Sparta&K M.R Vidoje Head Coach Pokey Chatman
"We knew that the game against Gospic CO would be difficult, for this is a team that likes to play offense and has a lot of pick-and-rolls, but are also dependent on their 3-point shots. In the first part of the game, Gospic CO played well. Later on, they made our job easier by missing a lot of their 3-pt shots. The final result does not show the way the game was played overall, because we came to this large difference in the last two minutes. We watched a lot of games of Gospic so we came well prepared."
Gospic CO Head Coach Stipe Bralić
"It is true that the end result is much higher than the way the game was played on the court. We did our best in all the elements of the game, but we missed a lot of 3-point shots. All together we made 13% of our 3-pt shots and that's not a lot when you're playing against a team like Sparta&K. Sparta&K is one of the best teams in Europe. Even though the opponents were not lucky in their shots, they still won fairly and played very well. We are physically inferior to them and the only way we can play well is to attack with all we've got, but even that wasn't enough."
Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje player Jelena Milovanović
"The more Gospic CO missed their 3-point shots, the easier it was for us to win the game. This team is an excellent team because they like to play offense but they didn't shoot as well as they normally do. I congratulate the Gospic team on a fair game and I wish them much success in their future games."
Gospic CO player Jelena Ivezić
"Our game consists of speed, where our 3-pt shots are dominant but we just weren't able to get these shots today. We have three games left and this team will not give up. We'll play the best we can up until the end. In the last three games we will play to win, but we won't give up hope."
