" Asesoft is a quality team, a quality opponent, and this was a quality game. We had good moments in out game. You can see that Macvan is not yet incorporated into the team, but his contribution and importance is clear. His three-pointer was really, really important, and it gave the team back confidence and motivation. We still have some bad minutes. We easily lost a 10-point advantage in the first half. I want to thank the fans that gave us support. Those are the most loyal fans that are here for us. We are in a quality group in the Eurocup, and there will be a big fight to make it to the Last 32, but we are ready for that fight."

"This was a tough game. Asesoft is built from experienced players who have played on different European teams for many years. I think we fought our way to victory with our energy and help from the fans. Vanja Marinkovic again went „crazy, he was making important baskets and that is what probably decided the game. At the end, we deserved to win, and if we had been a little more clever, the margin could have been even bigger. "
