Copenhagen looked to control Poland’s Logan Cookinham as she scored the first 3 points of the match.

“I think the difference in the game was basically our defensive pressure, which allowed us to get out there and be able to run down the field, get easy lay-ups on a few steals and relax a bit after that. Continuing that tenacious defense that we love to play and making our offense work from there. Obviously Charli Carroll was a huge factor in this win,” Copenhagen coach Natalie Scott said.
“Honestly, I’ve been working on it for a week, because unfortunately my twin tower got injured in the gym. A little accident happened that put a little more pressure on me because I didn’t have the person I felt most comfortable with. So being able to take control really gave me more confidence as the game went on,” said Charli Carroll who scored 33 points in the win.
“Really exciting. I’m so excited to be able to do it with this team because a lot of my friends are in it and we’re just really close and it’s a feeling that I can’t describe. I’m so happy,” said said Samantha Stokely.
Stokely had 9 points, 9 rebounds and 5 steals in the win.
