GAME REPORT


Quotes Greece - Croatia

Yannis Ioannidis, Head Coach, Greece:
"From my heart I want to congratulate the Croatian team and my colleague to ta great game. I understand how he feels right now. We made a lot of mistakes. And I'm satisfied we managed to keep the number down to a 9 point lead for Croatia. In the first half Croatia took 60% of the rebounds, but when we played stronger defence in the second half they only took 33%. It's impossible for a team playing like we did (in the first half) to win a game, so we made some changes, improved our defence."

Christos Charisis, Greece:
"I just listened to my coach (during the last nervous minutes). He said to me 'keep the ball' and 'shoot only if you can score'."

Neven Spahija, Head Coach, Croatia:
"I'm not disappointed. We showed that we can play at this level. And I must congratulate Ioannis Ioannidis and the Greek team. They showed a lot of courage in this game."

Dalibor Bagaric, Croatia:
"Me and my team played a pretty good game. Like my coach said we can't be disappointed now. The tournament just started and there are more games to play."
