Spartak Player Vladimir Dyachok:
"There are no weak teams in the second round of the tournament. We played good in defence but missed many shoots. Coach toldus that if we couldn't shoot well in this game we had to play more inside and we did so."
Netanya Player Tiny Washam:
"It's a very good experience to play in EuroChallenge. We played with a very good team. I can say also that we played against a great coach. It was a good game. We could came closer to Spartak some times. But we couldn't win."
Netanya Head Coach Arik Elfasi:
"We played with a good team and good coach whose name is known as not in Israel. We played good and we did what we wanted to do before the game. I think two things killed us - our offensive rebounds and our free throws. We did to much misses from the free throw line. And in the end of the game we missed two big shoots. But my team is in good shape now and we continue to work hard."
Spartak Head Coach Zvi Sherf:
"First of all I am glad that we started our European campaign in this year with the victory. We had some trouble before the game. Our point guard Anton Ponkrashov is ill and had fever. And we didn't know before the game if he could play or not. We appreciate that he did in this situation. Not every player can do so. We played very good in defence but not so in offence including our 3-points shots percentage was low. But we won and it was the most important thing now."
