Quotes Beretta-Famila vs. Wisla Can-Pack

01.04.2012

Beretta-Famila Schio head coach Maurizio Lasi
"We finished at 7th place but that is not a big deal. Because we played 3 tight games and we were so close to win at least one of these games for sure. We know that we had the chance but couldn't keep it. We were unlucky. On the other hand to stay in the game for three matches and finish 7th is a good thing. Because it was a tournament that we shot really badly from three point range. Today I am happy for the girls for we will return to the Italian playoffs with a win. Thanks to the organisation and also thanks to the players, coaches and the referees. It has been a really nice and very fair tournament, especially on the court."

Schio point guard Liron Cohen
"As far as the tournament goes, I have to say it was a long week. I think it was difficult for all teams to play so many games in such a short time. Our aim was not 7th or 8th place but this is the situation. But I believe every team tries to play strong and finish in a respectful way. We fought hard today because that is the only way against Jose's (Hernandez) teams where ever he goes. He told me not to shoot but I had to in the end and we won. It is always great to be at the top level of European basketball. Hope we do best."

Wisla Can-Pack head coach Jose Hernandez
"Congratulations to Maurizio Lasi. It was very important for us to beat Schio and finish the tournament with a win. But we played badly in the first half. I think they were more aggressive and much better in the paint. On the second half we played better defensively and offensively. But at the last moment Lorin (Cohen) made some crucial shots and they grabbed very important offensive rebounds. That was the key for Schio to win the game."

Wisla center Petra Ujhelyi
"We are obviously disappointed to finish 8th at the end. It has been a long week and if we were luckier against Sparta&K or Ektarerinburg, we could have finished higher in the rankings. But you know this is basketball. I feel like we fought hard as a team throughout the whole tournament. We fell behind at the beginning today and we had to come from behind for pretty much 36-37 minutes. We made a last run but had trouble to stop Liron (Cohen) at the end. They also outrebounded us by 12. That was a big key to the game."
