Quotes BG Göttingen vs. Krasnye Krylia

02.03.2010

Mikhail Mikhailov, Krasnye Krylia coach:
"In the stats one can see why we lost this game. We committed 21 turnovers. It is impossible to win with that. I want to say that Göttingen played a good defense and showed good team play. After 25 minutes their full court press produced results. In the third quarter Göttingen made the difference. We had Ernest Bremer injure. He is the leader of our team. Congratulations to the coach of Göttingen and his team for securing the first place in the group."

Valdas Vasylius, Krasnye Krylia player:
Like Coach said we had too many turnovers. Especially in the second half we made some stupid turnovers. They had some easy lay-ups and made three point shots. We were too tired at the end. At that point the game was over for us.

John Patrick, BG Göttingen coach:
"Like Coach Mikhailov said, after 25 minutes our great physical shape became a factor. We played our style today. Every time we played at a fast pace we had a good run. As soon as the pace of the game was slower we had some problems. Especially Marcus Douthit caused some problems for us inside. They had to play without Bremer, our full court press came into full effect after 25 minutes. Taylor Rochestie gave us a huge lift from the bench. He attacked the basket and hit some big three point shots. I want to congratulate my team for reaching the quarter-final."

Taylor Rochestie, BG Göttingen player:
"We were really excited to play this game. We were fully determined to reach the quarter-finals stage in this competition. We prepared well for this game and knew what to expect playing the other team. It was a nice effort tonight. I am glad we got the win."
