"This was the first time that we played outside of Italy. It was very exciting for us to play in such a big arena with a lot of fans and such a nice environment. So we were very sensitive in the beginning. Bamberg played very strong, putting us under pressure, so we had to struggle for 25 to 28 minutes, because we didn't get an advantage in half court, But we gained confidence and tried to overplay the big men and our defense helped us play a better offense. At one minute left we were up by 5 but didn't win, because instead of shooting at the buzzer we lost the ball."
