Women’s A1 basketball. The Croatian winger star of the success against Lucca with 17 points and 12 rebounds: “It was important to move the ranking”
With 17 points scored and 12 rebounds (third overall in Serie A1 on matchday 4), the Croatian great winger Nina Dedic was one of the protagonists of the first seasonal success of Costruzioni Italia Broni.
«I think the match against Lucca was very interesting for the fans because it was fought, but we were ahead from the start and this gave us confidence. – explains Dedic, 24 years old – It was very important to get this victory at PalaBrera because we had really difficult opponents in previous matches, such as Venice and Ragusa ». The Croatian led Broni with an excellent 58% from 2 points: “Yes, obviously I’m happy with my performance – she says – especially because our team won, it was the most important thing because we wanted to unlock the ranking”.
Experience in Poland
Until last season, Dedic played for Sleza (Poland), the team from Wroclaw, a city in Lower Silesia, on the Oder River, which has around 640,000 inhabitants. Now she finds herself in a town of just under 10 thousand inhabitants, but she is happy with her new experience in Oltrepo. “Broni is a really nice little town – he says – and I like being here. My companions are very helpful with me. We are still working to play better together and we get along well ». Are you good with Italian? “I really like your language and I hope to speak it soon,” he replies with a smile. Dedic is at his first experience in our A1 series: «I think the Italian championship is tough and every match will be a challenge, but we will continue to fight and ensure as many victories as possible». On Saturday Broni, with a duo at 7 pm, for the 5th day will be at PalaRomare in Schio against Famila Wuber, who today is involved in the Euroleague on the field of Ark Gdynia (Poland). The Scledensi won a victory and remedied 2 defeats, while the Poles are still standing at 0 points in group B: “Schio is a great team, built to participate in the Euroleague – concludes Dedic – but we will do our best to stop them in attack because they have so many good scorers ». The Schio-Broni match will be directed by Daniele Calella from Bologna, Rosa Anna Nocera from Cosenza and Matteo Roiaz from Muggia (Trieste). The team resumed training at PalaBrera. With the return of Federica Mazza and Cecilia Albano he is working in full ranks. Schio, leaders with full points together with Campobasso and Reyer Venezia, is certainly a very difficult obstacle. –
