Quotes UMMC Ekaterinburg vs. Ros Casares

25.01.2012

Ros Casares Head Coach Roberto Iniguez
"I am lucky to have my team, today it demonstrated great game of high level. We were strong on defense and in one on one plays. Ekaterinburg is a strong team and it was a good test for us. We could play with no rush to win in every moment."

UMMC Head Coach Algirdas Paulauskas
"It was a bad day for us. We were not strong enough on defense and our opponent got confident enough to be good on offense. Our score percentage was 52% in the first half and lessened to 41% in the second. We could not work out convenient situations and missed our shots. We lost a lot of rebounds and the Spanish team answered with 2 points each with fouls. We also got Anete Jekabsone injured and it caused damage to our team."

Ros Casares player Ann Wauters
"For me personally it is an evening that brought good memories of the time I was playing at UMMC. It was also a good test for us of how we feel in the EuroLeague Women. UMMC is one of the best EuroLeague teams. I am happy and proud for our team. But it's only one game, we have another one coming soon. In spite of a few injuries I think UMMC is in good shape and will be able to play better soon."

UMMC player Sue Bird
"Obviously the game tonight was not what we expected. Still we must give a lot of credit to Ros Casares who demonstrated a good game and full of talents. On the other hand, our team couldn't get the game rhythm and the result must be a sort of wake-up call to make the necessary changes. UMMC is a strong team and we have a couple of months to make improvements, whatever it takes."
