Abdou N'dyaye, ESB Lille Metropole coach:
"UMMC is a strong team, they played with a good rhythm and we experienced that tonight. We played well in the first half but the second looked worse. We didn't manage to do anything against Agnieszka Bibrzycka and other good three-point shooters from the Russian team. Their high percentage of three-point shots didn't promote our way of playing and our mood. The players started their personal game and as the result we were down."
Laurent Buffard, UMMC coach:
"Over last 10 days ESB Lille Metropole had three tough matches against Fenerbahce, Bourge and UMMC. They played really good and worked hard. Today the first quarter reminded me of previous games a lot but then we made all the shots."
"I had some concerns because of the absence of Penny Taylor. We also have two new players and they need some time to become a part of the team. However I'm satisfied with their play. On February 12th the team will be completed. Penny Taylor and Deanna Nolan come back and the team will look a lot different."
