Quotes Tartu Rock vs. Gaz Metan Medias

13.11.2012

Gaz Metan Medias player Michael St John
"The game was very up and down and with a lot of emotions. It started pretty even, we were down by half-time so we had to fight our way back to the game. We got a little bit of comfort with the eight point lead, but then we let them back in. Emotions were high and low, but we stuck together to make the plays down the stretch when we needed."

Gaz Metan Medias head coach Marcel Den Tenter
"It was a very tough game today. As both teams scored few points the value of every point was huge. They totally dominated us in offensive rebounding - they had 21 offensive rebounds which is almost to the limit of unbelievable. We knew that this team was very good at offensive rebounds, but we could not do too much about it. I think we compensated with controlling the main players of Tartu. We did not allow them too many easy and open shots. With this we dropped their percentage and we could control the result during the game. I'm very happy that my players understood the effort that is needed for this level."

Tartu University/Rock head coach Gert Kullamäe
"
We were picked apart in the end of third quarter and in the beginning of the fourth with pick-and-roll offence and our defensive game did not hold up. And in some moments our offence did not work as well and became too one-sided. When you look at the numbers it is difficult to understand how we could lose a game where we dominated the boards 42:24, but then again we made 22 turnovers."
