It starts from where everything left off. March 11, 2020, Beretta is in Prague to play game one of the playoffs but, a few hours from the two-a-side ball, the game is canceled due to the rapid spread of Covid which had already hit our country. The entire demonstration was then canceled due to the definitive outbreak of the pandemic.

Now Schio has flown back to the Czech Republic, for today’s challenge (6 pm, live streaming on the channel Youtube of the EuroLeague Women) against the USK Prague, with another worrying atmosphere, the war in Ukraine, which is shocking the whole world. It is for this reason that FIBA, in coordination with the other sports federations, excluded the Russian teams from European competitions and therefore reshuffled the pairings of the Euroleague quarter-finals that the orange teams should have played against Salamanca.

The Czechs are among the top teams with a long European tradition: Euroleague winners in 2015, this year they are the second best team for points and assists, the first for rebounds. They have three absolute top players: Brionna Jones, center of the Connecticut Sun, averages 21 points and 7.6 rebounds; Alyssa Thomas, Jones’s partner in Connecticut, nearly double the double with 14.3 points and 9.6 rebounds; finally, Maria Conde, the Spanish small forward who is gaining momentum on the European stage with 17.2 points per game. The Gialloblù roster is also full of “gregarious” as the Slovenian guard Oblak (9.6 points and 5 assists), the Serbian center Stankovic (9.4 points and 6 rebounds) and the Czechs Vorackova and Vyoralova or the Slovak Balintova.

Praga is an extremely physical formation, with a very fast game and who loves running in the open field: the maximum expression of this philosophy is precisely Thomas who, from the height of his 188 cm, when he catches the ball with a defensive rebound covers the whole field up to opponent’s basket without anyone being able to stop it.

The Beretta, however, has what it takes to put the Prague players in difficulty with their defense that has created so many headaches for all the teams encountered so far. The perfect match will certainly be needed to conquer the Kralovka Arena, a feat that he succeeded in January 2019, in the last confrontation between the two teams. The series starts today at 6pm and will move to PalaRomare on Tuesday 15 March for race 2, before returning to the Czech Republic on Friday 18 for the eventual race 3.
