Pokey Chatman, Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje coach:
"We had a great defensive effort and we kept the top scoring EuroLeague [Women] team almost 20 points below their season's average. We respected them but never feared them."
Irina Osipova, Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje player:
"We felt that we had to qualify to this year's Final Four. We owed it to ourselves, our organization, to the [Moscow Region] Governor but most of all to Shabtai. We felt his presence throughout the game."
Laszlo Ratgeber, Fenerbahce coach:
"Congratulations to Spartak. Today we needed points but we did not have enough inspired and mentally strong players."
