"We are very happy that we started so well in our first ULEB Cup season. Pau-Orthez is a team with a great basketball history. It was an advantage for us, that Pau-Orthez has some problems in their domestic league, so our nervousness was not so bad. We were very nervous through the first three quarters but then got adjusted to the condition, especially the referees. Darius Hall gave us a lot of energy today, without him we would not have won the game."
