Brose Baskets Bamberg
"I congratulate Ankara. They shot the ball incredible well tonight. We have not played a team this season that shot the ball so well. I thought we got in the game in both halfs very well with competitive defense but we have to compete with a consistency. We showed science tonight but it certainly wasn't enough. That’s a tough one to lose."
SUNTER, ERCUMENT
Aykon TED Ankara Kolejliler
"I think it's a great game for our club. We come from second division of Turkish league, we made the playoffs, we finished in seventh position and it`s our first Eurocup campaign for many years. It's an old Basketball Club of Ankara but we were in second league for many years and it's great for us to be here. In Turkey we are doing good in the League and it's important to win against a team like Bamberg here and in Ankara, because you know Brose Baskets won against Efes two times and I think every player of Efes is like our entire budget. Some of the players are even two time our budget. To beat a team like this makes me proud of my players. We did a very good job in the Eurocup because we were in the regular season in the last position, then we beat five in a row. In second round we win three of our four games so far. It's important for us in our first year to go to the next round."

"We beat a good team, Brose Baskets is a good team, they have a lot of good shooters. We were able to come back here in a hostile environment – they have a great fanbase – and we were able to play our game. We made shots and tried to defend in the best possible way and came away with a victory. The key for our win was to stay mentally tough. Brose came out of halftime and pressed. We turned the ball over a few times, but did not get down ourselves and stayed positive, which had a positive outcome."
