Jasmin Repesa, Croatia head-coach:
"I am satisfied with most of the game. We still need to work on defence and the fast breaks. The next game will be different since we will be tired and Austria will be fresh because of their bye in this round."
Roko Leni Ukic, Croatia:
"We played a good game, especially in the second half when we made points from fast breaks."
Laszlo Ratgeber, Hungary head-coach:
"Croatia were fantastic. Our play was confused and if we want to qualify to EuroBasket, we must improve every segment of our play."
Marton Fodor, Hungary:
"We played poorly. We must organize our game better."
