Krasnye Krylia head coach Sergei Bazarevich
" We started very aggressive, the way we wanted. In the first half we played well enough, thus getting that advantage. Wilson came out very useful. In the second half there was a number of wrong decisions, which disappointed me. To play well there should be correct decisions. That concerns greatly the young players."
Bonn head coach Michael Koch
"We didn’t start good in the first half. After halftime we began playing better. I congratulate Krasnye Krylia to a well-deserved win. We will try to improve and play better in the second game."
Bonn guard Andrej Mangold
"I congratulate our opponent to the win, Krasnye Krylia played better. But we missed two of our key players, who got injured and could not help us today in Samara. We have some young players who are not experienced enough at this level."
Krasnye Krylia center Yuri Vasiliev
"We motivate ourselves in a different way when it is a EuroChallenge game coming, as we want to reach the ultimate goal in this tournament. We started the game well, played good on offense, had a number of fast breaks. All that gave us an advantage to achieve the victory. It is very important to win the first game in a series, but there is one more ahead of us, and we should maintain our concentration and focus."
