Bye, bye, EuroCup... - Jan 25, 2013

Hello, world!

Such a very- long time! Lot of things happened since the beginning of the season, of course. And the most notable one was our EuroCup season. Crazy road trips, unknown places, and a bad second game during the quarterfinals series. Its done.

Weve been to Wasserburg (Ger), Sint Katelijne (Bel), Novosibirsk (Rus) during the pool stage. Our record at the end of the first phase, almost what we expected: 5-1. Not so bad. The FIBA ranking is a weird thing, but it gave us an interesting brackett.

We played Olimpia Grodno, for the eigthfinals. The road trip to Belarus was even more complicated that our 13000 km roundtrip to play Novosibirsk. We won the first leg in Lida by 19. The 7 points loss at home during game 2 was a minor incident then.

Ruzomberok, historical powerhouse of Euro women hoops, was the next step. Game 1 in Slovakia, game 2 at home. Their record is pretty weird: They are undefeated on the road, but still looking for a home win. We knew before the game that it was probably going to be tough: Their team is intense, playing hard... But didnt get the first leg of the series... And on last wednesday night, the statistics didnt lie, once again: -22, we got beaten, and bye, bye, EuroCup...

We now have to stay focus. The first goal of the season was to reach the quartefinals. The other one is to be qualified for the EuroCup next season. Lets go back to work.

After almost 40000km, 5 months and 27 games, we still have a long way to go.

Exciting.

I love this job.

Talk to you soon, hoopsters...

3-0, as good as it sounds...- Oct.6, 2012  (by Romain)

What's up, basketball world? My last post is quite old now, and a lot of things happened since that day. The team I'm working with as an assistant coach -Nantes Rez Basket, french women's 1st div- is now 3W-0L, a couple of weeks before entering the EuroCup pool stage. Working with this group is great. The team is well balanced, from every point of view: Profiles of players, talent, positions, tempers, youthness/experience, etc [read more]
Germany, Lithuania, summertime- Jul.17, 2012  (by Romain)

Hello, Once again, same sentence to begin my post: "Such a long time...". Yep, such a long time. While many coaches are actually getting ready for youth EC, or already leading their team to success (Or not... But I don't wanna upset my guys, or basically be the black cat...), I'm off. Offseason mode. In may, I had a great time with France u15W NT. First experience for me, as an assistant coach, with a French NT [read more]
