COACH QUOTES


Quotes Hainaut Basket vs. Kayseri Kaskispor

Kayseri Head Coach Aylan Avci
"I knew it would be an hard game. We are happy to be in the semi-finals, we will play a Turkish team so one Turkish team will be in the final. Our bench made the difference tonight."

Hainaut Head Coach Corinne Bénintendi
"Kayseri have a very good team. The key of the game was the rebounds, Kayseri took 12 defensive rebounds. We were not perfect on defense. It is a pity that we did not win this game, but we have no regrets because Kayseri is better than us."

Kayseri player Latoya Sanders
"Saint-Amand is a good team, but our team's defense was wery good. Now we will play against a team that we know well. It will be again a hard game."
