Lazlo Ratgeber (Spartak coach):
"We won a tough game against one of the top teams in Europe. We now have to continue our hard work so that we may accomplish what we have set from the beginning of the season, which is none other than to defend our title. Once more I have to congratulate my girls for a job well done."
Diana Taurasi (Spartak player):
"We played hard against a worthy opponent. We have to concentrate and prepare for the next game because we know that Ros Casares will again come out hard. I am positive that my teammates, as well as I, will be ready for Game two."
Isma Canto (Ros Casares coach):
"We lost a tough game which might have gone differently. I am confident that we will win Game two and come back to Russia. You have to give credit to Taurasi, Bird and Jackson for a good game."
Amaya Valdemoro (Ros Casares player):
"We played against a very good team and losing by eight points is logical. Now that we saw the game of the Spartak players I am positive that we will win Game two. What was worse today was our stats and especially our three-point shooting."
