Shar, who won the Catalan Cup, is worried: sometimes we play well and sometimes we don’t know what to do

The newly formed Š. “Barcelona”, coached by Jasikevicius, won the control tournament of the Catalan Cup on Wednesday. In the final in Tarragona, “Barca” beat the basketball players of Badalona “Joventut” 92:82 (17:21, 24:26, 27:22, 24:23). The tournament’s Most Valuable Player Award (MVP) went to Nico Laprovittola, who recently became the American champion with Argentina.

“I want to congratulate my men for the victory in this tournament. And we dedicate the victory to our physiotherapist Edu Torrents, who is leaving after many years of work at the club. A wonderful personality, a great friend. It’s a really nice idea to let him lift the cup he won,” Š said after the match. Jasikevicius.

Speaking about the match, he noticed that his students were not as active as the opponents at the beginning: “However, we managed to rise. It could appear that we were always in control of the match, but it was not so, because it is difficult to play against Badalona’s team. Little by little we are improving the game. It’s always better to learn, improve and win.”

Š., who is working in Barcelona for the third season. Jasikevičius won this cup with the team for the first time. Both last year and the year before, the team coached by a Lithuanian stumbled in the finals of the tournament.

In the entire history of the tournament, since the 1980s, the Barcelona team has won this cup 23 times.

Despite the joy of the first trophy of the season, the Lithuanian invites you to stay alert.

“It doesn’t give us much confidence in our own strength, because we still don’t know much about ourselves. The players will come to training happier, but we are still a long way from where we want to be. We know that sometimes we can “read” the game quite well, but sometimes men don’t know what to do. But all this is normal and logical. There is a lot of work ahead,” said Š. Jasikevicius.

The Spanish championship will begin at the end of September, but before that, the Barcelona team is waiting for the domestic Super Cup tournament, which will be held in Seville this weekend. In the semifinal Š. Jasikevičius’ students will play against the same Joventut of Badalona.
