opportunity. We have to show an aggressive defense and be more attentive of the Instituto shooters. From there, we must develop a freer offensive."
"I do not think that the pressure of the Instituto fans will generate pressure on us. We have a team that is used to playing in stadiums with many fans,” added the coach.
Tonight, a new DIRECTV Liga Sudamericana Champion will be crowned and will celebrate with the Horacio Muratore Cup.
