Quotes Head Coaches

GJERGJA, DARIO
Telenet Ostend
"Cibona is a team that deserves a lot of respect. So far their results in the Eurocup don’t show their quality. They have 3 players who used to play for the Croatian national team: Kus, Rozic and Zicic. They also have the biggest Croatian prospect of the last years in Dario Saric who will be a top 5 NBA draft pick next year in my opinion. They also have some very deent foreigners, Blassingame has some European experience and Strawberry is an ex NBA-player. Janning is a NBA prospect. We will have to play an excellent game to be competitive and I hope we will play a better game than our last two games."
SPAHIJA, NEVEN
Cibona Zagreb
“Telenet Ostend is a tough opponent. The fact they played final of the Euroleague qualifications says enough about their quality. They play great basketball. I must repeat what I said before the match against Partizan last week. We have to play the best game of the season. Against Partizan was solid, not great! Now we have to play 20 to 30% better in order to compete with the opponent.”

Players

PETROVIC, VESELIN
Telenet Ostend
"Cibona is a nice team who is coached by a good coach. Their results in Eurocup don’t show their quality so we will have to fight hard and play the right way to protect our home court advantage. With a good mentality we can overcome their experience and talent."
ROZIC, MARIN
Cibona Zagreb
"Telenet Ostend is one of the best teams in the Eurocup. They play very fast, very modern. They are especially strong at home so we are aware that we will play a difficult away game. Few days ago in Belgrade we played a solid game, but we must do better. I believe we are better team and we need a little more to "click." Our true face has not been shown yet."
Telenet Ostend won a late drama, edging Cibona Zagreb 77-75 on Wednesday. Win improves Ostend to 3-1 in a share of the second place in Group A, while Cibona drops to 0-4 in the last place. After Cibona opened the game with 2-15 advantage, the hosts used a huge 26-11 second quarter to hold 41-31 halftime lead. Cibona crawled back in the third quarter, and went ahead 61-64 early in the fourth. However, the hosts answered with a 5-0 run to regain the lead, and managed to preserve it in the closing seconds with free throws from Andrija Stipanovic, Dusan Djordjevic and Ryan Thompson. In the end, Thompson led in victory with 15 points, Djordjevic had 14, while Stipanovic, Jared Berggren and Quentin Serron had 9 apiece. For Cibona, Jerel Blassingame netted 21, Andrija Zizic scored 14, and Dario Saric had 11 points plus 9 rebounds.

Head Coaches

GJERGJA, DARIO
Telenet Ostend
"We have a very young team. Our start of the game was very bad. It seemed like we were afraid of the opponent. Maybe that was my fault, focusing too much on scouting and preparation. When we finally broke back into the game, you could see we started to play. We dominated the second quarter and unfortunately some mistakes in the last minutes of the second quarter prevented us from having a bigger lead at halftime. In the third quarter, Cibona made some tough shots. We should not forget they have great quality in their team. Fortunately we fought back into the game and were able to finish with a win, knowing we were missing three players. I am very emotional to win against the team of my heart."
SPAHIJA, NEVEN
Cibona Zagreb
"I first want to congratulate Ostend with the win. Me, I am disappointed. We started the game very good, but then lost total control in the second quarter. Ostend won the game in this second quarter. It is difficult to understand how one team can show so may ups and downs in one single game. When at the end you see you 18 turnovers, you know it is almost impossible to win in Ostend or any other game."
