COACH QUOTES


Quotes Slovak Republic vs Romania

Pokey Chatman, Slovak Republic head coach:

"I was quite happy about our outside shooting, especially from the 3-point line. Also our fast breaks were good and we got a lot of open shots. All of the players got their minutes, we've tried small and taller line-up's as well. Everyone scored and that's very good. I would be happy if we would play like this in Croatia."

Lucia Lásková, Slovak Republic forward:

"At the beginning we were trying to find out how to beat our opponent. The Romanian team played zone defense and our shooting percentage was quite good, which obviously helped us. We played well as a taem. Each player knew her role. The biggest difference comparing to the game in France was that we simply made our shots."
