Quotes CSKA Moscow vs. UMMC Ekaterinburg

26 February 2008

CSKA Moscow coach Gundars Vetra:

"We lost, and it's a bad situation for us. We had to start with a victory at home and we didn't do this. Now we have not so much time for changing our game after tonight's mistakes. Tomorrow we'll leave for Ekaterinburg and we'll make all our best to win there, but it will be very hard."

UMMC Ekaterinburg coach Laurent Bouffard:

"Now we play with a full roster and we practice very good. Today we had a great wish to play an aggressive defense and we did it. We tried to make this half of the way to the Final Four successfully. If we can play in the same way we did today then we'll also win at home."

UMMC Ekaterinburg player Natalya Vodopyanova:

"For most of the game we were losing by a point, but in the last quarter we continued fighting for every ball. CSKA was the favorite in this game and this made us angry.  We fought till the last second and then they relaxed that's why they lost. The game in Ekaterinburg will be very tough."

CSKA Moscow player Ilona Korstin:

"We are very disappointed that we lost our home game. But UMMC is a very strong team and every player in their roster is very dangerous. We didn't play good in defense, and we couldn't stop their centers which were shooting from the line,  it was a kind of surprise for us."
