Horizont Head Coach Anatoli Buyalski
"The game was hard, physical and intense. The pressure of playing at home was us through all of the game. Tarsus did not want to give up, even when 20 points down and made a huge comeback. But we did not fall and with discipline and a great team game were able to end the game on top."
Tarsus Head Coach Olcay Orak
"We knew it was going to be the hardest game in our group. We wanted to use home court advantage but we could not. We started the game really bad but we did not give up. We hustled good at the end but it was not enough to win. We got our lesson and now we look ahead."
Horizont Player Tatyana Troina
"It was a hard game in front of their fans. We played with a very high percentage of shooting outside. We used their weaknesses to our advantage and won the game."
Tarsus Player DeLisha Milton-Jones
"We just missed an opportunity to finish the first round unbeatable. We made too many turnovers. Those were easy lay ups for the other team. There was also no team defence on the court tonight. So the result is not a suprise."
