Besiktas J.K. head coach, Sandro Orlando:
Our defense decided the game. The zone worked very well. We have made some changes in our team over the last two weeks, and with our new player Hoffman we have a better balance in the team.
I would anyway like to congratulate Telge for their achievements in EuroCup Women. With such a young team appearing internationally, the future for Swedish basketball looks good.
Besiktas J.K. guard, Courtney Vandersloot:
We were not happy with the first two periods, when our oppnonents outpowered us. We made some adjustments in halftime and came out with a better defense and rebounding, which gave us the win.
Telge Basket head coach, Jens Tillman:
I am disappointed, but not heartbroken. We have a young and unexperienced team compared to Besiktas. They have a great squad with many possible line-ups. We are not quite there yet, but this tournament has given us tons of experience, which will help us in the future.
Telge Basket guard, Brittney Thomas:
We played well in the first half, but in second their zone defense gave us problems. Unfortunately we did not find the offensive flow. It was a different game than in Istanbul when we lost in overtime. In that game they played man to man defense which gave us more opportunities to go one on one, which is our strength.
