EUROCHALLENGE

Keravnos head coach Panayiotis Yiannaras

"Congratulations to Krasnye Krylia for their win. We took what we gave and the final score reflects the picture of the game. We knew that if we lose focus, even for a brief moment, Krasnye Krylia would punish us. Although we started really well, we then lost focus, made bad choices, a lot of mistakes and our opponent punished us. Now we need to focus on our home league game on Saturday and then we have two very important away games for EuroChallenge which we have to win if we want to progress to the next round."

Keravnos player Panayiotis Trisokkas

"Congratulations to Krylia for their game and the well deserved win. We started very well and built an early 10-point lead. After that it seems that we stopped playing. Now we have two very important away games and we will do our best to win them both and qualify. We want to apologise to our home fans for the bad performance tonight but we promise to stay focused in the future and win games."

Krasnye Krylia  head coach Sergey Bazarevich

"We are very happy to win here tonight because Keravnos is a very good team coming from two important home wins. Keravnos has good American players and we knew that. We did not start very well but once we improved our defence we were able to come back, balance the game and eventually win with a comfortable margin. For us it was very important to qualify to the last 16 of this competition and I am very happy that we are on track to do that with two games left."

Krasnye Krylia player Aaron Miles

"For us this was a very important win against a very good team. They came out hot and surprised us but we turned up our defence and forced them to make a lot of mistakes. It feels good to win and be able to qualify. Now we have two more games but we feel a lot more relaxed. "
