In 40 minutes of basketball Solna Vikings show both good and the ugly side of Vikings 2015 team.

First 20 minutes Vikings had control of the game. The game was played in a pace wanted. Offensively Solna moved the ball well and got good looks from inside and out. Defensively Solna forced the home team to play 5 vs 5 basketball. With good balanced offense Vikings were able to play efficient transition defense.

Transition defense and 1 vs 1 defense were one of the biggest things Vikings focused on before the game. Also these two things worked great in the first two periods.

Then after half time came the ugly. Sundsvall came out aggressive and took control of the next 20 minutes. Sundsvall ran over the Vikings by being quick over half court and attacking the basket.  In 1 vs 1 plays the Vikings were constantly getting beaten. Sundsvalls transition offense and 1 vs 1 play destroyed the whole team defense completely.

The aggressiveness of Sundsvall made Vikings passive and out of balance for the rest of the game both offensively and defensively.

Highs and lows like the season has been so far. Now the Vikings need to hold on to the highs and learn from the lows. Vikings team looks forward to resting the weekend and start the last part of the season by getting ready for the next road trip ahead.

Next week plan?

Get everybody healthy, playing permissions in order and practice hard as a team. First part of the week focus on Vikings. Last part of the week focus on KFUM Nässjö.

Next stop, Nässjö
