Apollon head coach Chris Chougaz
"We only had three days of rest since our last game for the local league, and I would like to congratulate my players for the effort. I am proud that I work for this team, as I see that everybody is working real hard. Congratulations to Minsk for the win."
Apollon player Gerald Robinson
"Today the team tried really hard. We fought until the end, but we did not have a clear mind during the last minutes, and that is why we dropped the game."
Minsk head coach Andrei Krivonos
"It was a tiring trip and just for this, I am very happy for managing to beat a very strong team. I would also like to congratulate my players for the effort."
Minsk player Ja Juan Smith
"It was the first of two games that we must win. We did it and we will do our best to qualify to the next round by winning our last game. I must congratulate Apollon as they fought really hard and that they have a very good team."
