Quotes Halcon Avenida vs. CSKA Moscow


José Ignacio Hernández, Halcon Avenida Head Coach:

"We are proud of ourselves because we played a great game against one of the two best teams in Europe and in the world.

We have played great defense on Ann Wauters and Maria Stepanova inside, but they have more superstars in Nicole Powell and Becky Hammon. She (Hammon) destroyed us in the end."

Gundars Vetra, CSKA Moscow Head Coach:

"I'm happy that we won. We played against a great team with great fans. This is the best place to play basketball. We had a lot of problems in the first three quarters but Nicole Powell and Becky Hammon came up with big baskets."

Anna Montañana, Halcon Avenida:

"We tried all we could, but they are one of the best teams in the EuroLeague. We are disappointed but we have to remember that we played a great game.

Had we not lost the games against Wisla Can-Pack and JBS Sibenik we could have played against an easier opponent tonight."

Becky Hammon, CSKA Moscow:

"Halcon Avenida is the best team we have played so far this season.

It's true that I'm not the same player that I was last season on this court with Rivas Madrid. I'm playing now for the best team in Europe and here I always have to give my best."
