Jean-Marc Jaumin, head coach BC Oostende:
"This was very difficult game for us. We knew Zadar is very offensive team, so that the key of the game is going to be defense. It is difficult to play in Zadar. I was happy for 35 minutes of the game. The last 5 minutes it are a pitty because we lost good result. But, we did what we had to do."
Tihomir Bujan, head coach BC Zadar:
"Oostende is a very good team, so I am not surprised we lost. I was looking for some quality reaction from my players, but I didnt get it. Every time we did some mistake, we fell in the game, and I kept on trying to explain to my players that it is impossible to play without mistakes. The mistake made players nervous and they stop playing. That's a big problem, a matter of psychology. The young players were good, they played just a few minutes but their reaction was good, they were brave, and thats what I am looking at."
