Quotes TTT Riga vs. Good Angels Kosice
Charde Houston, Good Angels Kosice player:
"I am satisfied with the outcome of the game, because the whole team played well. This is a massive win for us, we still had our first game (the loss in Taranto) in our minds. And we got momentum from our first home win against USO Mondeville. Once we come together and play hard, we can show some really good basketball."Stefan Svitek, Good Angels Kosice Head Coach:
"We started the game well with a lot of effort, lot of intensity. We dictated the tempo and played our transition game. After the first quarter we were able to control the game and achieve our goals. When we had the opportunity we played transitional offense and we tried to be patient in our offense, and play longer and run the shot-clock down. The home team had their momentum in the game, especially in the beginning of the third quarter but we made sure it was short and found our way back into the game."Kristine Karklina, TTT Riga player:
"Our opponents played very well in the first quarter, unlike us. Maybe we didn`t have enough confidence in the start, I don`t know. We didn`t reduce the gap until the end of the first half. We started to play better after the break, both in defense and on the offense end of the court. We didn`t score well in the paint, it`s the same story with our three point shots."Aigars Nerips, TTT Riga Head Coach:
"We tried to contain the leaders of Kosice - Dupree, Zirkova and Houston. We stopped Zirkova and Dupree in the first half but didn`t manage to contain Houston. Three times Kosice escaped from us and three times we closed the gap, however we didn`t succeed in our efforts to find someone to stop Houston."
