21.02.2012

Roanne Head Coach Luka Pavicevic
"Congratulations to Predrag and his team. This could have been the game which decides who advances to the next round. This is a tough loss for me, because we gained control of the game down the stretch. But we also helped Oldenburg to get back into the game by making some bad decisions on both ends of the court."

EWE Baskets Head Coach Predrag Krunic
"I need to pay a compliment to my team. This was a much-needed win for us. We showed some nerves at the beginning of the game and did not move the ball very well. We struggled defensivly. But some good plays and solid defense down the stretch helped us secure this win. We now have the chance to advance to the next round in this competition."

Roanne player Uchenna Nsonwu
"We felt the gravity of this game throughout the match. It was a really intense affair that could have gone either way. We wanted to get the ball inside today and I think for stretches we managed that really well. After this loss we will give it our all against Ventspils and try to qualify for the round of last eight next week."

EWE Baskets player Robert Brown
"After the bad home loss in league play last week we wanted to show the fans and ourselves that we can play 40 minutes of hard defense. Today we were alert, had very good energy and just kept coming back when the game was on the line. If we manage to carry over some of this momentum into the next game we will advance in the Eurochallenge."
