COACH QUOTES


Quotes Spartak Moscow Region vs. Fenerbahce

Spartak Moscow Region - Vidnoje head coach Pokey Chatman:
I would like to congratulate my players and especially Taurasi, who is without doubt the best player in the world and Sylvia who is getting to be the top center in women's basketball. We need to concentrate for the next game since Fenerbache is one of the best teams in Europe

Spartak power forward Janel McCarville:
We did what we had to do to win a very good opponent. Now all we need to do is to execute our game plan in Turkey and reach the Final Four.

Fenerbache head coach Haydar Kemal Atesi:
Congratulations to my players for a great effort but mainly congratulations to Spartak. They are the best team in Europe and the fact that we are not that deep in our bench makes it difficult to win in Russia. Hopefully in Turkey we will do better and force game 3.
