Quotes Okapi Aalstar vs Triumph Lyubertsy


Okapi Aalstar coach Brad Dean:
"Congratulations for the Russian team. We could have finished the game with a victory but a few turnovers at the end blocked us. Nevertheless, I'm proud we played such a high level with only 7 players. Qualification for the final 16 is still possible."

Okapi Aalstar player Jorn Steinbach:
"Incredible what happened in the last minute. We had the lead with 82-78 and ball possession. We gave it away. I think the team was too much focussed on winning with 6 points for reaching the first spot in group F. It's an unfortunate defeat."

Triumph player Jerry Jefferson:
"It was a very good game tonight. We came over here to win the game, we played good together in the 2nd half and we didn't defend well in the first half. Aalst has got a tough team with some good players which we respect."
