Galatasaray Medical Park head coach Ceyhun Yıldızoğlu
"First of all i want to congratulate Rivas. They played really good today. They started strong and played smarter than us. We couldn't play all-around basketball tonight, especially transition offence was bad for us. Defensively we tried a lot of things but couldn't get what we want. I think they deserved this win."
Galatasaray center Tina Charles
"They played hard on every possession and were relentless on the boards. They definitely went after it, played collectively as a team. They seemed very disciplined and deserved to win."
