27.10.2010

Lucas Mondelo, Head Coach of Halcon Avenida Salamanca:
"It was a difficult game for us but we knew we have to expect it as the roster of USK Prague is very strong. We wanted to play our game whatever it takes but USK did not allow us. But we were figthing hard and managed to win, maybe also thanks to little bit of luck towards the end of the game."

Alba Torrens, player of Halcon Avenida Salamanca:
"As coach says we were expecting a very close game, although we had problems with rebounding in this game we managed to win. In the end of the game we played disciplined which paid back and maybe the luck stayed with us, too."

Lubor Blažek, Head Coach of ZVVZ USK Prague:
"The roster of Halcon Avenida is also very strong so we knew that we need to get ready for tough game, too. The team was preparing for this game, we knew what we wanted to play. But in the first half-time we received 9 or 11 easy ponits from fastbreaks, which cost us a lot of energy and we had troubles to keep up with the score. A final loss by 1 point is painful but at the same time it is a good motivation for us. I believe in my team and hopefully we will do better in further games."

DeLisha Milton – Jones, player of ZVVZ USK Prague:
"Both teams were fighting hard in this game, both teams wanted the victory. Although we lost the game, we have to learn from it for future games because this game can prepare us for what we can expect from other Euroleague teams. All game went in very high tempo fullcourt. Undoubtedly our team did great on rebouds, gave a lot of intensity into the game and the heart. On the other hand in hot moments we made some unneccesary mistakes and were missing those few points in the end, and togehter with the fact that we only had 5 free thows during the game it reflected in the result."
