COACH QUOTES


Quotes Telekom Baskets vs. PANELLINIOS

Michael Koch (Head Coach Bonn):  

"In both games we saw that we can play at a certain high level. This greek team can hold the tension high for 40 minutes. We have to work to play on such a level for a longer time."  

Elias Zouros (Headcoach Athen): 

"Thanks to my players even they started very bad. After a good start from Bonn we played better defense and controlled the game. It is important for us to win here in this gym."  

Player EJ Rowland (Bonn):  

"Athen realy spreaded out in the second half. They played well and took the game. We can be satisfied with our performance in the first half but could not keep the tension after the break."  

Player Djuro Ostojic (Athen):

"We are happy to make it into the next round. At the beginning we really did not get into the game. Telekom Baskets Bonn started very well and we have not been focused. In the end the big difference was a little bit to much."
