Head Coaches

BERROCAL, JOSEP MARIA
BC Donetsk
"Of course it is very bad that we started the Eurocup with a loss. But we need to stay positive. We started the game very bad, but found the force to come back in the game. The main reason of our loss is too many turnovers in the last minutes of the game when everything was open for both teams.Our players lost concentration and that was the key factor."
PASHUTIN, EVGENY
PBC Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar
"It was hard game and a good fight. The most important for us is getting a good away victory. Our main goal was to stop the main leaders of Donetsk, Ramel Curry and Darius Songaila. With Songaila we succeeded, but we failed to stop Curry, and he made his shots. Also, it was important to keep our rhythm. We are still in the process of building our team chemistry."

LUKASHOV, DENYS
BC Donetsk
"We had some positives in our team's game but still don't have a positive result. Today we made too many mistakes in the last, most important minutes when we made stupid turnovers and could not finish our offenses. That cost us the win."
BARON, JIMMY
PBC Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar
"It was a very hard game for both teams. Our good game oin defense helped us to get this win. Donetsk is very hard opponent with top players like Curry and Songaila. To stop these two was our main aim."
