“We can be competitive with anyone”

Antonio Trípodi broke it all in Albatross victory over Montevideo, finished with 43 points. After the meeting he spoke with Basketball Total.

The scorer of the night threw his first sensations: “Undoubtedly we knew that it was a fundamental game for our aspiration to be among the eight, collectively we did very well, we were able to score 100 points and personally I also did well so I’m happy.”

Albatros dominated the game from start to finish: “One of the points of emphasis was to run the court and score quick goals, but also to be attentive in banking the reactions once we took an advantage. We were focused the whole game, they are a dangerous team and with their people they could come at some point ”.

The Ave lacked key chips such as Cocochito Álvarez and Manzana García: “When they are there, we are going to improve, we have to maintain the level of the youngest. I think we can win or lose but we can be competitive with anyone and we are going to give up everything ”.

Tripod, broke it all. He started with 15 points in the first quarter and was key to breaking the game: “In the friendlies it was good, with minutes and shooting, but I didn’t expect that much. It is just the second DTA for me, I played in 2019 in Albatros but I was very young, I was nervous, I just came out of training. Two years of standing affected me because I could never get into the shooting of tournaments to show myself. Now I am more mature and I hope to continue like this ”.

Finally, he spoke of the institutional commitment: “The infrastructure improved a lot with the court and a very good gym that opened recently. The truth is that Albatros put ten. To consolidate all this, the club made a greater investment than in other years, experienced players arrived to mix with the youngsters. We are not among the teams that are candidates but perhaps we come in that second step to get into the Playoffs, fight everyone and see what happens ”.
