Quotes Telekom Baskets vs. Okapi Aalstar

01.02.2012

Okapi Aalstar head coach Brad Dean
"At the end we did what we had to do: not to lose the game too high. But to be honest: I think that will not help us because the Hungarian team from Szolnok will also come to three wins. Either Szolnoki or Bonn have to win the last two games to give us a chance to reach the Quarter-Finals."

Okapi Aalstar player Kevin Kruger
"After we had a very bad first quarter we battled for our defense. 71 points on the road for the home team is not too bad, so I am proud of our guys. We have to take this over to the Belgian league."

Telekom Baskets Bonn head coach Michael Koch
"I think we played very well tonight. It was our goal to win the game not to focus on the direct comparison because we lost with 12 points in Belgium. It was not enough at the end but it was the first time in the last weeks we won a game because of our defense. We played with a lot of intensity and that is the reason why Okapi did not find the way into the game."

Telekom Baskets Bonn player Tony Gaffney
"For the last few days in practice we focused on our defense. I think we came out tonight following our game plan for 40 minutes. It is a big win in the EuroChallenge. We are now top of the group and have a good chance going forward to the next round."
