Quotes Rivas Ecopolis vs Bourges Basket

09.01.2013

Miguel Méndez, Rivas Ecópolis Coach:

"It's an important win for us because we are closer to earn a good berth in the play-offs. Our players showed a good mentality in this game, they knew how to be patient. And I'm also happy because we won without playing brilliantly, I think it's important to show that we can also win when we don't excel in our play. Given the lack of brilliance, our players had a lot of heart to get the win against a great team."

Oleksandra Kurasova, Rivas Ecópolis:

"I'm proud of my team-mates and of my team, we all had a big effort in this game, I want to congratulate them all because they all helped. I think that we played good on the fast-break, we had to step up our physical side. And luckily, we hit some important shots inn the last minutes. This win is going to be important for our confidence as a team."

Valerie Garnier, Bourges Basket Coach:

"We lost against a team with very good players, tonight Kurasova made the big difference. She drilled some important three-pointers and did some good work on the inside. We were out-rebounded in the first half, and improved in the second, but it's  difficult to win when you have so many turnovers."

Celine Dumerc, Bourges Basket:

"Turnovers were our big problem, because against a team like Rivas, they mean that they will secure two points on the fast-break; it was a gift for them. But we were able to come back, the game was close in the end. It's never easy playing here, but we never gave up, though missing in some situations in the end took the victory away from us."
