Quotes TTT Riga vs Gambrinus

05 November 2008

Ainars Cukste (TTT Riga head coach):

"We were expecting a very tough game and indeed it was. We played much better today, especially in defense and we are very happy that we managed to win this game."

Ieva Kubliņa (TTT Riga center):

"I'm very happy about our victory. Finally we won a game after three losses in a row. We can play. We can even play better than today. We missed too many open shots, made some mistakes, there is still room for improvement. We hate to lose. We tried to prove for ourselves and our fans - yes, we can."

Vlastimil Havlik (Gambrinus assistant coach):

"We didn't play well. We coudn't stop three players of TTT Rīga - Troina, Carson and Kublina. They scored a lot of points and didn't allow us to take initiative. In the final minute, we were lucky to score two three pointers but it wasn't enough to win. In fact, we lost our two last games by two points. Against CSKA we showed our best performance of this season. Liene Jansone was sick and she stayed four days in a bed, so she was not in her best shape."

Liene Jansone (Gambrinus forward):

"This game was not in "Gambrinus" style. We didn't score in offense and TTT Riga was ready to win this match. It was possible to see from the first second - they will not give up. After our first loss to Venezia, our routine was more intense. This team - Gambrinus - played in the Final Four this spring, you know. Against CSKA we were on the right track, today it was the opposite."
