“I have to be honest: I’m a little talkative,” said team boss Stano Steljammer in a truly unbelievable evening of victory. “The women here have rewarded themselves for their hard and very professional work throughout the summer. Every player in our 3 × 3 program – including those who are not here – played a key role in this victory! With 10: 8, the red-white-red women won the semifinal highlight against the United States.
After the Austrians conceded defeat to the Americans by only one point in the group, they were hot for the semifinals – and showed from the outset that excitement was possible on this day. Chil, in particular, thrilled her first match on this scale, and Sagerer made life difficult for American women – and 17:15 led Austria to a thrilling victory.
In the final against Spain everything was possible in the final seconds, with a score of 15:16 just seven seconds before the end, with a bad defeat and a thin defeat, which feels like a win anyway. And exactly. Second place not only brought in a $ 3,000 prize money, but also one of the biggest wins in Austrian basketball history.
