Quotes: Nadezhda Orenburg vs. Rivas Ecopolis

22.01.2014

Nadezhda Player Tatiana Burik
"We are happy we won. We are getting prepared thoroughly for each game. Our coach constantly invents something new in defence and we are preparing for games against each of our opponents differently and, of course, based on opponents specifics in offence."

Nadezhda Head Coach George Dikeoulakos
"I'm satisfied with the result and the game of my team. Of course, my players got very tired mentally because we had four tough games in a row. Perhaps, this was the reason that we couldn't stick to our plans, we failed to perform everything we planned, sometimes we were losing concentration and this is especially related to fourth quarter."

Rivas Ecopolis Player Laura Nicholls
"We knew Nadezhda's game, we were getting prepared for it, but we didn't expect such pressure. We won the return game and thought we could make it in Orenburg. Unfortunately, we played today like we played. We have to prepare for other games and learn by our mistakes."

Rivas Ecopolis Head Coach Jose Ignacio Hernandez
"This was a very difficult game for us. We give credit to Nadezhda. We have a rather young team and sometimes it is hard for us to compete with experienced teams both in EuroLeague Women and the national championship. However, I believe, we played a rather good game and managed to play against post players. Since our previous game against Nadezhda in Spain, Nadezhda have become better in defence and it made playing against them much harder."
