Abdou N'Diaye (Head Coach, ESB Lille Metropole):
"We were taken by surprise particularly by Thomas' three pointers but we knew how to react quickly tightening our defense and making a smarter one."
"In this competition, it is important that we adjust fast to the way of playing of the other teams and stay lively during forty minutes. That is what we have done and so I am very pleased of the production of my team, we have conceded few points."
"It's a good beginning for us to make confidence for the following matches."
Élodie Bertal (Player, ESB Lille Metropole):
"I agree with Abdou's point of view, despite the video analysis we were taken by surprise but we had a quick reaction to adjust to the other team."
"We were well in the rhythm with a big defense and we came back to our basics in the third quarter to make ourselves respected at home. In the end it was a pretty small result, but I am happy."
