"We really played good basketball and defended well, especially when it came to the one on one defense, the last 12-15 minutes. It is our mistake that we allowed Sparta&K to take a big lead and we paid for that. Even though we could stolen the game at the end. Now we are looking to a difficult game for the Spanish league."
Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje Head Coach Pokey Chatman
"It is always frustrating as a coach to give up an eighteen point lead especially against a good team like Rivas but it is always important that we, especially our key players, showed character and made some important shots and free throws at the end of the game. We have to continue playing our game and concentrating irregardless of the score."
Rivas Ecopolis player Jelena Dubljevic
"We played a good game only in the second half but because we allowed Sparta&k to take a big lead we lost the game. We had a shot to send the game to overtime but we just where not lucky. We are now going back home with tow road losses but I am sure things we become better soon."
Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje Sonja Petrovic
"We played well in the first half but were bad in the second half and allowed Rivas to come back. You just can not do that against good teams. We have to learn to allow this to happen again. Thankfully we showed character in the last minute and made the shots we had to make."
