Head Coaches

MATIC, VESELIN
BC Kalev/Cramo
"They tried to play zone and surprise us. In the first half, they also played zone and we didn’t have turnovers. Our passer only had 2 turnovers, but in the second half, we were scared to continue shooting. Against the zone, if you are free, you have to shoot and believe you will score. In any case we have to learn that in the ULEB Cup we play against top teams. I think that if we can get two more wins we have a chance for the next round."
BARATET, YVES
Asvel Basket
"It was an important game to win tonight. We were playing against a quality team who beat us at home. We had to win to stay on top of the ULEB Cup. I'm very satisfied with the win."

Players

KANGUR, KRISTJAN
BC Kalev/Cramo
"I don't have much to say. We were in trouble with their zone defense today. We took too many 3-point shots and none of our plays didn't really come out as supposed to."
TROUTMAN, CHEVON
Asvel Basket
"We did exactly what we had to do. We overcame lot of things, such as a difficult travelling here. I'm glad we won."
