"They have young and athletic team," - Lietuvos telekomas coach Algirdas Paulauskas said of Sopron.

"Despite their youth they are quite experienced. Every player is dangerous; they can score from anywhere on the field."

Lietuvos telekomas have one player who knows Hungarian basketball very well. That is Jolanta Vilutyte, she had been playing in Hungary for 13 years. Now she says that Sopron plays fast basketball. "Their main weapon is fast breaks. And the youth is not a problem; Hejkova (Sopron's Head Coach) knows how to work with young players".

"We are looking forward for this game and preparing very seriously. Last week our leaders Jurgita Streimikyte-Virbickiene and Katie Douglas were not able to practice. Let us just hope that these players will be fit for tonight s game," added Paulauskas .
