"We reached the end of this stage, managing to finish it in the first place. We won eight games out of ten: what I appreciate the most is that my team always tried to gain a victory, kept fighting and being united till the end, even during both the matches we lost. Tonight we were helped by our fans, in a game that could have been tough. My players knew that this match was very important: winning tonight meant that we may have an easier group in the Last 32. Cibona is a very good team, especially because they work a lot with young players. They have important players like Marin Rozic, who can read the game with intelligence, and Jerel Blassingame, who was insidious for us in the first minutes. Except the first period, we managed to take advantage and to maintain it until the end of the game thanks to a high level of our intensity. Now, we'll wait for the next stage, and we hope to give our supporters another precious gift."
