COACH QUOTES


Quotes WISLA CAN-PACK KRAKOW vs. GOSPIC CO

Gospic head coach Stipe Bralic
"Congratulations to the home team. In the first quarter my team played very bad. Especially on defense. Next it was better and we even were able in the last quarter to be 6 points up - playing excellent basketball. Wisla Can-Pack came back into the game after a few very stupid turnovers and fighting strong won the game in the last two minutes. Ewelina Kobryn made all her best in the last seconds - she was really great."

Wisla head coach Jose Hernandez
"We started very well but the game it is not the one quarter...but it is important to come back and not to loose the game that did not decide about our position to play offs. We wanted just to win for our fans. Still we are waiting for coming back injured Phillips and Krezel."

Gospic player Iva Badanjak
"Congrats to the home team. After a very bad first quarter we played very well but the home team had more luck to win the game we also had the chance not to loose."

Wisla player Magdalena Leciejewska
"I am happy we won that game for our fans. We must improove our playing till the play offs - but some moments of today's game looked fine. Thanks to our fans for their help:)"
