We speak with Ana-Marija Begic :
After beating Kvarner (60-55) in semifinals, you have played and won the final against Ragusa. ¿How has this Cup been for you?
We knew that both rivals were really tough teams and that it wasn´t going to be easy to defeat them. However, winning the Cup was one of our realistic goals for this season and to win has been something great for us because it as also the first time that Medvescak won it.
You were really important in this Cup with 13 points in the Semifinal and with 16 points and 14 rebounds in the Final. ¿How do you feel about your contribution to the victory?
I was never thinking about if i was going to be the Cup´s best player. I only cared about winning the first place which i
would have never succeded if there wasn't for my teammates and great wish for
winning. We played as a team, which is the most important thing.
