Quotes Rivas Ecópolis vs. Cras Basket Taranto

24 November 2011

Miguel Méndez (Rivas Ecópolis Coach):
"It's been a hard game against a very good team, it was a big win for us, that's my main lecture. It was hard because we did fail to set our rhythm into the game, thet brought a physical play to the game, and we struggle to play under such circumstances. But our virtue was to know where to find our options. This was an important game for the two teams, now we have an option to keep a good position in our group."

Vega Gimeno (Rivas Ecópolis Forward):
"We found the way to play when we lost our 11-point advangage, we knew how to stay calm, and that's where the key to this game was. We knew that the game wasn't already won, so we never lost our focus and were able to play well in the last minutes."

Ricardo Ricchini (Cras Basket Taranto Coach):
"This game had two faces. In the first half, we struggled to play, we faced many difficulties and Rivas Ecópolis got a good start. But then in the second half our team found its rhythm, we showed a better face. Unfortunately for us, they hit their shots in the final minutes to secure their win."

Megan Mahoney (Cras Basket Taranto Forward):
"We knew, comming to this game, that Rivas Ecópolis was a good squad with great chemistry. We fought hard to get to the final minutes with options, but they made great baskets on key plays, grabbed more rebounds, enough for them to secure the game."
