WINNING BATTLE WITH SIENA
"It is a great win against a good team with good quality. Generally speaking the first half was not so pretty. But we used Siena turnovers to get some fastbreak opportunities to get the lead. But it is an experienced team, and they got back into the game and got the lead. We made some adjustments defensively after halftime, started the third quarter better. It was a close game throughout, but we did not expect it to be any different. We made some plays, and one of the more important plays is getting the offensive rebound with 30 seconds to play. They fouled, we made 2 free throws and then Rancik and Ilievski were cold-blooded, making free throws until the end. We played good defensively, holding Siena to 75 points."
"Congratulations to Nymburk for winning the game. It was a very strange and very tight game. We played up and down, but at the end of the game we were up by 4. Then we made two big mistakes in defense to let Dylan Page to score 6 points from two different positions. The first one was a layup with a foul and the second one was a three-pointer. We need to take something positive from this game about energy, about how we can find out shots in different ways. But if you are in the lead by 4 points with two minutes left against such a good team like Nymburk, you have to be more cynical."
