Nadezhda head coach Alexander Kovalev:
"It was a hard game and I am really happy to have won it. We have been on a long tour - for two weeks. Of course all the players got tired and also there were some traumas. We didn't have enough energy for the last two periods - it was the fatigue that we got in our away matches. Fortunately we have won. My congratulations to all players and fans of our team!"
Nadezhda player Renee Montgomery:
"We knew that it would be a hard game. After four difficult away games it isn't quite easy to find enough energy. Our opponent today is the leader in the group, so we knew that it must be a tough game for our team. That's why we focused all our energy and emotions on one thing - we really needed this victory."
Famila Schio head coach Maurizio Lasi:
"It was very pleasant to see Nadezhda's coach in a good shape! And unfortunately for us to see his team in a good shape, too. We didn't do what we were expected to do, but I have no complaints - the team gave all their energy and power in the match. My congratulations to Nadezhda, the coaches and fans on the victory!"
Famila Schio player Jantel Lavender:
"Orenburg has got a very strong team. They demonstrated it in the very first part of the game. We tried to gain Nadezhda's score but didn't succeed. We had many turnovers and we missed the basket many times in the crucial moments of the game."
