Congratulations to both!
We speak with Marlou De Kleijn after her
victory against TV Saalouis Royals:
Marlou, you have had
an impressive season in Wasserburg being The German SuperCup Champion, the
German Cup Champion and the German League Champion and with a perfect record of
34-0. What is your impression of this 2015-16 season?
I think we did an awesome job as a team. Of
course it was our goal to win the championship plus cup and we also talked
about being undefeated, but it's easy to talk about that stuff. The hard part
is really doing it, but we did it.
I'm so proud on our team we always kept this
goal in mind and stayed focussed.
On a personal level,
you have done a great job contributing with solid stats (13.1ppg, 2.5rpg, 2.6apg, 1.6spg) and being the starting
guard. How have you felt on the court?
I'm very happy with the season I had
personally. I think I played with way more confidence then the years before and
that's very positive for me. I hope I can develop like this.
It was my first eurocup season and it went
well. Of course we wanted to make the second round, we were so close, but not
Your TSV Wasserburg
have been crowned the German First Division League Champion after
overwhelmingly defeating TV Saarlouis Royals (81-49) in the final. What is your
impression about this Final and how did your team play?
Saarlouis is a very good team and it wasn't
that easy as it was the rest of the season. The first game was very close, but
we kept our heads cool and took the game over the last few minutes. I think
everybody was nervous and Saarlouis was ready to beat us.
The second game you could see everybody know
what to expect and we did way better. It was an away game in a full Saarlouis
gym and that's never easy, but we were never in danger in that game.
The last game was just amazing and we played
like we used to play. A full home gym for the championship, that's what
everybody wants no? We gave everything for this last game and I think you can
see that in the final score haha.
As usual TSV
Wasserburg's gym was full. What do you feel after winning your first German
League in front of supporters like that?
It was amazing. One of the best feelings after a
game I ever had. The supporters are just amazing. I can't describe how this
helps you during the game. Every game it makes me happy if its full again and
brings a lot of extra energy.
I'm happy we can give them a championship as a
reward for all their support.
