COACH QUOTES


Quotes VBM-SGAU vs. Lavezzini Parma

Miodrag Veskovic, coach Lavezzini Basket Parma:
"We had some problems since we were lacking a couple of players that could compete with Samara in the low post. In particular we were missing Dubravka Dacic, our tallest player with 1.98m; she couldn't play because of an injury."

Igor Grudin, coach VBM-SGAU Samara:
"It's hard to comment the game. Parma arrived at 5 AM and lacked 2 players of the starting five. It was a good game but with a lot of mistakes."
