COACH QUOTES


Quotes BLMA vs. Wisla Can-Pack

Wisla Can-Pack Head Coach Jose Hernandez
"We knew that this would be a difficult match, that BLMA would be aggressive in defence and we had some difficulties with that in the first half. We are playing with a lot of confidence now, and have been training and playing very well the last few weeks. We hope to finish in the top two and do as well as the last three seasons."

BLMA Head Coach Valery Demory
"The result of this match was only important if we wanted to finish in the top three of the group. We played against a very strong team, but there were some positive things for us, we held our own against them for a large part of the match."

Wisla Can-Pack player Erin Phillips
"This group is strong, everyone can beat everyone, and even the best teams sometimes lose, that's sport. But that just shows the high level of play in the EuroLeague Women."

BLMA Player Gaelle Skrela
"It's true that we are tired, but it's a shame that we made so many mistakes in the last quarter of the game."
