Ainars Cukste, coach, TTT Riga:
"We lost to a strong opponent. We had hoped for a more balanced game but not for mercy. Despite the heavy loss we have improved several things and we will continue to work to succeed. Players were a bit afraid in the beginning of the match and it took time to get into the game. The main reason of our defeat was the strong defense of CSKA. Vetra is a smart coach and CSKA succeeded in their effort to neutralise our key players."
Aija Brumermane, player TTT Riga:
"Our defense is not as good yet as it can be. We were also passive in offense. We will concentrate to improve our weak parts. However, we improved our rebounding, we must continue to be better in the same way and it will bring good results."
Gundars Vētra, coach, CSKA Moscow:
"Our roster has more depth in defense this year. We missed some aggressiveness in defense last year. The arrivals of Douglas, McCarville and Gorbunova have already changed our team. We started our preparation with three players in the middle of September, then three Russian Olympians and Kathryn joined us. This was the first game when all our players were available to play. Everything happens „on the road" and we have still to work a lot to become better as a team. Our goals is to get into all possible finals - Russian Cup, Russian Superleague - and to qualify for the EuroLeague Final Four."
Kathryn Douglas, player CSKA Moscow:
"I was one of those lucky WNBA players to join my overseas team already in September. I got time to work with my teammates, my coach to get into rhythm. I am glad to play in CSKA. Obviously, one of our goals is to win the (EuroLeague) title."
