Villeneuve d'Ascq head coach Fred Dusart
"When we play in the French league, we have a Malian player named Djene Diawara. because of the rules of FIBA we can't play with her. Tonight it was a problem, especially when Sanni and Messeeman were in foul trouble. We have been dominated in the paint. They played harder than us. Williams didn't shoot well but she was well defended. We let them score too many fastbreaks. When Nantes played the zone defense, the rhythm changed and Nantes took the lead. The qualification? Me, I want to go to the eighth-finals but the answer is in the players' hands. Do they really want it? If we don't go to the next round I think we will blame ourselves for the loss at home versus Pecs."
Nantes Rezé Basket power forward Aurélie Bonnan
"I'm just happy, first for the qualification then to play with those girls. We have an amazing group humanly speaking. When you see Sarah Michel and Caroline Aubert play like tonight when they are injured, when you see Cayla Françis play as well as she played tonight with a few minutes, when you see the little help for the rebound... It's just happiness and that's why I love playing with this team."
Nantes Rezé Basket Head Coach Emmanuel Coeuret
"Villeneuve D'Ascq beat us twice (French league and EuroCup) and in an uncontested way. Tonight we played on the same level and we won. We played hard, we played well. I love this game, when my team can play defence and offence as well. I love to coach this team. When the girls play like tonight it pretty easy to coach. I saw sacrifice, pleasure to play together... I saw a team !"
