The State Cup Semifinals press conference was held today (Sunday) at Pais Arena in Jerusalem. Maccabi Bazan Haifa were represented by head coach Rami Hadar and captain Dagan Yivzori.
Dagan Yivzori on tomorrow’s semifinals game: “I am sure that we will come and give a fight, and I hope that in this game we will get the few points we needed to make last Monday in order to win the game.”
Yivzori on being in this position before: “It’s the second time in my career in the Cup semifinals, and it’s a special feeling. As a leading player it’s a responsibility, which I have felt all the year, by the way. I like this responsibility, and that’s why you play basketball.”
Rami Hadar on the Greens recent game against Tel Aviv: “Last game against Maccabi Tel Aviv was a different type of game. I hope that we will stick to our system that we have executed this season, and we will manage to compete.”
Hadar on Haifa’s game style: “We are trying to be intense more than aggressive. I don’t know if it’s an advantage, but this is us, and I like it. We also are having fun doing it. I hope that we will take another small step tomorrow.”
