Quotes ZVVZ USK Prague vs. LOTOS PKO BP Gdynia

18.12.2008

Lubor Blazek, coach ZVVZ USK Prague:

"It was a match for third place, it wasn't just about winning, but also about gaining a good position for the play-offs. I'm glad we won, but I had hoped we could win at least by 14 points. We didn't manage that. At the point where we were leading by 17 points and it seemed we could succeed, we made mistakes in our zone defense. We had problem with our physical condition too. In the last two weeks we had many players ill or injured, we started preparing on Monday and that also affected the result. However it's not good to have our last match [in the group] being a decisive match, we should had played with more concentration in Gdynia and not lose in Croatia and France."

Jacek Winnicki, coach Lotos BP PKO Gdynia:
"We accomplished what our goal was, it is a good result. It was a good match except the end of first half and the start of the second one. Being down by 17 points was a disaster, but it's important we regained control. We were able to play smart against zone defense. Congratulations to USK."
