19.01.2011

Ceyhun Yıldızoğlu - Galatasaray Medical Park Coach:

"We wanted to win desperately tonight. We all thought that we have to go on with a good performance. I’m happy because my team played as a team throughout the game. On the other hand we didn’t do our best until tonight. We lost some games badly during the group stage. Now we are going to play against a really strong team. And I know that we can be better and better. We became a team too late. We couldn’t have a team chemistry but I'm still optimistic for the Play-Offs. Tonight can be a new start for us. I trust my players.”

Sylvia Fowles - Galatasaray Medical Park Center

"I felt great on the court tonight but my teammates deserve a lot of credit for this. Everybody was focused. We knew that it was a very important game. We had to win and we came out with a win. We were really better on defence and USK Prague had no chance to beat our energy. There are very big teams in the Last 16. Fenerbahçe is one of them. When we last played against Fenerbahçe the game was very very close. Hopefully we are going to be better in the next one.”

Lubor Blazek - ZVVZ USK Prague Coach

"I would like to congratulate Galatasaray Medical Park. They did a really good job tonight. This is basketball."

Katerina Elhotova - ZVVZ USK Prague Guard

"I think it was a very tough game. They were better inside the paint. They had a lot of second chance points. And we couldn’t defend it. After all they were just better.”
