COACH QUOTES


Quotes BK Prostejov vs. KRKA

KRKA Novo Mesto Head Coach Aleksandar Džikić:
"Well, Prostějov beat us at home, we will beat them back. It is very simple. It is going to be a very interesting game for a couple of players, we will see. I hope that it is going to be a great match."

Prostejov Head Coach Peter Balint:
"It was one of the better games we have played. We started well today, we scored about first six shots. That helped our confidence a lot and on the other hand, it brought the opponent's confidence down. We knew where the great power of Krka is. In the first half, we succeeded to stop them under the basket. We played well on both sides of the pitch, but especially our three-point shooting was great."
