Finland player Taru Tuukkanen:
"That was a tough game for us. None of our players quite caught a rhythm. Montenegro has five-six professionals on the team from some of the best leagues in Europe and only a couple of our players have that kind of experience. We failed on offense, we failed on some of the basics and everything just snowballed from there. We had a good conversation in the locker room after the game and we will keep working hard, try to gather ourselves and start the next game with a different attitude."
Finland coach Tommi Koskinen:
"The truth is that we are in a very difficult situation as a team. We have no solutions on offense and it affects our self confidence. We have been shooting tremendously low percentages in the last three games. If we miss close range shots and layups time after time, we give our opponents way too much help. Our team spirit is so good that no one is going to point any fingers. We have to believe that this just was an extremely bad day and that tomorrow will be better. We have a reason to be a little ashamed tonight, but tomorrow we shall transform that shame into fury and strike Bulgaria harder than ever. If we can't get our offense going, our defense must be on totally different level."
Montenegro coach Miodrag Baletic:
"We just had a difficult game against Bulgaria, and because of that we were afraid of this game. We knew the basic aspects of the Finland game very well and saw that they had difficulties in their 1-on-1 defense. I must say our scouting was extremely good. We warned our team about Finland's organized team defense and patient offense and, as the numbers show, we did a really good job."
