Quotes VICI Aistes vs. Halcon Avenida

08.12.2010

Lucas Mondelo, Halcon Avenida coach:
"I want to congratulate the home team for their victory; they showed a lot of desire and played to the limit. We came off cold because of their hard defense. When we got our inside-outside game going on, we gave them trouble. We had bad luck in the last couple of possessions and they made us pay by making a couple of three pointers. All the team is to blame for today's attitude. One positive thing is that the team was able to come back despite the bad start. One thing we didn't do properly is we allowed them 17 offensive rebounds. It is impossible to win a game when the opponent has so many offensive rebounds."

Silvia Dominguez, Halcon Avenida player:
"VICI Aistes played hard defense; they were more intense than us. Courtnay Pilypaitis and Marina Solopova played a huge game and they were scoring three pointers with ease. It was hard for us to defend them. We managed to come back from 15 points down, but now we must go only for victories in the future."

Mantas Sernius, VICI Aistes coach:
"Before the game we had two goals - to stop their transition game and limit the points they score in the paint. We did not manage to stop their fast breaks, but we did limit their points in the paint. That was the key to our victory. We are sorry for Ausra Bimbaite, because it looks like she got a serious injury. Courtnay Pilypaitis is progressing very fast and today she was an important part of our victory."

Vita Kuktiene, VICI Aistes player:
"We wanted to win so badly, especially after five losses in a row. We needed this win to keep our hopes alive to qualify to the next round. We hit a lot of three pointers and that is something we lacked before."
