Fenerbahce Head Coach George Dikeoulakos
"In the beginning our game was weak, and Nadezhda started the game in a very smart way, they can play as a team very well. Fortunately, we got our emotions during the game, we started to play more brave and aggressive basketball and won in the end."
Nadezhda Head Coach Alexandr Kovalev
"In the third and fourth quarters we didn't score our free throws. The key point in defence was to block big players in the opponent's team and I think we succeeded. But we didn't manage to hold off Angel McCoughtry, letting her score 24 points."
Fenerbahce player Elina Babkina
"It was difficult for us to play in the first half of the match, although in general it was a hard and tough game. We managed to play more actively in the third quarter, we scored 26 points and led the game. But we had to fight up to the end."
Nadezhda player Elena Danilochkina
"The match was really hard. After such games, if you lose, it is really difficult to recover. You saw the match with your own eyes. In the first half we did a lot, we were leading. Unfortunately, we couldn't keep the advantage."
