FMP head coach Bosko Djokic:
"Congratulations to Göttingen and Coach Patrick. The home crowd here was excellent. It was nice to play this game here. We had our chances to win this game, especially at the end of the game. But we missed some open shots and missed some free throws. The main thing for us was defensive rebounding. Especially No 21 Boone had to a lot of offensive rebounds. We hope to be here (at Göttingen) next Wednesday again."
FMP player Nemanja Protic:
"It was a difficult game for us. We were holding on for 34 minutes but we couldn't get the win. We have no time to cry and prepare to play on Thursday."
BG Göttingen head coach John Patrick:
"It was the anticipated intense game. It was really a playoff atmosphere throughout the game and the arena. The atmosphere was really fantastic. I am very happy that so many supporters came to this game. They really made the difference. We had some bad luck in offense but we did not quit. Taylor Rochestie took things over in the second half. I am happy that we got this win against a top European basketball club even with three players out with injuries."
BG Göttingen guard Taylor Rochestie:
"We knew it would be a tough game. We had to win this by any means. We rallied together really good, helped each other out and we were able to get the win. Now we have to get ready for game 2 on Thursday."
