COACH QUOTES


Quotes Bourges Basket vs. MiZo Pécs 2010

Pierre Vincent, coach Bourges Basket:
"It's always difficult to play against Pecs, but here, at home, it's a different thing. Pecs defended hard but the referees whistled few fouls. We played good defense on Ivanyi to avoid [her shooting for] three points.Players respected all what I asked [them to do]. We played clean with a very tactical defense."

Ákos Füzy, coach MiZo Pécs 2010:
"In the first half, we had a lot of fouls, we lost on that. It was one of the key [stats] of the game. Bourges system tonight was to mainly defend against three player of Pecs and it worked. Bourges defended well and did not let us play our offensive basketball. This year we have a lot of new and young players and it's easier to play at home. They don't have the same feeling in away games. We hope our injured players will come back in time to helps us to reach the quarter-finals."
