Valérie Garnier, Tango Bourges coach:
"We were really good in defense tonight but we lost our composure under the Kosice pressure. We have two days to analyse the game and correct our small mistakes, especially in defensive rebounds. Tonight we gave them too many second chances to score. The girls know the things to change. Kosice is really hard on defense, they can put hard pressure, and we have to manage our emotions and learn to take our time in attack."
Céline Dumerc, Tango Bourges:
“It was a real fight, both teams want to go to the Final 8. Maybe the game was not so nice to watch but it's always like that at the play-offs. We made a lot of mistakes. At times we’d thought the game was won and lost our concentration. We let Kosice come back to the game. The most important was to win, now we know it's going to be hard to win the second game we need."
Maros Kovacic, Good Angels Kosice coach:
"The key of the game is the third quarter when we fought really hard but we scored only 8 points. At this moment we could have broken the game [open]. Of course we will watch the game video. One thing to change is to adjust our zone defense."
Jia Perkins, Good Angels Kosice:
"We played great defense tonight but the offense was not so great. At the third quarter we missed a lot of opportunities to come definitively back into the game. Bourges made a good game tonight. Now we just have to win in Kosice on Friday."
