ZZ Leiden forward Seamus Boxley:
"This is a bad loss for us. We played well in the first three quarters but in the last quarter we couldnt do the same thing and we lost the game. I hope we will win the upcoming 2 games and keep our chance to advance from the group."
ZZ Leiden head coach Toon van Helfteren:
"We played good first three quarters in our last game and we lost the game, it happened again. My team's performance is ok for me. Beşiktaş Milangaz was in a bad condition because of two players leaving. We played agaisnt a completely different squad than the team in holland. I wish Beşiktaş success for the future."
Besiktas guard Can Akin:
"We played our first game without Deron and Semih. Eeverybody played good on our team. We are happy for this victory. We want to win all our upcoming games, win the group and go to the next round."
Besiktas head coach Ergin Ataman:
"We are badly effected by the lockout. Today we could not use Deron, Semih and Zoran. We need to finish our transfers and keep going. Because of our missing players Ersin Dağlı played 40 minutes today and he really played well. We won, we keep going."
