Quotes Kosice vs. Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje

Sparta&K Moscow Region Head Coach Pokey Chatman
"We knew, that it will be a tough match. We knew, that it will be battle of defense. We played solid defense during the whole game. We are pleased with the win, but now we are looking forward because more difficult matches await our team."

Good Angels Košice Head Coach Štefan Svitek
"It was a very difficult game, a game decided by the individual strength of the opponent's players. Very good game by Augustus and Dupree. It was a game of defense, in which we had a little bit of shooting pitch and at the end we missed these points."

Sparta&K Moscow Region player Candice Dupree
"It was a very good game for us. I thought, we really want to win and we knew, that Good Angels had before this match only one loss and they were on top of the group. This game was not about offense and therefore our good defense was most important.

Good Angels Košice player Danielle McCray
"We tried to play hard together, in the beginning we played as we were supposed to. Sparta&K was a very hard oponent, their players are very versatile, they made very good job on defense, were agressive on the ball and overall they were better tonight."
