Quotes BC Avtodor - BC Valmiera Rujiena

Varis Krumins, Head Coach, BC Valmiera Rujiiena:

"We got a very young team and we prefer tp play very fast basketball. This helps us usually. Today, Avtotor was much better then us and they could have won this match with a big advantage. Luckily - for us - they started to show a more relaxed game in the third quarter. And I'm thankful to my players that they took the chance to reach the result that we needed in this game."

Vladimir Rodionov, Head Coach, BC Avtodor:

"When our lead became very big I decided to give a chance to my young players. Unfortunately they did not fulfill my expectations. If we continued to play with more experienced players we could have won with a bigger advantage!"
