Quotes ZVVZ USK Prague vs. Galatasaray Medical Park

19.10.2011

Galatasaray Head Coach Ceyhun Yildizoglu:
"We played well only the last quarter. Especially Diana Taurasi made a really good job with her three pointer at the end. We hope that we will play better next time."

ZVVZ USK Prague Head Coach Lubor Blažek:
"We were good on defense, we knew what we want to play and how we can defend the offensive game of Galatasaray. However, we had low percentage in free throws, we missed seven, and we started to be nervous in the end. We realized that we are losing the game that we controlled until some point. And when they led by four pointsat  the end of the game, it was hard to turn the score to our side again. Today´s game had almost the same scenario as the one between Galatasaray MP and Vici Aistes. I think we were able to win today, but we made some mistakes, e.g. when playing forward. However, we will do our best to win the next match in Kaunas."

Galatasaray player Saziye Ivegin:
"We had a bad start, ZVVZ USK did quick transitions, etc. But, as the coach said, we came back into the game in the 4th period and we were able to turn the game to our side."

ZVVZ USK Prague player Ilona Burgrová:
"The last quarter decided the match, we started to vie with them for the lead, they scored a couple of easy baskets, we were not disciplined on offense and that´s why we lost the game. We were dominant most of the game, but we made some turnovers in the middle of the court and then it's hard to defend. Moreover Taurasi was on the scene, she knew what she wanted to play and so her teammates were calmer. We should have stayed focused and kept playing systematically."
