COACH QUOTES


Quotes Belgacom Liege vs. Telekom Baskets

Tom Johnson, Coach Belgacom Liège :

First, I want to congratulate Bonn for their win tonight. They played with a lot of energy for 40 minutes and they deserve to win. We came up short at the end of the game, maybe because of our small rotation. Bonn made good offensive decisions during the fourth quarter and their aggressive defence forced us to commit many turnovers. Our shooting percentage was also to low tonght. It's a deception of course, but I think we did all we could in this competition.

Michael Koch, Coach Bonn:

It was a tough game tonight. Liège played with high intensity during the first half, especially defensively. We came back thanks to big 3 point shots from Rowland. We are very happy to being qualified for the Quarter Final Round of EuroChallenge.
