GAME REPORT


Coach and Player Quotes: Latvia - Russia

Stanislav Eremin (Coach, Russia):
Our main objective before the game was shutting down their fast-breaks and their perimeter guys shooting treys. Latvia is a very dangerous team, shooting nearly 50 % behind the arc. However, we have achieved our goal and the game was over in the first half.

Andrei Kirilenko (Player, Russia):
Latvia is one of my favorite teams in EuroBasket 2001 with their run & gun type of play. We were able to shut them down from the beginning.

Armands Kraulins (Coach, Latvia):
I would like to congratulate the Russian team and their coach for the win. We played very poor team defense against a opponent like Russia. Also, our low field goal percentage caused by great Russian defense and easy turnovers were the main reasons of the blow-out.

Ainars Bagatskis (Player, Latvia):
In order to beat Russia, the most important thing to do was to stop Andrei Kirilenko and we failed to do that. Turnovers were another factor in the big loss.
