UMMC head coach Algirdas Paulauskas
"We knew that VICI could make unpleasant surprises for opponents in Kaunas. We did not want to be surprised so we did our homework well. It was a tough game. Because of injuries I had to play only with 8 players. Both teams were good in defense but UMMC is a stronger team at the moment."

UMM center Yelena Leuchanka

VICI-Aistes Kaunas player Vaida Sipaviciute
"We wanted more from this game but made to many mistakes and could not stop their fast brakes. We have to believe in ourselves more like we did against Valencia."

Vici head coach Mantas Sernius
"We are a young team and we are two maybe three years short to reach their level. As a coach I must admit that UMMC is a much superior team than ours. The UMMC players have more experience, they read the game in defense and offence much better than us and they are used to do that at very high level."
