Quotes Galatasaray Medical Park vs. VICI Aistes Kaunas
Ceyhun Yıldızoğlu, Galatasaray Medical Park coach:
"We were very strong at the beginning of the game tonight. I think at the end of the first half we showed them how tough we are. We played as a real team. And we can say that the EuroLeague Women season starts right now for us. Maybe Kaunas were not the best team in this group. But as everybody knows they beat Sparta&K two week ago. Of course we still have weaknesses. I hope that we will solve all the problems within two or three weeks. But we played as a real team tonight. And that was important for us."
Yasemen Saylar, Galatasaray Medical Park guard:
"We watched their videos throughout the week. We knew that they were good in hustle play. They have young players and also experienced guards. But our focus was on our playing style. We always want to be better for the next game. Tonight it was a big step for our future in the EuroLeagueWomen competition."
Mantas Sernius, VICI Aistes Kaunas coach:
"We gave up a lot of second chance points. We gave up a lot of threes. They ran and were intensive. We couldn't stop their transition game. And we lost. We have played like a team against Sparta&K, but not tonight. Then we made so many good shots. We had the rhytm! That's why we won that game."
Giedre Paugaite, VICI Aistes Kaunas forward:
"Tonight we didn't get our combinations to work. But this is a very good experience for us, especially for me, playing thirty minutes in the EuroLeague Women - it is so important for the future."
