UMMC forward Crystal Langhorne:
"We played against a strong team, and showed good team work. We played well in defense and stopped the opponents."

UMMC Head Coach Gundars Vetra:
"Along with Fenerbahce, MKB EuroLeasing is one of the three strongest teams in Europe. We played successfully against them, because we fulfilled most of our plans and combinations. Though we've played without Celine Dumerc tonight, we played well in offense. We had a very long and hard away session. Celine was injured in Novosibirsk, she has some problems with her ankle joint, but we hope, she will join us in the game against Fenerbahce. Crystal Langhorne shined tonight, we were right to sign her. She will stay till New Year, then Candace Parker will arrive."

MKB EuroLeasing center Zane Tamane:
"We've played against one of the world's most powerful teams tonight; it's very complicated to stop them, especially on home court. Sometimes we made wrong decisions, but I'm happy, that we didn't capitulate, and tried to fight."

MKB EuroLeasing head coach Norbert Szekely:
"First of all, I want to congratulate UMMC on their win. They have a very good team - one of the strongest in Europe. I'm a great fan of  this team and I'm sure they will reach the Final Four. The teams differ very much in physical strength; they made good assists, after screens and pick-and-rolls. They play very fast basketball; it was very difficult for us to play under the basket."
