Valeriy TIKHONENKO, Russia Head Coach
"We played with the great team; Latvia has played very well in this tournament. We made preparations against Jekabsone, Basko, Tamane. Jekabsone scored 23 points but her shooting percentage was low and we did our job."
Ainars ZVIRGZDINS, Latvia Head Coach
"Team Russia played hard and well. Big thanks to the girls, they came back and forced the game into overtime which is great while playing against current European Champions. We are happy for the support like this. We have two more games, we will need more concentration."
