COACH QUOTES


Quotes Avenida vs. Sopron

Sopron Head Coach Norbert Székely
"It was very difficult playing here because Salamanca is the capital of women's basketball. They were a better team and we weren't ready for winning."

Perfumerias Avenida Head Coach Lucas Mondelo
"The important thing is not the result. It is only a consequence of hard work. Anyway, we have to change a lot of things that we are repeating in every game."

Sopron player Olexandra Kurasova
"They were a better team, definitely, and I don´t feel satisfied because we could do it in a different way. They were hard and more powerful."
