Nantes Reze Head Coach Laurent Buffard:
"Tonight we had the game in our hands but we gave away the win to Namur. I can't blame my player. With Aminata Diop and Aurélie Bonnan out we have only seven player on our rotation. We lost our lucidity at the end because we were exsausthed. It's not an excuse but it is a reality we have to face. Ibekwe scored 32 points tonight, no one on my team could challenge her tonight. When you can control the inside play, when you can score your shots in the paint, you can't play at this level. Now we have to win against Ankara and Vagos and create the surprise at Namur"
Dexia Head Coach Daniel Goethals:
"My team is young but knows how to play a game with pressure. We have a game plan and when we 're out of the plan our opponents can take advantage. Tonight it appeared to be the same situation. My players didn't respect the plan and Nantes took advantage with Williams. The inside players of Nantes are bigger than ours but my young players stayed strong. We are dangerous at every spot and we can force our opponents to make a choice. Tonight we knew that we have to make a big game to win. The competition will be tough because Nantes can win at Namur."
