COACH QUOTES


Quotes Great Britain vs. Bosnia and Herzegovina

Mark Clark, Coach (Great Britain):

"You have to be pleased with two wins. Lisa Hutchinson had a nice game in front of her home crowd and Harriett Yea did a great job at the three point line. Plus you can't underestimate how Kristy (Lavin) has come back. That's probably the biggest pleasure we have as we weren't sure how she would come back from injury."

Kristy Lavin, Player (Great Britain):

"Two summers ago we would have been happy to have won by 30 but now we have moved on from then and it's not just about the score."

"Bosnia were never a factor for us as the focus has always been about our own performance."

Vesna Bajkusa, Coach (Bosnia and Herzegovina):

"We played well and are improving. I was very happy with Matea Tavic and with our two 16 year olds."

Svjetlana Papcevic, Player (Bosnia and Herzegovina):

"We were happy with the result as we are currently rebuilding our national team. Seven of our players are under 20 and only one plays abroad."
