UMMC Ekaterinburg head coach Olaf Lange:
"We saw a game with two very balanced teams. We matched each other well. We were lucky enough at the end to win the game. I was not happy with the first half, we played under value and ability. We take a lot of learning lessons froum this game."
UMMC Ekaterinburg player Deanna Nolan:
"I wasn't also happy with the first half. Then we came more aggressive, made a lot of outside shots, kept leading."
Galatasaray head coach Ekrem Memnun:
"It was a great basketball game. Most of the game we played very good in defence and organized basketball. Late in the second half we made very simple mistakes, we let them score easy baskets. UMMC is one of the strongest team in EuroLeague Women, but we also believe that we will be a tough competitor, this was a test game. I'm proud of my players, anyway on the home court we should always win."
Galatasaray player Isil Alben:
"First of all we are very sad because we had a chance to win. But this is one of the hardest games, they have good players. People saw that we were very close to win and missing some players, we will get better."
