Triumph Lyubertsy
"Benetton Fribourg showed good play today even without two important players. They were fighting very well up to the end. And even in the end of the game they still had a chance to win. David Esterkamp played well. As for Triumph, I’d divide the game in two parts. In the first one we had good defenses and attacks. The second part was not so good. In general, I am satisfied with the game, but the quality of playing is not high enough for top level teams."
LEYROLLES, DAMIEN
Benetton Fribourg
"We knew that Triumph is a strong team and that we would have a very difficult game even without Vasic and Slokar, who didn't play. We also didn't have two players for this game – one of them had problems with visa and the second one had trauma. And our position in the ULEB cup influenced the game. We tried to do our best and played as we could. But unfortunately we have the result as it is."
