Quotes TTT Riga vs MKB Euroleasing
Ainars Cukste, coach, TTT Riga:
„We are not ready as a team yet. Not enough team action, no concentration. The players didn`t feet each other tonight. Carson and Burian have yet to adapt into European basketball. The first one arrived five days ago and she's had six training sessions with the rest of the team, she showed good individual play today but it wasn`t enough time to incorporate her advantages into our team play. It`s a pity to start the tournament with a loss because this game was a very important one."
Ieva Kubliņa, player, TTT Riga:
„We are very disappointed to lose our first game. We didn`t work well in defense, despite having made this our first priority. We committed too many turnovers and we lost the battle for rebounds. We were also unstable tonight."
Norbert Szekely, coach, MKB Euroleasing:
„We played like a team. Many players scored a lot of points. It came in waves but we showed good defense. Our first goal this year is to get into the playoffs. We are a small club, but after this game we'd like to see ourselves finishing third in our group."
Kathleen Macleod, player, MKB Euroleasing:
„We played well as a team, despite having only nine players on the court. We played good defense, got seven more rebounds and it was enough to win."
