Head Coaches

PANCOTTO, CESARE
Snaidero Udine
"We played a match like last Saturday night against Biella. Very good in the first two quarters and after the halftime we faced a lot of difficulties. It's a not easy period for us and we need this victory because we haven't a lot of time for practicing."
DEDEK, DAVID
Anwil Wloclawek
“In the first half we played bad defense, but in the second half we played better. However, it was very difficult to win because we played without seven players, among which three from the starting five. Snaidero? It’s a good team, one of the favourites of Group B."

Players

WISNIEWSKI, ANDREW
Snaidero Udine
“It was very important to win for us after the defeat against Biella in the Italian championship. We played a good game with strength. We did a very good defense. We must always play this way."
JAHOVICS, GATIS
Anwil Wloclawek
"At the beginning we didn’t believe in the win and Snaidero took the advantage. In the second half, we played with energy, power and we were aggressive and we recovered the gap. But it wasn’t enough."
