COACH QUOTES


Quotes BC Triumph vs. Proteas EKA AEL

Miroslav Nikolic, Proteas Head Coach:

"We played against a better team than us today. We did what we could but it was not enough and we deserve the 4th place. My players are very tired now because they did everything they could."

 
Stanislav Eremine, Lyubertsy Head Coach:

"Today we played much better on offence. Proteas gave us a lot of open shots which we could make. We did not come here for this game but on Friday we did not play on the same level as today."

Ernest Bremer, Lyubertsy Player:

"We played a good game. We came out aggressive and were able to keep it up for 40 minutes."
