Latvia Head Coach Ainars Bagatskis:
"Today the more experienced team won. We had some mismatches that we did not use and we should have looked for some open shots in the end of the game. Sometimes we suffer from a lack of game experience, but we are improving every game."
Latvia Player Richards Kuksiks:
"It was a tough game again. We were very close in three games, but we have three losses in a row. Now we just have to prepare for the next game."
Italy Head Coach Simone Pianigiani:
"Latvia's basketball style is very dangerous for us: they are moving a lot, attempting a lot of three point shots. But today we stayed in the game for 40 minutes with good mentality and approach. But I must admit that once again our field goal percentage was not good enough."
Italy Point Guard Daniel Hackett:
"It is a very important win for us. Now we still have a chance to advance. I think in the last quarter our defense really improved and then we relied on Bargnani and post offense."
