COACH QUOTES


Quotes Ros Casares vs. TTT Riga

Isma Cantó (Head Coach, Ros Casares):

"For the start of the Euroleague Women we have arrived at the point which we wanted. Our players have defended very aggressively for 40 minutes ."

"Gina Palusna has made her debut and she was at a good level. Step by step she will improve with us."

Laia Palau (Player, Ros Casares):

"I think that I have never won for 80 points or less in the Euroleague Women."

Ainars Cukste (Head Coach, TTT Riga):

"It was very hard for us. Ros Casares has a very good roster with ten good players and our team is much younger".

"We will improve in the next game. This one did not show our real level".
