EREMIN, STANISLAV
Triumph Lyubertsy
"This game was very hard and we were waiting for it. For the first half of the game we were searching for the optimal five players, there are several players who played not well. But in the second part of the game we found the optimal five players. Zamanskiy, Slokar, Dmitriev, Vasic, Chatman and Lyday brought the result to us."
RADONJIC, DEJAN
Buducnost
"Triumph is a favorite team in the group and, of course, this team was a favorite in this game. During three quarters we played well but Triumph won in the last period because this team has more experience than we have."
