COACH QUOTES


Quotes EiffelTowers Den Bosch vs. Khimik

Khimik Yuzhny player Darryl Mitchell:
"We had too many turnovers, starting with me. I'm the floor general, I think I had eight. You just cannot win games like that."

Khimik head coach Dmitriy Bazelevsky:
"It was tough. We gave a nervous performance with 22 turnovers. But I have to give EiffelTowers credit for playing well on both sides of the court."

EiffelTowers Den Bosch head coach Don Beck:
"We knew the magnitude of this game, but I was surprised about the way we controlled the game against an excellent team. I am very proud of the way we've held it together, because the injuries we've had recently have hurt us."

EiffelTowers player Dean Oliver:
"I think our bench stepped up tremendously. Marcel Arrts was huge, Djoeni Steenvoorde was huge and so was Stefan Wessels. It shows all our players are eager to play."
