Quotes ZVVZ USK Prague vs. UMMC Ekaterinburg

09.11.2011

UMMC Ekaterinburg Head Coach Algirdas Paulauskas
"We were relaxed when we didn´t see Delisha Milton-Jones and we started the game slowly. When we playing faster we started resolving the game. It was good for us that Delisha didn't play. But our team had also problems - some players were injured, we were missing Hana Horáková a lot. We are satisfied to have 50 rebounds, even if we were losing in the beginning."

ZVVZ USK Prague Head Coach Lubor Blažek
"We were not successful in shooting in the first half, that's how we lost contact. They were very good in rebounds, it's their strength and they did a couple of fastbreaks and became calmer thanks to it. To concede 31 points in the first half with such a strong team doesn't mean a bad game on defense, however, to score only 19 is not enough. I appreciate we didn´t give up, even if it seemed already decided. I´m glad we fought till the end and finally managed reducing the 25-point deficit to a reasonable result."

UMMC Ekaterinburg player Candace Parker
"We had good defense in the first half and then we were even getting better on offense. It's about getting better in every game and that's what we did."

ZVVZ USK Prague player Ticha Penicheiro
"It was a tough game today. We knew it will be hard, but they are a top team and moreover we were missing Delisha. We were fighting hard, but it wasn´t enough."
