"For us it has been a difficult game because of the long trip. I'm very satisfied that we clinced the first position in this round against a team with an important history like Scavolini. I'm confident that we will meet again in the final four."
Samara player Ralph Biggs:
"Scavolini played a better game than ours but we are satisfied we kept the difference in points and the first position in this round."
Scavolini head coach Luca Dalmonte:
"It was a decent game against a team of good level. Our approach to the game was without big energy especially in difense, but I like the way we turned the game around."
Pesaro player Branko Cvektovic:
"We still had in our mind the match in Bologna. We did not start in the right way but we improved during the game. It would have been important to win by 13 points but we did not make it. Now we are concentrated on the next round."
