Game-MVP: Nebojsha Bogavac
Yves Defraigne, Head Coach, Dexia Mons:
“We had chances to made a better score but we lost the rhythm that Hemofarm kept. The greatest danger for us was Bogavac. We played well in the first half but after we evened the score we let Hemofarm take advantage again and so we lost our chance to win.”
Ivan Gemaljevich, Dexia Mons:
“Our team could not keep the rhythm of Hemofarm's play. I do not think that our team played badly but I think that Hemofarm was better.”
Aco Petrovich, Head Coach, Hemofarm:
“I am satisfied with my team and I am very glad that we won this game because the audience was very good today and we played at home. The most dangerous players for us were - as I suspected - Jaumin, Evans and Potter, Our player Djogo had an injury in the third quarter and we are still not sure how bad it is. The one thing that I could say that was not good was our rotation in defense. Now we have two games that we won and I hope there will be more!”
Ivan Stefanovic, Hemofarm:
“Dexia Mons is a very good team and they beat teams such as Anwil who we lost against in our previous game. We got in shape and I think that our team is in good form now.”
