VICI Aistes Head Coach Mantas Sernius
"There are no excuses for us. We did mistakes in defending 1 on 1, let them box us out and we were slow. USK played very well, they were fast and scored a lot of points from fast breaks. Last week we won over Valencia at home, but to play at home is always different. Valencia was surprised, they let us score easy baskets and that gave us energy to win the match. Today we focused mainly on USK's shooters, but they had too many open shots. That was a mistake and it's definitely not a positive result."
ZVVZ USK Prague Head Coach Lubor Blažek
"It was a huge motivation for us to know that VICI Aistes beat Valencia last week. The team was aware of this warning, it strengthened our concentration and we were ready for it. We kept our defensive systems, we put hard effort in defensive rebound and we didn't let them play their game. This decided the match. We put our hearts in the game. Today we played the whole match with huge team spirit."
VICI Aistes player Amanda Kemezys
"It was a tough game today which gave credit for the home team. There‘s no excuse for us. We tried, but we had a lot of turnovers. It was a big learning experience for us."
ZVVZ USK Prague player DeLisha Milton-Jones
"We had a great day today. We were very good in shooting, we were successful in fast breaks and we were able to prepare good shooting positions for ourselves. Today we were also successful in rebounds. During the season we were a bit inconsistent, but such a victory is perfect for team spirit. I hope this could be a start of something special."
