“The neighborhood is happy with us”

Gonzalo Pasini was Olimpia’s top scorer on dates 7 and 8 of the regular phase and one of the key pieces of the victory against Olivol, which allowed Colón’s team to break the losing streak. After the double day he spoke with Basketball Total.

On the balance of the double date, he said: “It was a moment in which we had to put in the two forced games to be calm. We were able to put in the first one, right from the beginning, we knew how we had to play it, and in the second, he played us against the stop between games. Sometimes you are waiting outside to play again, that blurs you, cools you down and makes the second games more difficult than the first ”.

When talking about the match against Olivol, he commented: “In the first game we knew that he was a short opponent and that we had to put the ball down. I am fulfilling the role of pivot and we seek to take advantage of my height to score the goal below the basket, as we are with an open court, the wind does not help much. We also knew how to read it well in defense, the guys in the front row were great and I collaborated with some rebounds. We did a good job ”.

On the defeat at the second hour against Urunday, he said: “The stop affects us and other teams. Urunday is a tough opponent who we had already beaten before, but they are lower than us and they need the triumphs. It was a very even game, very physical, with many fouls. Besides being tired and the rivals who are very good, there are many Under 23 players who train every day, that also plays an important role in the rival ”.

Finally, he did not want to miss the opportunity to say thank you: “I want to thank the club for all the support. We are a team of friends, lifelong Olympia fans. They gave us this opportunity to represent the club and we are doing it in a great way. Also thank all the support of the people, the neighborhood is happy with us, and tell them that we are going to leave everything to make Olimpia as high as possible.
