Predrag Krunic (coach Oldenburg):
"We had a great first quarter again. It was important to play with big confidence. Larissa are a good team and are playing in a high quality [domestic] league. In this close game we needed some good luck in the end. I´m glad that we started the Regular Season with a victory."
Rickey Paulding (Oldenburg):
"That was an important win for us. The game was very physical. I think this is typical in European Cup games. I´m glad we got this important win."
Giorgos Bartzokas (coach Larissa):
"I liked the atmosphere in this arena. We had an injured player in the first quarter and were not able to bring Corey Belser back onto the court. In the beginning we did not have enough concentration. In the European Cup games things are different than in the Greek league. It took us too long to adjust our game."
Sven Schultze (Olympia Larissa):
"We lost the last five games in the same way. After a slow start we try to close the gap but in the end it is not enough for us. Congratulations to Oldenburg."
