"It was a very hard game. Hosts played hard defence. We had our chances, but we should have played smarter at the end of the game."
Slovenia Head Coach Tomo Oresnik
"It was an equal game, we stayed good on the court. We fought till the end. But at the end we didn't have such quality as the hosts. The Bulgarian team is more experienced than us. They hit some hard shots. We tried to do our best, but we made some mistakes. Congratulations to the hosts. Today they were the better team. We must stay concentrated, tomorrow we have another game. We have to win. I think we deserve to leave Bulgaria with at least one win."
Bulgaria Head Coach Georgi Boshkov
"We are really pleased. We won against a very strong team. Last year they were really close to qualifying to EuroBasket Women. We were ahead the whole game. I am very thankful to my team for the heart and strong will, especially on defence. This is our weapon now. Now we have to stay focused for the game on Sunday. I hope we will win this game against Switzerland. They have an experienced team and are very ambitious."
Bulgaria player Milena Tomova
"I am happy that we won this hard game. It is a small step to the final success. I hope we will win first place in this group."
