UMMC Player Sandrine Gruda

"It wasn't an easy game. We have just returned from the Russian Cup finals and it was hard to refocus and concentrate on EuroLeague Women."

UMMC Head Coach Olaf Lange
"We had a very emotional weekend and a really tough time at the Russian Cup final. I was concerned because it is very hard to refocus and I knew that we will face a good physical team and it will be a tough challenge. We had some trouble on defence in the first period, but improved it in the second half and were able to move on."

Good Angels Kosice Player Farhiya Abdi
"It was a hard game. We did well in the first half and were fighting back. But in the second half we didn't play too good. If we might have been able to keep the pace and fight back, everything might have ended in an absolutely different way."

Good Angels Kosice Head Coach Maros Kovacik
"Congratulations to Ekaterinburg. It is hard to play against a team that has great players. We came to Ekaterinburg experiencing troubles with the roster. We had a short bench and only two center players and one of them is very young. We tried to use it as an advantage. The team played great for the first 30 minutes, but the last 3-4 minutes were not so good, we gave up. It is hard to keep the game tempo competing with UMMC. In spite of it I am proud of my team."
