COACH QUOTES


Quotes ASK Riga vs Cajasol

Ramunas Butautas (ASK Riga head coach):

"We didn't play badly but we had too many turnovers. We played good defense against their key players. We also dominated the boards, which certainly was important. 14 points is a good difference but still we will play the second game only to win!"

Ricardo Marsh (ASK Riga forward):

"It was a tough game for 40 minutes. Of course we are satisfied with the win but there is one more game left. It is always more difficult to play away."

Manal Comas (Cajasol head coach):

"ASK had a great game. Their team played on a high level and well organised. My team had a lot of problems early in the game. 14 points is a big difference but the winner will be decided after two games, so we will start to prepare for the second mach."

Warren Carter (Cajasol forward):

"ASK played the whole game with high intensity. We fought hard, but in the end it was a big difference. It will be a very tough game next week in Seville."
