Quotes Bourges Basket vs Galatasaray

16.11.2011

Bourges small forward Cathy JOENS:
"After the lost games we knew and against a great team like Galatasaray, we knew we have to play our best basketball tonight. But even if Galatasaray is a really good team, the game is only to put balls in the basket and tonight we did. It was a close match and the two balls we lost certainly cost the win.
We have a good team, a good coach and good players but we have to fight at each game."

Bourges head coach Valérie GARNIER:
"We are disappointed because we lead during all the game. At the end we lost two balls and the last rebound and with Tina Charles it's two points. The team was generous tonight, they fight and play hard. When we play like that we can face teams as Galatasaray. We have to continue this way. The next game at Kaunas will be really important for us."

Galatasaray head coach Ceyhun YILDIZOGLU:
"First I want to congratulate the Bourges team for their game. In the first half we let Cathy Joens play and score three points. After the half time we had better defense. Our bench players were really important tonight like Ivanka Matic. We know we will have the final 8 at home but we really want to desserve it and show our best basketball."

Galatasaray point guard Isil ALBEN:
"It was my first game in Bourges and it was tough. Our good defense after the half time was one of the keys of the game."
