COACH QUOTES


Quotes BC Triumph vs. BC Kalev Cramo

BC Kalev Head Coach Nenad Vucinic:

"I believe that it should have been a closer result, but we lost by 16 points. I'm not satisfied with the game of my team tonight, but we played hard and at the last seven minutes we lost the initiative and had to be better against the press."

BC Kalev Captain Valmo Krissa:

"We started the game aggressive and fast, and we played with our own rhythm of the game.
But in the second half, especially in the last quarter, we missed a lot of balls and made turnovers, couldn't shoot, because Triumph returned at the end of the game and were very aggressive. I don't know maybe we lost our concentration."

BC Triumph Head Coach Stanislav Eremin:

"We had a problem because Sergeev and Karasev were injured, and Bremer didn't practice for a few days because he was sick. And our opponents was playing good defense, but we returned back with more power and aggression in the second half and made the game."

BC Triumph Guard Fedor Dmitriev:

"I'm satisfied with my game and the game of my team. It's great that we won today, because BC Kalev is a very dangerous team, and we expected a very hard game. They play very equal game with every rival, and John Linehan with Nate Fox I think caused us a lot of problems on the court."
