Serbian Adrijana Knezevic signed with Campus Promete in November 2014 and since then she has been one of the top contributors to the team that with two games left is fighting to stay in Liga Femenina.
Adrijana played a great game last friday in the win against C.B Al-Qazeres with 13 points 6 rebounds and 5 assists for +15 efficiency in a game that could have been their last bullet if they had lost it.
In her comeback season to Spain, Adrijana Knezevic is averaging excellent 12.5 points and 4.7 rebounds per game, adding also leadership, determinantion and leadership to Campus Promete.
We spoke with
Adrijana two games before the end of the regular season:
managed to beat the CB Al-Qazeres by 60-72 and thus follow a mathematical
chance of permanence two games to finish the regular season. What
is special about this game and how you lived?
last game was very complicated and very important for both teams. Personally
I think we have a better team than them but we knew that if we wanted to win
had to give the best of us. In
fact, it was a very intense and very exciting game finally managed to win and
thus achieve our first goal.
us it was like winning a final since we played the all out if we wanted to
continue with options in this competition. It
was a deserved victory because we worked hard both in attack and defense and
went more than ever a team.
this game you have been with Chanel Mokango the most valued of your team
with 13 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists for valuation +15 player. How did you feel
during the game?
such games there are better players but better equipment. Certainly
there are games in which you are most successful and have more options than the
rest, but one player alone does not win games. If
my teammates had not passed me the ball or had not sought me when perhaps he had
better options, there would have scored.
did a great game and in the end, is the set that counts. I
am very happy and proud of all of them and the pace we set in the field.
Wednesday comeback to Lobete to play against Star Center-Uniferrol (ranked
tenth) and Saturday Wurzburg before you visit the Perfume Avenue. How
do you face these last two very important games?
is true that we are in a difficult situation because we all know we need to win
both remaining games if we want to stay in the league. We
are also aware that not only depends on us if not what the other teams and that
the more we complicate things.
I think we are working very hard and making a great effort to stay in Women's
circumstances prevent eventually it will hit very hard but now we have to have
all the expectations placed on keeping.
respect to our opponents, I think Ferrol has a very strong team. In
attack has very good players but we will try to stop them with our defense and
win the game behind. There
we lost in overtime but at home we have to beat them because we can not lose
this opportunity and letting our wonderful audience that comes to encourage and
bet for us game after game.
not much to say. It
is the only Spanish representative in the Euroleague and the leader of the
Women's League. His
numbers speak for themselves and will be a very difficult game. Now
just think about ourselves and our possibilities. The rest we'll see.
move to Campus Promete came when the team was a balance of 0 wins and 7 losses
and partly arrival has helped win several games (6 wins and 11 losses since). What
your assessment of the season and what have you contributed to the Campus
promises in your year back to Spain?
is true that being a very difficult season and that our staff has noticed quite
being a debutante Women's League team.
also believe that we could be in a better qualifying situation we have now but
in turn'm sure the club will have a very bright future in women's league in the
not too distant future.
now it is difficult but we will not stop fighting or fight as a team because we
have not had much luck in games not mean we can not learn from our mistakes and
a personal level is a great pleasure to return to play in Spain and I am
delighted with both the club and the team.
this experience again and to share a dressing room with great players and
people as they are all my friends is a pleasure. So
try to stay together during the two games we have left and try to save.
