Head Coaches

GIRARD, ERIC
Strasbourg
"We played well most of all offensively but we lacked concentration and then had a good warning. One should not forget that this team has the best offense in the group. Our team enjoyed playing together and gave the show to the audience. Hopefully this success will bring more confidence in the group."
WIEL, RANDY
EiffelTowers Den Bosch
"Strasbourg played very well, they shot really well in the 1st quarter, we played very well then too and we had our chances but we missed it. It was hard against a team on their court and like I said, we had our chance we just couldn’t take it."

Players

GIFFA, SANYA
Strasbourg
"We know it is a good team, they are not first at the rankings with no reason therefore we knew it would be hard. They have 5 or 6 players who scored 8 to 14 points, danger was everywhere. We relied on our speed and shared the ball as people could have seen it on the court."
YOUNG, TRAVIS
EiffelTowers Den Bosch
"Strasbourg was better. Their inside game, with Aaron Pettway was really effective and their guards were really good too. It was a true team win."
