Wisla Can-Pack head coach Jose Hernandez
"After losing some players to injuries, and especially Beard, we knew we would have a difficult task here in Vidnoje. What made things worse was that Spartak was in a very good day and my players did not play the defence which I know they could and have played. Now we need to concentrate on our home game versus Rivas because it is very important for us."
Wisla Can-Pack player Anke De Mondt
"One of the factors which determined the final result was the injuries of some of our key players. At the same time today we were missing shots just as Spartak was missing shots in Krakow. That is basketball....we tried to fight back but Spartak was having a very good day and when they are so good it is very difficult to defeat them especially at their home."
Sparta&K head coach Pokey Chatman
"We played solid basketball at both ends of the court. At the same time I had the opportunity to give quality time to many players and to better prepare for some upcoming challenging games. We feel that if we can keep teams scoring in the 60s it will be difficult for us to lose. We just have to continued playing team basketball and being focused."
Sparta&K player Candice Dupree
"In my opinion the fact that we played very good defense was the key to defeating Krakow, which we all know is a very good team. At the same time our strong offensive effort helped us reach this desired result. But what I have to point out is that we had a balanced attack and that can be seen by the fact that we had five players scoring double digits."
