Giorgos Pantelakis stated: "We knew that it would be a different game than the one we played at home. We had to be more serious in defense. My players did a great job and I have to congratulate them on that and my colleague, Thanos Niklas for the scouting. We controlled the rhythm from the start and we were back to normal. I am very happy with that, we have a game against Lefkada and expect the next opponent in the next Eurocup phase’’.
Anna Niki Stamolamprou mentioned: “We started the game too slowly but we improved our rhythm. Then it was the defense that gave us the energy. It is very important for us to win the game and qualify to the next round. We want to go on at the same pace, improve game by game and hope to go well in the European competition and take a step further’’.
