"We have had a very unlucky season in the ULEB Cup. It's because of our two injured players, who weren't able to play for most of the season. We felt the absence of Baris Ozcan and Jamel Thomas in the big games and were not able to fill their places. In these kinds of strong competitions, you cannot challenge the opponents if you are missing your stars. Tonight, we didn't get good support from our Turkish players on the court. I'm happy about the performance of the American guys, but we have to improve our game with the addition of Turkish guys. I hope we do better in the next years and wish good lucks to Strasbourg SIG."
