Galatasaray head coach Ekrem Memnum:
"We know that Novi Zagreb has some very good players, and we played very good defense. We are very happy to open this season with the win, as we have a lot of players injured."
Novi Zagreb head coach Vladimir Ivankovic:
"Very tough game for us. On Saturday we played a big game in the Croatian championship, against WBC Gospic. We have some injuries and we couldn't perform as we wanted. We were very impressed with our opponents, but that was normal - it's our first game in the EuroLeague Women. We will be better during the season."
Novi Zagreb player Courtney Vandersloot:
"It was a tough game for us, we must credit Galatasaray. They are a very good basketball team and very experienced in the EuroLeague Women. They started the game tough and we dug ourselves in a hole. Against a team like Galatasaray we have to play our best for 40 minutes, and tonight we didn't do that."
