BCM Gravelines-Dunkerque head coach Christian Monschau
"It is always important to win your first game on this kind of competition. We had a good intensity during the whole game even if we struggled a bit in the 2nd quarter. Tonight's game allowed us to make some progress and it's always a good thing."
Tsmoki-Minsk head coach Andrei Krivonos
"Our first half was pretty good, with a good balance between inside and outside offense but the loss of John Edwards (ankle injury) was really bad for us. After the break we made too many mistakes, we missed too many shots to stay in the game. I hope we'll do better at home against Nancy."
