COACH QUOTES


Quotes Tarbes GB vs. Fenerbahce

Fenerbahce Head Coach George Dikeoulakos
"We play better and better, we were not happy with the players early in the game."

Tarbes Head Coach Pascal Pisan
"Yilmaz is the best pivot in Europe. It has come to get her out in 2nd quarter time. Fenerbahce had a very strong rhythm and we have not been dangerous from outside."

Fenerbahce player Zane Tamane
"Tarbes is a good team, it is beaten, we want to win the EuroLeague Women."

Tarbes player Ana Cata-Chitiga
"Fenerbahce was stronger than we were, it was very difficult to take rebounds. I think we need to work more."
