COACH QUOTES


Quotes Ros Casares vs. ZVVZ USK Prague

Isma Cantó (Ciudad Ros Casares)

"This was an important victory because we need to win at home. We had 20 bad minutes and 20 good minutes, but the games have 40 minutes. Our bench improved our level during the third quarter and we arrived to the final moments with more energy than USK Prague"

Lubor Blazek (USK Prague)

"For us is not too much important to loose in Valencia because we need to win another games. I'm happy with our firsts 25 minutes, but after we couldn't stop the spanish team. The offensive rebounds were very important. Ivana Vecerova, who captured 8 offensive rebounds, was the best local player"
