Elan Chalon Head Coach Gregor Beugnot
My compliments to Besiktas who have done what was to do. I am disappointed by some of my players. If you work as hard to make an European final, you have to play like you want to win. I hope this experinece serves us for the future.
Besiktas Head Coach Ergin Ataman
It was very nice to play and win this final against one of the biggest coaches in Europe. Congratulations to my players for making Besiktas history. For me the title came as no surprise. I said before the very first game this season, that it is not only our goal to make it to the final, but also to win it.

It was a very difficult and intense game for us. Besikats started aggressively and got a lot of offensive rebounds. That gave them rhythm and confidence. We weren't able to make stops in the important moments at the end of the game.
I know Chalon very well from my last season. We knew they are a physical team and that they play great as a team. Our goal was to come in early in the game and stay focused. To have won against such a good team makes the victory even sweeter.
