Emmeline Ndongue, Tango Bourges:
"The calculation for the play-off [pairings] was too complicated so we just wanted to win the game. Now, we will have two games at home and we know it's very important. During the third quarter, Kosice came back with more intensity and it took a long time for us to adapt to that. Now we know we have to win two more games to make it to the Final Eight."
Valérie Garnier, Tango Bourges coach:
"The target was to win and we achieved it. Kosice was here to win and reach a better place in the ranking. In the first half we were on 66% from two-point shooting, it was just impossible to continue like that. In the beginning of the second half, we lost more balls due to the intensity of the Kosice defense. The players did their job in defense and kept Kosice under 60 points. It was a real EuroLeague game."
Zuzanna Zirkova, Good Angels Kosice:
"I want to first congratulate Bourges for their win. We had to start more focused and more prepared. We didn't have any intensity [in our game] during the first 20 minutes. "
Maros Kovacic, Good Angels Kosice coach:
"We didn't start in a good way but in the second half, we played some really good defense. We took a lot of information for the next [series of] games."
