Rivas head coach Miguel Martinez:
"Even though we lost I am happy and proud of my team. I had four players in double digits and that was mainly because they played as a complete team and they played with their heart. The decision making of the last two minutes might have not been the best but that happens many times when you play against a quality team like Sparta&k."
Rivas player Katalin Honti:
"I am sad because we lost but at the same time surely we surprised many people in Europe. Actually we were hoping to surprise them even more with a victory in the home of one of the better teams in Europe. I am very proud of my teammates and I can say that I did my share of this result. I am sure that we will continue playing well."
Sparta&K head coach Pokey Chatman:
"Our target was to keep our opponent to the mid-60s and I can say by keeping a good team as Rivas is to 68 points was a success. What was also important was that our offense worked well and that can be proven on all the open shots my players had. They just did not fall in today. All we have to do is to continue working hard and surely we will see the results of that work."
Sparta&K player Elisa Aguilar:
"I tried to put my emotions on side because after all last year I enjoyed a great year with Rivas. But Sparta&k is now my team and I did my best to help our team win this important game. We played good defense but we surely could have been luckier in offense. But in the last minutes we showed our character and helped maintain first place in our group."
