Quotes Good Angels Kosice vs. Arras

09.01.2013

Alexandria Quigley, Good Angels
"We knew that it's going to be a tough game because last time we played there it was hard. So we had to play quality in offense and in defense, too. I try to be aggressive in every game and I want to play well - that's all that matters. It is always important to start well after the break so we wanted to do like this also this time."

Cécile Piccin, coach of  Arras
"This game wasn't so important for us because we have to focus on the French championship - we don't want to go down to the Second Division. We are expecting a big game on Saturday; we feel pressure because we lost a game. In Košice it is always tough, but we are happy to be here it is a beautiful city."

Johanne Gomis, Arras
"Košice are a very good team, at home we played a perfect game, but to play away is always harder. They possess quality in each position, for us it was hard to play a game like this. They put a lot of effort in the first quarter and it was tough for us to keep the contact. Our defense didn't work well."

Maroš Kováčik, coach of Good Angels
"We entered the game well and we won the first quarter by 16 points. But, we have to admit that in the second half we lost our rhythm. We played hard games in the Slovak Cup during the weekend so it was demanding for the girls to play another game in such a short time. I know that we could play better. I tried to use the bench, but we are never satisfied. There could be seen some fatigue on our performance. I may say that there is not an easy opponent in EuroLeague  and because of that I am happy we could win this game."
