EWE Baskets Head Coach Predrag Krunič:
"I expected a good game. Nitra has a good mix of Slovak and foreign players. It won't be easy for any team to win here, but we played good defense and it's always important in the EuroChallenge to win the first game."
Oldenburg Center Adam Chubb:
"We had problems on defense so far this season, so our big focus was to come out and play good defense. Defense must be first and everything will come then."
Nitra Head Coach Ľubomír Urban:
"I would like to congratulate our opponent. The difference was that we didn't rebound the ball very well, especially under our basket. But anyway, we did a good job and played a good game against a very strong team."
Nitra Point Guard Denis Clemente:
"I hate losing, so I am disappointed. We did a pretty good job. We have to prepare for the next games and get better in one week. We couldn't tie the game because we weren't making open shots. The German team played hard for 40 minutes and that's why they take the win. It was first game for everybody (in Nitra), so we have to get used to the level and we will get better."
