Javier Fort, Rivas Ecopolis Head Coach:

"We played well in the first quarter and we had some easy shots. In the second quarter USK was able to score from 3-point distance and they improved their defence and therefore we lost our lead. During the second half we did a very good job on both defence and offence. We played smart and it was effective. I hope both teams are going to move ahead to play-offs."

Lubor Blazek, ZVVZ USK Prague Head Coach:

"My congratulations to Rivas Ecopolis. It's not easy to summarize this match, because I think we were well prepared. I told our team that the first quarter is the key part, as well as it was in the game between Rivas and Gorzow. We lost too much energy when wiping out the opposing team's lead and the rest of the game was easy to predict. There were players who fought, like Lindsay Whalen or Katerina Elhotova, but you have to play in five and fight like a team to play good basketball. Rivas Ecopolis is a good team and a respect their performace. However i think we lightened their position with the first quarter. There is losing and there is losing, but this failure must not happen again."
