It’s still not the same in attack. “I said it, the offensive team needs time to prepare,” recalls Stéphane Eberlin. However, Caen Basket Calvados tied the second victory in 24 hours, on Saturday, September 10, 2022, against Vitré (70-60). With six fewer turnovers (18 against 24), he showed progress in that register as well.

Too many stray bullets

In Vire, Caennais started in full (28-12, 10′). “Then we failed offensively in the second and third quarters,” regrets their coach. The match the day before put a strain on the legs and the opponent defended very hard. We fell back into the trap of stray bullets. » It was necessary to return the boost in the last quarter to maintain a small cushion beforehand.

With 15 points and 10 rebounds, Demond Watt gets the best rating (23). Yanik Blanc (10 points), Lucas Veraghe (10 points) and Florian Thibedore (11 points) also reached or surpassed the ten-point mark.

Brand : Ona Embo 5, Bílá 10, Awich 7, Veraghe 10, Thibedore 11, Bernaoui 2, Watt 15, Diamé 7, Njiba 3.

“It’s gonna be a crescendo”

There is progress, but Stéphane Eberlin expects better from his men. “We’re obviously not consistent enough,” he said. Are the Caennais moving fast enough in his eyes? “We’re in the thick of it, we’re not ahead, we’re not behind.” We found some freshness because we started to lighten the training phases. It will be a crescendo. We will continue to work to be as ready as possible for the Coupe de France against Boulogne on September 20. »

At least CBC found their way back to victory. It is not neutral in preparation either. “It’s important to develop good habits, to hate defeat.” Victories bring confidence. “The aim will be to win the final butter on Thursday 15 September 2022 at Vitré before we finally taste the games that matter. That is when we will see where Caen Basket Calvados will be.
