Tarbes GB Head Coach Pascal Pisan
"It was very difficult today to play because we were very tired after the long journey and the time difference influenced us badly. Within the last two nights we were sleeping only like 3-4 hours. We had a couple of strong games in the national championship before and were very tired after them and we missed two players too. The Orenburg team started the game with fast running and they scored many 3-pointers in the beginning. We tried alternative plays, played inside and we improved our game but we missed 3-point shots we needed though we didn't even get many chances to make them."
Nadezhda Head Coach Alexander Kovalev
"The start of the game tonight was really good, the team played fast and made their shots. Quickly we took the lead of the game and I'm quite satisfied with the first half of the game. In fact, I believe we won the game in the first two quarters."
Tarbes GB player Charlotte Preiss
"The game today was very hard. We were very tired after travel. Besides, two of our players could not come to the game tonight to help us."
Nadezhda player Oxana Zakalyuzhnaya
"We played good tonight. We tried to run fast and followed all of the coach's instructions. Even when we took the lead of the game we tried not to stop and secure our position."
