COACH QUOTES


Quotes Fenerbahce vs. Perfumerias Avenida

Fenerbahce head coach George Dikeoulakos

"Our goal was to stop the fast breaks of Avenida by playing logically on offense. We did that from the very start and we won easy."

Fenerbahce guard Birsel Vardarli
"This consistency should continue, the pressure is rising with each game, but as long as we believe in ourselves. I think we should be ok."

Avenida head coach Lucas Mondelo
"Due to the weather conditions we have been very tired from the travel hours, and my team is very tired. They were more rested than we were, so they played better."

Avenida Player Isa Sanchez
"We couldnt start the way we wanted to, they had good fast breaks and easy points, plus we were tired from the plane ride."

Avenida center Lucia Pascua
"We couldnt get focused on the game from the start,and especially against a team like them you should always be focused and aggressive. Since we were a bit tired, because of the delayed plane rides, that affected our game, and energy."
