Tyson Perez, player on loan from Unicaja in Andorra. “He’s an emotional boy, but once the game starts he becomes a competitive animal. What you are interested in is winning. I’m sure he’s looking forward to meeting Melvin or Will Thomas. He will only think about doing what he has to do and competing. Perhaps due to the lack of rhythm I am making a mistake. A few days ago I talked to him on the occasion of his birthday. The important thing is that he plays again, is healthy for the rest of the season and has no problems. Tomorrow is his first game back from injury and we don’t know how he will return, but he is a player who can make a big impact.”
Which player will not continue to perform given the good performance of the squad? “It’s February and a thousand things are happening. And not from today until June, but from today until next week. I hope we have this problem.”
Meeting with Andorra. “I think the fact that we were traveling on a charter has a high winning percentage on Wednesday. Back to team week, a stopover trip to Vitoria and you fall short in the fourth quarter. This performance in Cholet helped us get through the final quarter well. It might be a little difficult for us to get into the game tomorrow, but they’re fine.”
Andorra analysis. “The outside line is very dangerous. They have a lot of players who work for the team. This is a well-rounded team, although they may lack size on the outside lane. They have talent. It’s going to be a tough game at the defensive level soon. This is the team with the fewest losses in the League.
Praise for the Andorran coach. “We coaches have this bad habit. The next opponent is always the hardest because he is the one in front of them. We are second and I appreciate it. You already know this. This is a particularly competitive team. Their competitive spirit stands out and I think given the level of their play they should have a few more wins. I think we are already past the two bad weeks we had in Joventut and Gran Canaria, which became even more noticeable after Alberto’s defeat. Compared to Tofas, it was already noticeable that we are starting, but we are already at a higher point of daily demand. We’re going to travel and play virtually.”
State of Barreiro. “He has a doctor’s appointment next week to clear him of the injury and then he needs to stop being afraid of his arm. “We are thinking about rescheduling this hearing so that he can return for the match against Strasbourg and so that Del Pino can attend classes as he should.”
