30.03.2012

UMMC Ekaterinburg head coach Algirdas Paulauskas
"I think the game was very interesting for the fans. Basketball was very offensive minded tonight. We had a nice percentage and both sides had few turnovers. But to losing Maria Stephanova at the beginning of the game is dangerous for us."

Ekaterinburg point guard Sue Bird
"Obviously it is unfortunate but we don't have the chance to make it to the finals. With that being said, we know Spartak a lot, they know us. We know their strengths and weaknesses, they know ours. And in games like that we just try to steal a win. This time we were able to do so."

Sparta&K M. R. Vidnoje head coach Pokey Chatman
"Both teams are very familiar with each other. Sometimes these games get ugly because we are so familiar. But I think they were a lot more aggressive, got a lot of second chance points. Now we will go back on some things, we will rest, we will adjust and we will get ready for an important game. It is just like every other game. Every game is a championship game in our mind because we will go back to Russia and face some of the top teams in the world again.

Sparta&K power forward Candice Dupree
"It was a tough game for us after the first two matches. We allowed some points in the paint and then kept playing hard but couldn't come out with the win."
