"Both teams fought hard. We knew it was gonna be a tough game playing here in Moscow, but we felt like we had been prepared to play as we had a lot of games that prepared us for this against Zalgiris and Lietuvos Rytas in the Lithuanian League. I just feel like tonight we came up a little bit short. We could have done a better job rebounding the ball. That was the main difference. Overall, we are not happy, but we still have a home game and we think we can do better next time. We came here with a lot of confidence. We got some confidence from the wins in our local league and from the EuroCup first round also. If we stay together and do it hard, we can play with anybody."
