Head Coaches

FISCHER, MATHIAS
Telekom Baskets Bonn
"This was a nice game for all the spectators in attendance. I’m satisfied, especially with our high-shooting percentage from beyond the arc. We had as many as six players scoring in double figures as a sign of a balanced attack. This game came as a result of the last week’s tendencies in both the Eurocup and Beko BBL play."
RUIZ, JOAQUIN
CAI Zaragoza
"We knew the Telekom Dome would be a tough place to play at. Bonn is a great team on offense, which could be seen tonight. For us our defensive strategies did not work the way we planned, nonetheless we fought ourselves into a position to eventually have a chance to win."

Players

CALOIARO, ANGELO
Telekom Baskets Bonn
“We came out strong and had a good rhythm early on. On the other hand we let a couple possessions slip away on defense. Going into the final 3.2 seconds we had several options out of the inbounds play and me attacking the rim was one of them.“
LISCH, KEVIN
CAI Zaragoza
“For most parts of the game, it felt like we were at least 1 point behind. We tried to make couple adjustments on the defensive end after halftime, which did not work out the way we wanted. You have to give credit to Bonn for knocking down both open and decisive shots.“
