Head Coaches

ZAVALIN, SERGIY
Azovmash Mariupol
"About the newcomer Marko Antonievich I can say that will not play in the ULEB cup games yet. He is a very experienced player, with the good school. He possesses all the qualities of a playmaker. We still have very many mistakes in defense, but I can say that today guys tried hard. And their wish for the game prevailed today. There were many failures on which we should work, but there was a wish to play. Concerning Chris Lang, I told him to be more aggressive and to be faster to make decisions. And you saw the results."
PIPAN, ALES
Anwil Wloclawek
"First of all I have to congratulate the home team and its coach for the victory. We played a little bit better than the last two or three games. It is always hard to catch, to reach the home team. But three times we were very close and after we got closer one, two or three points, received easy three-pointers. We came here without two players, the first didn't receive a visa from the Ukrainian embassy, and the second is injured. Anyway, we have to forget immediately this game and start to be thinking about the next game. We’ll not give up till the end of this competition."

"I would like to congratulate the Mariupol team for the win. I'd like to say, that we wanted to win here to take revenge for the loss in Wloclawek. But today we did too many mistakes, plus we weren't sufficient, while Mariupol was playing defense zone, we couldn't make a shot. We look into the future right now and we focus on our next home competition game."
