Quotes Rivas Ecopolis vs. UE Sopron

18.12.2013

Rivas Ecópolis head coach José Ignacio Hernández
"The game was decided on small details. We suffered after a bad start, missing up to six three-pointers in the first quarter. We were bad on defence, but got better after the second quarter. We have a small core of players that are racking up many minutes and because of that we are missing fresher legs this time of the season. All in all, we were just down by three points with five minutes to go, and were not able to take the lead, so I think Sopron deserved the win. And it's always hard to beat a team that hits a 100% of their free throws."

Rivas Ecópolis guard Gaby Ocete
"We never stopped fighting, which is something our team shows week in week out, but we're missing some players which can make us feel tired. We always play to our best, but we committed some defensive mistakes. We have to try and play as fast as we did early on in the season to go back to winning games."

UE Sopron head coach Igor Polenek
"First of all I want to thank the home team for letting us use their uniforms. After the incident we suffered with the luggage, the people of Madrid and their club demonstrated to be good people. Tonight we saw the two youngest teams of the EuroLeague playing each other, I think we saw a good game. Then we suffered a minor injury by Hawkins, but we were able to hold on to an important victory."

UE Sopron guard Zsófia Fegyverneky
"It was a good game, we stopped Rivas from playing the way they like. We were focused all the time, very disciplined, and we reached a very important win, I'm so happy about it. Also Rivas played good, they were missing one player, but so we did after Hawkins got injured. We were strong on the inside."
