Krka Head Coach Aleksander Dzikic:
"We had problems with our playmakers. Rojc hasn't practiced for eight days, Armstead is injured and he couldn't help us. So Klobucar had to organise our game and he hasn't done that in years. We won against a very experienced and ambitious team. We started very good but then we lost the pace when we had to change some players. We were also very motivated with their statement that they came to Novo Mesto to win."
Krka Player Smiljan Pavic:
"It was a very tough game. After our big lead in the first quarter we thought that it might be an easy game for us. But they are a very experienced team and they managed to get back. We were almost lost but with team play we managed to achieve an important win."
Ural Ekaterinburg Head Coach Oleg Okulov:
"Krka is a well known team with great traditions. We played good in some moments, but such competition is something new for us. We only played two matches in the qualification last year. Krka was the better team today but we have more games in front of us."
Ural Ekaterinburg Player Alexander Korchagin:
"It was a tough game with a lot of faults. A lot of people came to see the game and support their team. Krka is a good young team, they played good. EuroChallenge just started, we'll try to be better in our next games."
