WIEL, RANDY
EiffelTowers Den Bosch
"This game could have gone either way. I am very proud that EiffelTowers battled. We played pretty good but Kelati and Logan were very good. We kept them short, but that was not enough. Griffin contributed although he had only one practice with our guys. But ULEB is not over, if that's your attitude you might as well not start the journey."
FILIPOVSKI, SASO
PGE Turów Zgorzelec
"Turow started very well, but later on we came in a negative chance with a bad rhythm. We were very nervous, for us it was not a good game but sometimes it's better to play worse and win than playing well and losing."
