Sparta&K head coach Pokey Chatman:
"It was a game of emotion, and we play basketball for this kind of game! I tried to keep
the team concentrated on the game and to keep the emotion out of the game. Bourges played well, and now we will have to focus on the next game."
Sparta&K player Isabelle Yacoubou:
"It was a tough and intense game, some details were changing the end of the game. We
expected Bourges at this level, we are proud to have been able to fight with them but we need to work more and to make the team consistent. But it's always difficult when you don't have the opportunity to prepare for the championship."
Bourges head coach Valerie Garnier:
"After a good adjustment between the players on Monday, I'm happy to see that the players are respecting their commitment. We made a good game with very good statistics and a wonderful arena. But we don't have to forget that when Bourges is playing against Sparta&k, it's a little like Hainaut playing against Bourges."
Bourges player Celine Dumerc:
"I'm not surprised by our reaction after the poor performance against Hainaut this
weekend. I was pretty sure that we would play well. We put a lot of energy and passion in the game but were keeping a good control on our play. I'm very happy for my team."
