COACH QUOTES


Quotes EiffelTowers vs Krasnye Krylia

Don Beck, EiffelTowers Head Coach:

"I'm extremely pleased for the players. This is the strongest outfit we've faced this year. We cut out the turnovers in the second and played very well tonight. We're in a unique situation that we have to play in Europe and compete in a lot of games in Holland. We have little time off. I'm going to enjoy this win with a cold beer, but there's another test on Sunday."

Anthony Richardson, EiffelTowers Forward:

"We have to give coach Beck the credit he deserves. We executed exactly what he told us. We got stops when we needed to. Coach Beck has always told us how important rebounds and defense are. We outrebounded them tonight and then we usually win games."
