Bob Gonnen, head coach of the Allianz Swans Gmunden :"We are a small club and two-thirds of our players are local players. We didn't expect to go this far, so it is an honour for us to be in this round. Badalona is one of the top European teams, they are the big favorite, but we're going to fight like hell and do the best we can."
Allianz Swans Gmunden representative Katharina Wiesenberg:"We think that we are very lucky to reach the ULEB Cup elimination rounds. We didn't expect it, so we are pleased with any opponent we could face. We are more than happy to play against DKV Joventut. We feel like we are representing Austrian basketball in Europe right now. The whole Austrian League support us, as this is very important for Austrian basketball. Even a small country like us that reach far in such a big competition. We didn't expect it but showed we can fight. We played with heart and that's how we made it."
