Quotes E.S.O. Lucenec vs. Mlekarna Kunin Novy Jicin
Mlékárna Kunín Head Coach: Zdenek Janík:
"First I would like to express my delight with this win. We expected a different game, but it is a great victory over the oponent in Lucenece. Lucenec BK ESO has got excellent shooters. We all were the witnesses to two different halves. We managed to defend, better than strike and shoot, and finally we beat our opponents."
Marek Andruška, Mlékárna Kunín:
"I think that in the first half we tried to get some information about the oponent, we needed to feel their game. We were tired because of the last days and the journey of course, so in the second half we improved our game."
Ivan Stanišak BK E.S.O Lucenec:
"I would like to express my congratulations to our oponent. It was a very difficult game for us, because out team missed some injured players, so we were pretty tired. We had just one playmaker, but we played very well anyway. It will be a good sports experience to take part in the FIBA Europe Cup. This experience will be very good for our play-offs in the national league. We'll try to learn new things in these games. Good experience for us."
Michal Tarabus BK E.S.O Lucenec:
"I agree with our coach, we played just with one playmaker, and the game in the second half reflected how tired we were for being busy with Slovak Cup and the immediate match in the FIBA Cup. We have to get on with it."
