Quotes TTT Riga vs MKB Euroleasing

28.11.2007

Ainars Cukste, coach, TTT Riga:

"We didn`t start as we planned. We wanted to save Ieva Tare, that's why she was kept out of the starting five. So we started with Krumina. But the changes affected us negatively. The second quarter was more successful, many thanks to the team for not letting go and keeping on fighting. In the last three quarters we played as we hoped to. We will no stop at two victories, but our next games will be difficult.  The Game against Napoli could be a decisive one, as everyone plays well at home."

Iciss Tillis, player TTT Riga:

"We came out really slow, it took us a while to get into our game. We changed our defense, got a lot of rebounds and secured our lead."

Norbert Szekely, coach, MKB Euroleasing:

"Congratulations to Riga. The difference betwen the teams was in the rebounds, as we collected 13 less than our opponents. We played hard, we played our game, not bad defense, but Riga scored a lot of points in the paint and we lost."

Oleksandra Gorbunova, player, MKB Euroleasing:

"We lost the rebounds, I agree. We tried to play aggressively, we tried to provoke our opponents and let them make mistakes. However, we lost too many points because of fouls. We were also shorter than our opponents."
