Hemofarm Stada
"Like I said many times, we fulfilled our goal reaching the Last 16 in the Eurocup. Each game is a new experience and each win is a new success for this young team. Before the game our only ambition was to give our maximum. After the game I can say that we needed to have won with a bigger difference. We opened the game a little bit weaker, but later my players were really great on defense. We managed to build a huge leading margin because of our three-points shooting and that served us much better than before. It simply was an excellent game."
PESIC, SVETISLAV
Crvena Zvezda
"Hemofarm dominated all the way and in all basketball elements. I am satisfied with the final score because the margin could have been even wider. I think Hemofarm showed tonight that it is the strongest team that we have faced this season so far. We were not able to keep close, but there is another chance to for us next when we play the Eurocup home game against this same Hemofarm. Tonight only Boris Bakic and Vladimir Stimac were in shape for my team."
