Quotes EWE Baskets Oldenburg vs. Lami-Véd Körmend

21.11.2012

Körmend head coach Tamas Hencsey:
"Tonight we saw a big difference between the two teams. We did not defend that well and offensively we missed too many shots. We also got out-rebounded by 13 rebounds which is way too much. Plus, we also missed 14 free throws. We have a small team this year. That does not make it easier when you play against a team like Oldenburg. But, we can only learn from this experience."

Körmend player Zvonko Buljan:
"We are obviously disappointed with the result. With three losses in the group we will have a hard time qualifying, but we will give it our best. We have more home games coming up, so that might give us a boost in the coming games. Today we trailed for the whole time and it was exhausting that we were never able to make it a close game."

Oldenburg head coach Sebastian Machowski:
"This is the second time for us losing an away game in the Bundesliga and then playing in the EuroChallenge shortly after that. That, again, gave us a chance to prove ourselves. It is nice to win a game like this but there is a difference between playing against Ulm and playing against Körmend. Against Ulm we maybe had the most intense training session of the year. Today, we lost our rhythm offensively a couple of times but we defended very well and got more rebounds than our opponent. Hopefully this win will give us the confidence that we need for our next game against Hagen in the Bundesliga."

Oldenburg player Robin Smeulders:
"This victory is very good for our morale. We have some tough tests coming up in the Bundesliga and we need to build on this victory. We played very good defense and rebounded very well, especially on the offensive boards. It was good to see that everybody got involved today and that we were able to share the minutes between all 11 players."
