When the championship was interrupted in March, the team of Debrecen was at its best. This is the performance they intend to save for the next season. The sport division had a press conference two days before the season opening – on 1 October 2020 – which also had the situation of basketball in Debrecen on its agenda.
From the point of view of DEAC, the coronavirus epidemic put an end to the championship at the worst moment in March: the University of Debrecen’s team was occupying the fourth place by winning five league matches in a row, and was very much looking forward to the round of 16 in the Hungarian Cup planned to take place in Főnix Hall. This year, Adrián Kovács, Head Coach’s team with a slightly different composition, is preparing again for the most successful season of its history.
„We would like to repeat our performance from last year, but as sportsmen, we desire to get higher. We would like to be among the top three, and definitely to achieve good results in the Hungarian Cup” – said the young expert.
The Hungarian core of the team stayed pretty much together, and they were also able to keep dominant foreign players. They were joined by several high-quality and talented young players.
„I think we have the mission to do something great, if we are not hindered by the virus or injuries. So I say that our performance will determine 80-90 per cent of the whole season.” – emphasised László Polyák, team captain.
