Dimitris Itoudis, in his first statements after Greece’s victory in the premiere against Croatia with 89-85, emphasized that it was a victory that will teach his players a lot, he praised the performance of Agravanis and left many possibilities for Papagianni’s participation in Saturday’s match (3/9) with Italy.

“Congratulations to the players. We made our first victory with adversity that we had both during the game and before it. There is no such thing in European basketball. Croatia is not a team that gives up the game, they don’t have that kind of personality, guidance . They have athleticism, we gave them things in the third quarter too, free kicks. I think that’s where we relaxed because we were +16 at halftime. We don’t have that kind of mentality and that will teach us. It’s better to talk when we win the game.

The game will give us things to see in the video. You don’t have much time. We have Italy tomorrow a team with a low shape, they have players who can create things. In a tournament we don’t think like that, it’s important that we started with a win. Thank you people, it was amazing.”

On what he keeps from the match:

“The fact that we always find an athlete who comes off the bench and gives something different. Agravanis was amazing. I don’t want to talk about any player separately, but the fact that we miss Papagiannis and Costas Antetokounmpo”.

On whether they will play against Italy:

“We’ll see. We’re time-to-hour. Papagiannis is better, we didn’t want to take any chances today because we have respect for all the teams and Panathinaikos and every team whose players are here. Papagiannis has a lot of hope to play tomorrow.” .
