"Today was one of our best games defensively. I am very pleased with the performance of the youngsters today. They even played better than I expected. The team of Riga is famous for their team defense. As far as I know no team managed to score more than 50 points in the first half of the game. They play very quick basketball. The key to our success tonight was the fact that we played as a team. I am very happy about Dimitar Phillipov and Chavdar Kostov's performance tonight. With that win we proved that we deservedly overplayed Kiev and Pau-Orthez. It was a good game. I would like to thank the supporters and the fans."

"I congratulate their team for the victory. It was a very good game. Lukoil played very quick and good defense. They also were rebounding like real soldiers under the baskets. We didn't play that good defensevely even not the way we were supposed to do it. We couldn't stop their pick and roll plays. My players couldn't show their full and real potential."
