Alain Jardel, Tarbes coach:
“We played really bad basketball today. Looking at the statistics, it was impossible to win the game. We lost 20 offensive rebounds and had 18 turnovers. It is going to be difficult to continue in this competition but there are still three games remaining and everything can happen. The players were nervous; we just didn’t have a good day today.
Florence Lepron, Tarbes player:
“ZVVZ USK were really controlling the rebounds and when you make so many turnovers you can’t win. We had lots of second chances but if you are not in control, you can’t win.”
Lubor Blažek, ZVVZ USK Prague coach:
“As the coach of Tarbes said, they didn’t have their day today. Maybe we have finally shown that we are a better team. We wanted to avenge our loss in Tarbes, which we did. We had bad shooting percentage and Tarbes gave us a hard time in our defensive rebounds.”
Eva Vítečková, ZVVZ USK Prague player:
“From the beginning it was a very nervous game. We knew that we had to win tonight. We are expecting another difficult game next week against Sparta&K and only today´s victory against Tarbes could get us into positive mood for that next game. We bore heavily the loss at Tarbes earlier in the season. In the first quarter we had about 40 shot attempts but we made only about 12. We were nervous or we underestimated the situation. I think we made the difference nearere the end of the game when we started shooting better.”
