Quotes Galatasaray MP vs. ZVVZ USK Prague

08.12.2011

ZVVZ USK Prague Head Coach Lubor Blažek:
"We came here to win. We were prepared well. Unfortunately it seems we paid a price for our 21 turnovers and lost rebounds. We made more field goals than Galatasaray but had 19 less free throws. In such a game every free throw is important. Galatasaray had 24 free throws so the point difference from the free throws. Next week we play VICI Aistes Kaunas, it's gonna be an important game. I would like to congratulate Galatasaray."

ZVVZ USK Prague point guard Elin Eldebrink:
"The atmosphere was great, their fans are great. Of course it's hard to come here and play. We came here to win, we wanted it. We played good defence and stayd close to them. We also had a close game at home [against them]. [A lot of] lost balls and rebounds proved crucial."

Galatasaray Medical Park Head Coach Ceyhun Yildizoglu:
"I think that today everybody watched a great game. We fought, they also fought and at the end of the game they had a chance of winning it. In the last two minutes we played inside and they couldn't stop Tina [Charles]. In the beginning Isil [Alben] made full-court pressure to their point-guards and I think if we can play each game like this we can beat all EuroLeague teams."

Galatasaray Medical Park point guard Isil Alben:
"Euroleague is really a tough competition where every team can beat each other and we saw it this week in our group. Today we did a great job. You know Alba [Torrens] is not playing, she's really important player for us. When she's on the court we play defensively and offensively better. We are very happy, they're very good and have some new players. First time I played against Penicheiro, when I was younger, I used to watch her games  in the WNBA, she's great player and it was a good feeling playing against her."
