COACH QUOTES


Quotes Lokomotiv Kuban vs. KK Buducnost

Kestutis Kemzura, Lokomotiv Kuban coach:
"I took over as head coach of BC Lokomotiv-Kuban only a few days ago but I see that this team has potential. Of course we must make our team stronger and I'm referring to the point-guard position. We will try to sign a playmaker as soon as possible but it's not easy to find a good player now."

Dejan Radonjic, Buducnost coach:
"I want to congratulate my players. We had a break in the national league but we kept practicing hard and our win today justified that. We played really good defense from the second quarter onwards. I think we won due to this fact."
