Quotes Good Angels Kosice vs. Uniqa Euroleasing Sopron

31.10.2012

Norbert Székely, UE Sopron coach:
"I think it was a very good game, because both teams tried to play offensive basketball mainly in the first half, when it was very attractive for spectators. We knew that it wasn't within our strengths to score a hundred points, so during the half time break we said to our players that we had to concentrate on defense. Due to the physical aspect of the game we started to lose pace and our starting five got tired. I have to congratulate Košice and I hope they will be in the Final 8, but I also hope they will lose their game in Sopron."
 

Maroš Kováčik, Good Angels coach:
"For me it's a first victory and I really appreciate that, but to be honest I am feeling a bit confused and disenchanted. Whether we like it or not we have underestimated our opponent at the beginning and we granted them space for open shots what they managed to use and score points. They were like rolling stones and we were happy for the half time whistle. We had managed to score 46 point, but we shouldn't get 50 points against on home court - no way! I am satisfied that the girls listened to my words and I'm especially satisfied with our third quarter when we let only 9 points. We are expecting more difficult away games, and if we play in the first halves in defense like[we did]  today, we could regret it."

Jelena Milovanović, UE Sopron:
"We had a chance to win today, but we didn't use it. We have to work on ourselves to get better by each game and I hope we can fix our mistakes; that will help us to play good games and reach some more wins, what means progressing into the next round."

Miljana Bojović, Good Angels:
"The most important is our victory, but we didn't start in the way we wanted and our next fault was that we didn't follow our coachs' instructions. We didn't manage to stop their main players and to play one on one defense so we worked on that a lot. On the positive side is that we started the second half more concentrated on defense, which eventually led us to victory. Offensively we were good, we scored 50 points, but in the first half main problem was defense. I think our team has strong potential so if we work hard and listen to the coach the good results will come."
