Miguel Méndez (Rivas Ecópolis coach):
"We played against one of the European powerhouses, and everything went perfect. At home, with our fans, we can dream for more games like this one. Our players put some tremendous effort on the court, suffering and playing like we planned. We know that having less players, we have to play at a slow tempo, and that's how we got a great win against a team like Sparta&K. The key was our players mentality."
Asjha Jones(Rivas Ecópolis):
"We played a big game, doing a great job. We played with a lot of patience, never got upsed when they opened a gap in the score. We stayed focused throughout the game. The key was on keeping focused at the end of the game, although we were exhausted."
Pokey Chatman (Sparta&K Moscow Region coach):
"Rivas played a big game, doing a good job, they never got upset and mantained their focus. I see two key aspects [to their victory], one of them was their dominance on the offensive boards. And we lost 19 balls, we can shoot at 50% like we did, but when you lose so many balls, it's difficult to win."
Seimone Augustus (Sparta&K Moscow Region):
"These things happen sometimes. We know coming here that it would be a tough game and we would have some difficult moments, but for us it's just one lost game. Now we have to think about the next one, the season is long."
