CB Taranto Head Coach Roberto Ricchini
"When we were traveling here, we knew we would have a very difficult task. The last minute loss, due to illness, of our starting point guard, combined with the fact that some of our other players are also feeling ill really reduced our chances. We fought one quarter but Sparta&K is too strong, especially at home."
Sparta&K Moscow Region Vidnoje Head Coach Pokey Chatman
"I am very happy with our game especially since our so called ‘reserve' players came and did a great job. It is great that even though our usual top scorers combined for less than 10 points, we beat a good team, which just came off a great victory over Krakow. Now we have to continue working hard."
CB Taranto player Megan Mahoney
"Sparta&K is a very tough team and we played with some energy in the first quarter but after that we just went flat. You have to give credit to Sparta&K for shooting well but we should had tried harder especially since this was our last chance to reach the next round."
Sparta&K Moscow Region Vidnoje player Evgeniya Belyakova
"In the second we got into our game and we followed the coach's instructions to all details. But we cannot really celebrate knowing that Milo got injured and we will miss her some days. But that is the life of a sports person. I hope all will be OK."
