"We got into a situation when the game got close in the last two minutes of the game after leading throughout the whole game. Perhaps we were lacking our legs in the closing minutes of the game and we did not show enough poise and experience. It's a really tough way to go out of the competition this way, however, the final score is the fact that can't be changed now. We made crucial mistakes like letting Vrsac have too many uncontested shots down the stretch and paid for it by losing the game."

"This is a really big win for our young team. We had big problems with Nymburk's offensive rebounding in the first half and their successful three-point shooting. We came out to the second half with a lot stronger defense, controlled Nymburk's offensive rebounding and ourselves managed to shoot well from the arc. Nymburk's players got nervous in the last two minutes of the game when the score got tied. Macvan made the last shot that put us to next round."
