Quotes Rivas Ecopolis vs. Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje

06.02.2013

Sparta&K head coach Pokey Chatman:
"I think that we were able to show our best defence in the second half, we've had some bad shots before, and their players were very active. We were struggling playing transition, but we stepped up in the second quarter. We knew that it'd be a tough game, it's always like that here, and we're happy about getting this win."

Sparta&K player Marina Kuzina:
"For me, the key is that we're doing good practices and we felt good during the warm up. We were able to play together, as a team; we hit some good three-pointers, two-pointers ... We had a good shooting day and that helped a lot to close the game."

Rivas head coach Miguel Mendez:
"As a recap, I would say that we played to the limits. We're having problems with our post players, as Ziomara Morrison is injured and Aneika Henry played through illness, and that toughness inside which is a good feature of our team, we lacked it tonight. We had problems attacking their zone, our backcourt players struggled to find easy shots. We suffer when we cannot run and Sparta&K knew how to find our weakness."

Rivas player Anna Cruz:
"It was clear that they have a deeper roster, they accounted on our problems with the inside game and knew how to punish us. We were lacking a deeper rotation and, although we tried as hard as we could, we were not able to log the win; they played quite physical."
