COACH QUOTES


Quotes Georgia vs. Sweden

Kostas Flaverkis (Sweden Head Coach):

"The Georgian national team has huge potential. I think, that Georgians have played today about 20 percent of their potential and they beat us. That was a really tough basketball game. My team played also well and I am rather satisfied of our play. It was the maximum from Sweden, but the strong Georgian team was better. I think, Georgian team deserves to play in A division."

Jason Stodt (Georgia assistant coach):

"Georgia won a very important game. We knew that Sweden has a strong basketball team and they were playing very well. They moved well and scored also well. We had some mistakes and our defense was not as good, as against the Slovak Republic, but finally all team played with big passion and support about 10,000 fan was really incredible and fantastic. Now, we must focus on play-off games at 5 and 9 September."

Zaza Pachulia (Georgia captain):

"I can say that we won most important game of this season. We are now the first team in C group, but to reach this result was really hard. So our dream at this stage becomes reality and we hope that play-off games also will be the same. I would like to say many thanks to thousand of Georgian fans. Their support was really great and helped us very much."
