Head Coaches

MARKOPOULOS, SOULIS
PAOK Thessaloniki
“First of all I would like to thank our fans for the support and congratulate my players for their effort. I think we played our best first half of the season, and now the team can aspire to something better. We got many free shots and layups, we had a good assists/turnovers ratio and that’s what basketball is all about. We need to remain focused and keep working. When there is the right amount of motivation, the players can inspire one another. But we still cannot be predicting qualification. There are still five games to play, all the teams are strong, we need to keep working and trying. "
JOVOVIC, IGOR
Buducnost VOLI Podgorica
"I would like to congratulate our opponent, we did not appear on the court tonight. We were terrible at defense in the first half, we allowed them all the rebounds, we never got to take advantage of fast breaks or easy baskets in the transition and then at five against five we just couldn’t cope. Missing Reyonlds is not an excuse; the rest of the players should have played even harder to cover for his absence. We did not show even 10% of our abilities. PAOK is a great team, they have become fresher than last season with the addition of four Americans, especially Carter who helps a lot with the scoring and creates good situations for them. I think they can move forward. As for our team, we will keep fighting, but things don’t look good for us at the moment."

"I’m really proud of how my team played tonight. It was a team effort, we played great defense, especially in the first half, against a team we have great respect for and that has many offensive weapons which we needed to stop. My teammates helped one another on the court, we covered for each other, got the rebounds, which was an element that hurt us in previous games and now we are focusing on what comes next. It seems that we are probably very close to qualifying, but there are still five more games, we need to keep winning, or else anything can happen. I give credit to the coaching staff, they are doing an excellent job in preparing us with our of video and the right amount of motivation."
