Quotes Maxima Broker Kosice vs. TEO Vilnius

17.12.2008

Štefan Svitek (Maxima Broker head coach):
"It was a very difficult match. We were down from the beginning, but went on to lead at the end of the first quarter. We had an eight points lead after half-time and we let the opponent score only 30 points. During the whole match we played good defense. Vilnius grabben only a few rebounds in the last quarter and started to play more aggressively after changing to zonal defense. We lost the lead and also the pace. But our key players stayed focused and managed to clinch this important win. I think we deserved the victory."

Ivana Jalčová (Maxima Broker forward):
"Of course, we are satisfied. We wanted to win even by one point, so we can finish third in the group. We succeeded and we are very happy about it."

Lindsey Wilson (TEO Vilnius point guard):

"It was an important game for both teams. I played for Ružomberok here in Slovakia, and I am glad for the possibility to play here again. I had a few fans here today. I knew very well that Kosice have a good team. We fought hard, but we were still a few points behind. In the last minutes of the game the home team made some important shots and it was difficult [for us] after that."
