Reggiano Emilia Player Greg Brunner
"We knew we would face a tough playing team. The home team got a good rhythm. We tried to get back into the game but the home team kept their heads. I was very impressed with Chris Owens' game. For a 34-year old player I didn't know that a guy that age can still jump that high. He played very hard but fair."
Reggiano Emilia Head coach Massimiliano Menetti
"I'm disappointed like always after a defeat. First of all I would like to thank the home team's management for great hospitality. Secondly, the home team were better than us for the whole 40 minutes. We are still missing our starting point guard but it wasn't the reason for this loss. The home team were tougher than us. The key fact for the win was details, like Troy Bell's technical foul in the fourth quarter."
Team Teho Sport Players Chris Owens
"It was fun to wrestle with Greg Brunner. He's a very good post player and plays extremely hard. The key fact for our win was rebounds and our toughness."
Team Teho Sport Head Coach Sami Toiviainen
"We had an 11-point lead and then our opponent started to play typical European basketball: they started to play ball inside and scoring from the paint. We managed to find a cure for stopping their scoring. I do agree with my colleague (Menetti) that details made the difference, like Michael Pounds' defence on Bell or Sharaud Curry's leadership against hard defence. Although the star of this game was definitely Chris Owens.
