Quotes Artland Dragons vs. Tartu Rock

Thorsten Leibenath, Head Coach Artland Dragons:
"I believe that Coach Visnapuu and his team were really prepared, came out with the right intensity and mind set. Our team couldn't find its rhythm and didn't show enough intensity. I like the fact that we were able to change our mentality. Our game plan was to get the ball inside, which didn't work in the first half because of our foul trouble. In the second half Darius Hall did a great job inside. I think our best player was Darren Fenn because he was the only one that also played well in the first half. I am also giving a lot of credit to our fans. They stayed positive when we were down by 19 points in the second quarter, although we didn't deserve their support. I am not taking that for granted."

Darren Fenn, Artland Dragons center:
"I am giving a lot of credit to Tartu. In the first half we were just reacting and they were moving the ball very well. We came out with a lot more energy in the second half. That is why we won this game."

Indrek Visnapuu, head coach Tartu Rock:
"I congratulate the Dragons for their good work. We have lost our good play in the second half. You cannot win a game when the opponent scores 59 points in one half. We also had eight turnovers in the third quarter. That shows that we played headless. The win is okay for the Dragons."

Tanel Tein, Tartu Rock guard:
"We knew that the Dragons are a good team. Nevertheless we started very well and were controlling the game. At the end of the second quarter we lost that control and the game got closer. The Dragons played more aggressive in the second half and gained confidence minute by minute. At the end they also hit the difficult shots and we couldn't get back into the game."
