COACH QUOTES


Quotes EiffelTowers Den Bosch vs. Strasbourg IG

Strasbourg forward Tremmell Darden:
"Compliments to my young team mates. We've been struggling in the league, but prepared well mentally tonight."

Strasboug head coach Frederic Sarre:
"We knew we had a fight on our hands against a team that got a good result against Khimik. We executed well offensively and a 50 percent three point percentage is excellent. We found the open guy very well."

EiffelTowers head coach Don Beck:
"I am upset with our defensive performance. I'm extremely frustrated with the way we played. Our trademark is defense, but we failed in that area. I'm not happy. I'm still confident we can do well in Europe, but we'll have to work on rebounding and defense."

Eiffel Towers forward Stefan Wessels:
"We executed well offensively, but this is a tough loss."
