08.12.2010

Ceyhun Yıldızoğlu, Galatasaray Medical Park coach:
“First of all I would like to congratulate Sparta&K. The fans watched a great game tonight. As you know we didn’t make a good job till now but tonight we gave our hundred percent to win and did our best. We were really good in defence and in offense. When we fight, when we run, we can also beat Halcon Avenida, ZVVZ USK Prague, VICI Aistes Kaunas or any other teams in the EuroLeague Women. This is a big win for us. I’m sure that we will be better after tonight.”

Işıl Alben, Galatasaray Medical Park guard:
“I want to congratulate our opponents for a great basketball night. We talked about winning throughout the week. And at the end of day we are extremely happy to win. I have said that we can win all the games in our home. I believe we proved that tonight.”

Pokey Chatman,  Sparta&K M. R. Vidnoje coach:
“We knew that this game would be tough. We had breakdowns on defence tonight but they also had some players who made the big shots in the final minutes. My former players Sylvia [Fowles] and Seimone [Augustus] didn’t have a good game in Moscow but I think they are the leaders of this team. We knew that they can come up and lead their team. Sylvia did a good job on points, rebounds and blocks with her limited minutes. And Seimone is one of the top players in the world. She understands the game. She understands how to win the game.”

Anete Jekabsone-Zogota, Sparta&K M. R. Vidnoje guard:
“We knew that this game would be hard. The coach told us the facts. It wouldn’t be the same game like in Moscow. Hodges scored a lot of points tonight. We knew that she can score but we didn’t expect that performance. We did some small mistakes in the final minutes. And we lost.”
