COACH QUOTES


Quotes Antwerp Giants vs. WBC Raiffeisen Wels

Eddy Casteels, Antwerp Giants coach:
"[Coming into the game] knowing the result of the game Tartu-Artland in advance - this looks very bad. I respect our opponents; they beat Besiktas by the way... Jason Conley - our players underestimated his strength."

Bryan Hopkins, Antwerp Giants:
"In the first half we lacked focus. We turned it around in the third quarter, but in the end they made their shots."

Raoul Korner, WBC Raiffeisen Wels coach:
"We were concentrated in the beginning, then we somehow lost control. We had too many individual performances in our game. The third quarter was very strange but we did not panic. At the end we made our shots."

Jason Conley, WBC Raiffeisen Wels:
"We were losing it in the third quarter, but we remained focused. We stepped up defensively and this helped us in the end."
