Wisla Can-Pack Head Coach José Ignacio Hernández
"I was a little concerned on how some players are logging too many minutes due to the big number of games we have to play, especially with Powell and De Mondt. We suffered a bit rebounding in the first half of the game, but then we did better playing from inside to outside. I think we competed at a good level even though the score doesn't affect us in the table."
Rivas Ecópolis Head Coach Miguel Méndez
"We didn't have the pressure of having to qualify for the next round, so we just tried to play good basketball. We did well in the first half of the game, but then Bjelica and Powell hit some shots. Wisla stepped up in the second half, but we were able to set our rhythm again late in the game to secure the win."
Wisla Can-Pack player Anke De Mondt
"We were a bit soft at the beginning of the game, as Rivas were battling a lot for rebounds. Then in the second half we performed way better, but Rivas did also a good work. They have a complete team, well-balanced, and maybe they or Wisla can be among the surprises as the competitions advances."
Rivas Ecópolis player Laura Nicholls
"It's been a long and hard game, Wisla is one of those teams that never give up on games. But we saw ourselves pretty good, playing tough in the decisive part of the game. Maybe the pressure was not the expected one for this last game at home in the first round of this competition."
