"This was a much needed win for us and I value it more than the home win over defending FIBA Europe League Champions UNICS. BC Kyiv are a very strong and balanced team and right now the two points that we’ve earned can be considered as our main success so far this season."
Lior Eliyahu, Galil Elyon forward:
"We are very happy with the result of the game, since we managed to avenge our loss in Kyiv.
"Yes we lost by 50 points in our last FIBA Europe League game to UNICS, but this doesn’t mean anything: we are a young team and every game makes us smarter and gives us much needed international experience."
Victor Berezhnoi, BC Kyiv assistant coach:
"Our team coped very well with the offensive plan, but our defense left much to be desired. In my opinion, the reason for our loss is the fact that in this game no BC Kyiv player managed to inspire the team."
