Quotes BCM Gravelines vs. Apollon

11.12.2012

Apollon Limassol player Diego Kapelan
"We were undersized tonight. Key players were hurt and didn’t play. We lost some points on the rebounds. I’m proud of my team for our last EuroChallenge game of the season, how we fought, giving one hundred percent of ourselves."

BCM Gravelines Dunkerque player David Noel
"An important win for us! We needed to come out.  It was an opportunity for us to play with determination. Playing together as a team with a lot of collective efforts. The first round, you got to go through it. At the same time, we have a long way to go. We need to stay healthy and to play better basketball."

Apollon head coach Chris Chougaz
"It was a very difficult game for us. We had a lot of problems. Brandon Brown didn’t play.  And we had the same problem with Jefferson. We played without three players. We had problems with the rebound and in the paint. In the second half, it wasn’t easy for us to follow the French team. We wish good luck for the French team in this competition!"

BCM haed coach Christian Monschau
"We wanted to finish in first place. But our new group in the Last 16 is very difficult. We played tonight against a team which had won against us in the first game, in Limassol. And tonight, despite some injured players, this team played with a lot of courage. We have managed to preserve Cyril Akpomedah, who didn’t play."
