13.12.2011

Peter Por - Szolnoki Coach:
"
I am very happy that we were able to beat a very good team like Keravnos away from home and progress in the competition. We improved our game a lot in the second half especially on defense and this shows in the statistics. It was great teamwork during the whole game and my players stayed focused and played tough."

Akos Horvath- Szolnoki Player:
"I am very happy for my team's historical win also for my country as I think that this is the first time a Hungarian team has progressed in any European competition. During the first half Keravnos came out very hard and controlled the game. We kept believing that we could turn the game around and that there is always 1 or 2 players who could do this. The good thing for us is that we found these players and we won the game."

Panayiotis Yiannaras - Keravnos Strovolou Coach:
"Congratulations to Szolnoki. They played better than us and deserved to win. We simply did not play defense neither did we do any of the things we usually do as a team. I believe that our problem was mental and we lacked the focus necessary for such an important game. This is it now and Europe is over for us. We need to talk this over with the team and focus on winning the Local titles."

William Hatcher - Keravnos Strovolou Player:
"Congratulations to Szolnoki for winning the game. They played better than us and deserved to win. The game came down to defense and physical toughness and we lost on both counts. In games of such magnitude you need to be good on both these parameters we simply were not good enough. We need to improve, stay focused and look ahead of us."
