Okapi Aalstar head coach Brad Dean:
"I think that the offensive rebounds were the dominating factor in this game. Even at the end they took a very important one that was deciding for winning this game. Due to injuries this wasn't our normal style of playing."
Okapi Aalstar player Noah Hartsock:
"It was a very tough and physical game. We stepped up after a losing streak but it wasn't enough to win this first game in the Last 16. We fought till the last minute but a few mistakes at the end killed us."
Telekom Baskets head coach Michael Koch:
"Tough game with a lot of intensity at both ends of the court. It's a pity; this was not the Aalstar team that we had analysed as they were missing two key players due to injury. At the end of the game we had a little bit more luck than Aalst and took some big shots to win the game."
Telekom Baskets player Jonas Wohlfarth-Bottermann:
"I think it was a great fight and a close game. It was a tough win and we have to focus on the next game against Oldenburg next Wednesday."
