Riga Coach - Ramunas BUTAUSTAS
"It was a good game. Cholet is a young team but very talented. The coach is very experienced. The big problem for us was that we were tired from the long trip. In general, French teams play very well, we knew it and we are happy to win the game tonight. The main problem for us was to stop Nando De Colo as he is a very good player. We were afraid the few minutes before the end of the game, as Cholet Basket was close to win this game."
Riga N°10 - Sandis VALTERS
"I am glad to win this game. It is the best lost that we could dream of. We have some problem to stop Vincent Grier but all the team shows caracter. I think we should qualify on the next round."
Cholet Coach - Erman KUNTER
"We do not lose the tie here, but in Riga. Despite the defeat, the most important for us was to win this game at home. We have a young team and players need to be more confident. If we always play like tonight, the team could do something in EuroChallenge. Riga is a very strong team. It is very difficult to play against this team."
Cholet N°9 - Michaël MOKONGO
"We play aggressive tonight. Now we have to be more regular in our game to pretend to more victories. Tonight we were not ready to play hard against Riga and finaly we lost."
