"I asked to my team to focus on the play in the paint. We had a difficult start but once we came back with a strong showing in ebounding, it allowed us to create opportunities. There are still some issues to fix in our play, but we play well, with a good ability."
Keisha Brown, Bourges Basket:
"It was a very intense game but we played as a team against this very good team of Gyor. We are very happy with this result."
Ákos Füzy, Uni Seat Györ coach:
It was a hard game, we missed some strategic points. It's difficult to win with this shoot ability. I hope wed will improve our play for the next game."
