Basket Landis wants to join the round of four starting Tuesday, May 10

“We had a good game at the beginning, we showed that we wanted it, we are full of confidence, but there is no excess of confidence, as the background Lidija Turcinovic shows. We expect a tough game anyway. We keep our focus and we will have to play with a lot of energy, as we have done since That moment …

“We had a good game at the beginning, we showed we wanted it, we are full of confidence, but there is no excess of confidence, as the background Lidija Turcinovic shows. We expect a tough game anyway. We keep our focus and we will have to play with a lot of energy, as we did Since the start of the season.”

Especially since the French champion, ambitious and intends to extend his season for a few weeks, can save himself a meeting, while the matches are linked in the final stages. “It would be good to finish the series on Tuesday because if we validate our qualification in two games, we can take advantage of the opportunity to recover on Friday, instead of playing. It would be good because the season is long (1). Three games in a quarter, then three in a half, even five Matches in the final, in one month, that’s a lot. And we’ll have more time to prepare our future opponent (Borg or Montpellier, editor’s note), especially if they qualify at the same time as we qualify.”

“In basketball, you have to have a great deal of humility, because from game to game, a lot can happen.”

But before considering the semi-finals, it will once again be necessary to extinguish Flames Carolo, who hopes to set the Arena on fire, for what could be his last home game of the season. “In basketball you have to have a lot of humility, because from game to game a lot can happen, Arden coach Romuald Yermo explained after the first leg. We will have to enter the game with more intention and defensive aggressiveness. We allowed them to play with great confidence. “It’s not suitable for the first leg. The players that are there are able to do a lot better than tonight (Saturday). With a strong heart, nothing is impossible.”


The Fauthux Marines remain in at least four 10-point games, including 16 units, on Saturday, May 7, against Charleville-Meziere.

Turcinovic on familiar ground

Julie Barnes know they are expected to be in the Ardennes, but as they already were when they arrived recently, Wednesday 27 April. Four days after their success in the Coupe de France against Bourg, and then celebrating for (very) long hours, Landis made the difference at the end of the match to beat Charleville-Meziere (64-73).

“I’m happy to be back in the Ardennes, but I’m still happy to be back in Mont-de-Marsan after the match”

To renew this impressive performance, Basket Landes will be able to count on a player who knows the track well, Lidija Turcinovic. Like Marie-Yves Paget (2017-2019), Franco-Serp played for the Ardennes for one season (2016-2017). And if it was “not a special match” because “she knew a lot of clubs during it.” [sa] (Montpellier, Arras, Toulouse, Charleville-Mezière, Nantes, Assaville, Basket Lands, editor’s note), gold medalist at the European Youth Olympic Festival in 2009 is still happy to find Flames Carolo.

Mariana Tullo and the Landaises know that they are expected to arrive in the Ardennes.

“I’m happy to be back in the Ardennes, especially if we can beat them, but I’m still happy to be back in Mont-de-Marsan after the game, because I’m happy with who I am today, a 27-year-old defender laughs. It wasn’t my best season, That’s for sure, but it wasn’t the worst either. (2) We were still in the Coupe de France final, even if we lost (against Borg, 65-75.) The rear had to wait another five years to win the event for the second time, with Basket Lands ( after 2013 with Montpellier).

Focus on basketball

Disturbed by last season’s physical malfunction (ankle sprain and knee arthroscopy), Lidia Tursinovic has been able to hold her together this season between the European Cup and the Championship. “I am glad I was able to find my rhythm, through the sequence of matches,” explains Franco-Serb. “I was able to think about basketball more than anything else. Two games a week is a rhythm that I really like. There is no time to procrastinate, because everything is connected quickly. Great. You can recover quickly when you lose and when you win, confidence can build up quickly.”

Reunited with her former coach and one of her former teammates (Amal Boudra), Lidia Tursinovic held off at zero point in Saturday’s first leg – which she wants to “bring more aggressiveness to the [son] game” – now hopes to revive the torch in the Ardennes, to allow Basket Landes to find the last four and continue to dream of a double.

(1) Basket Lands played 43 games this season. Only Bourget played more (44).
(2) In shooting, Lidija Turcinovic has achieved more than 47% success during the season, her second best total after the 2019-20 season, with Basketlands and Lyon (58.1%). This season they are up 41% in the league.
