Triumph Head Coach Valdemaras Chomicius
"When the game is finished, we have a good result and I am only happy now. We did a good job and we won the game outside and we beat a good team. You know a coach wants better and better. We did a little stop but we normally have a very young team, we have very young players, we have a very good result and at some moments we stopped. Our good players played well and we came back to the game. I want to congratulate the coach and to say we don't have only wins."
ETHA Engomi Head Coach Antonis Constantinides
"We have to congratulate Triumph for their win and coach Chomicius. They deserved the game. To be honest when we managed to reduce the score to nine points I wonder if we deserved to win the game. It was clear which team deserved the game. Although coach Chomicius said that they have a young team, that young team showed us how to play basketball. After six consecutive wins in the Cypriot league and Europe, we selected wrong game to play badly. For the past two years that we are playing in the EuroChallenge this was the worst game we had. We need to concentrate because today we showed very bad signs. We did not have concentration on defence and offence. We had very low percentage on shooting. We had on our side 16% on 3-point shots and our 2-point shots was 36%. We need to study what went wrong although we don't have many days on our next local league game."
Triumph player Jerry Jefferson
"We played very well today. We straggled in the Russian league. We came here to win the game. We had a very tough game. We saw their game against Spartak St. Peterburg, and we saw how good they are. We played very well on defence and that is why we won."
Etha Engomi player Valdas Dabkus
"We had a very difficult game, we had the worst game in our season, offensively and defensively. We lost the game because we did not follow our coach's instructions. Congratulations to Triumph."
