Quotes Galatasaray MP vs. Bourges Basket

25.01.2012

Bourges Basket Head Coach Valerie Garnier
"It's very difficult to defend Tina Charles. The problem is Tina Charles for us. When we play against Galatasaray the problem is Tina Charles. If we stop her, then the problem is outside, Taurasi, or tonight Prints. We are better than Galatasaray in some statistics, we got 13 offensive rebounds and 15 assists but we lost by 7 points. We shot 9 times more than them but 10 free throws less than them."

Galatasaray Medical Park Head Coach Ceyhun Yildizoglu
"Before the game we talked about Bourges that we're stronger than them especially inside. We knew that they have a lot of good shooters like Kaltsidou, Joens, Miyem. We stopped them but we couldn't stop their end of switch and post players. They won some points in the paint and from second chances. At the end of the game Penicheiro played really well. Today Diana Taurasi was sick and she couldn't play very well but in clutch time she made a very important three-pointer. We used our experience. We won, we are very happy but you know we lost Alba Torrens, Gulsah Gumusay and last, Saziye ─░vegin. Congratulations to Bourges."

Bourges Basket player Celine Dumerc
"Tonight we came so close but not enough. We made some mistakes against this kind of team. Some details made the difference, like communication in the last minutes, Ticha scored from lay-up. Also Charles was really hard to stop tonight, Prints also."

Galatasaray Medical Park player Isil Alben
"I didn't play very well because of some sickness. Bu today my teammates had some great performances like Ticha, Tina and Prints. Ticha decided the game with her experience in the last minutes and controlled the game. Tina was great in the painted area and Prints showed her scoring potential I think. In every game, we're going to dedicate the win to our lovely friends, Alba and Gulsah."
