COACH QUOTES


Quotes BK Ventspils vs. BCM Gravelines Dunkerque

Jonathan Rousselle, player BCM Gravelines Dunkerque:
"This was a quite tough game for us, because we were 6 new players on the court. We had to fight hard and it wasn' t easy. But the game was good and Ventspils are good oponents."

Christian Monschau, head coach BCM Gravelines Dunkerque:
"For us it was not a fight for a result , it wasn' t even a competition. This was a clean game. A game for the sake of playing. Before this game we decided to give a chance for the new players and 4 of our leading pleyers were not playing. I think this was an interesting game for both teams. BK Ventspils are a good team- they are well trained and play good basketball."

Ventspils Head Coach Guntis Endzels:
"I want to congratulate the team. It was obvious that the game was not very crucial. The first half showed that we are ready to play a serious game, however during the game I also felt a lack of serious game. During the game we managed to try out some new combinations on the court; it is hard to judge whether they worked out. I am happy that the French team suffered their first loss in the round because of team Ventspils."
