Giampero Ticchi, Italy Head Coach
"Israel is a very good team. They play good basketball. This game we had very good 3-point shooting. In the second half Israel changed defense and we lost the rhythm of the game, but we never had fear of losing this game. I think that we are smart and have strong concentration that's way we can play a good basketball."
Eli Rabi, Israel Head Coach
"First, I congratulate the Italian coach and players. Now - after the game - I can tell the game ended after the first quarter. The Italians were well prepared and played good. In the second half we tried to come back but we didn't manage. We did the best but it wasn't enough."
