"First of all congratulations to Unics. They played better and deserved to win. It was expected from our side after two emotional and hard game against Fenerbahce and Galatasaray that we were gonna have such a start. But as I said to the players at halftime, it was not a bad result for us. We all agreed that we could still win. But unfortunately we didn’t. We fought and came twice within 2 points, but that moment they made some big shots. They are a good team and are undefeated in the group. We didn’t manage to win. But nothing is lost for us. We have important games in the future. We can move up and qualify in this group."
TRINCHIERI, ANDREA

"Banvit played an unbelievable game against Fenerbahce three days ago. We played our worst game against Tallinn as well. We came here with desire. I think we deserve to win because we controlled the game. We played as a team. We got back on track. İts a long season. There was an amazing environment here and it helped us to stay motivated. We enjoyed playing in front of these fans. "
