We speak with Robyn:
PEAC Pécs is currently third in the Hungarian First Division league with a record of 3 wins and 2 losses. How do you think the team is progressing so far? How can you describe the start of your season?
I think the team is progressing very well, with each game we continue to get better and better.
The start of the season was a bit slow for us but I think in the past couple of games we have played very well as a team.
Despite having already played 6 games, you arrived to Hungary just 1 month ago. How do you feel on the court and how have you adapted to a new country, new league, and new team?
I always feel good when I'm on the court. My teammates make playing basketball here in Pecs very exciting because the team chemistry is amazing!
On Sunday your team defeated Uniqa Sopron in their home court, with good players like Louice Halvarsson, Zsofia Fegyverneky or Sara Krnjic. How was the game and how do you think that it will affect in your team moving forward?
Beating Sopron on their home court was an unexplainable feeling! I am so proud of my teammates. We showed strength and courage because we never gave up and we fought until the very end. Winning that game helped us realize that nothing is impossible if we work hard enough !
The result of the game was so close, 76-78 and for sure a great game to watch. Which was the best moment of the game?
For me, the best moment of the game was when the buzzer went off and we all went crazy, jumping up and down and celebrating together!
