Coach of Mega Leks Dejan Milojevic said that the Mega played their weakest game in the Champions League:

– Congratulations to the team of Tenerife on win. They have an outstanding season so far, they are second in the domestic championship and first in the group in the Champions League. We played very badly and I can say that this is our the weakest match in the FIBA ​​Champions League. The guests were better in all aspects of the game and that’s why they deserve such a convincing win. It will be very important that as soon forget this match, because we already on Saturday are expecting a very important game in the ABA league against MZT Skopje,

said coach of Mega.

said Grigonis.

The coach of the Spanish team Hesus “Txus” Vidorreta said that his team did a great job in defense:

– We had problems in the first five minutes because of the great aggressiveness of Mega Leks in defense and their good jump. We lost a few balls at the start, but after we gained confidence and played much better. We’ve done a great job in defense and with a good game in attack and excellent percentage of shot, we controled events on the ground. This was a very important win for us, because the first part of the competition we finished in first place in the D group. This victory is very important for us and for the rest of the season where we are expecting more games. We should not forget that the Mega Leks before only 15 days on this same ground beat Strasbourg, and we get convincing victory here, which is another reason for satisfaction,

said Vidorreta
