Quotes after the game KB Bashkimi - KK Ibar
KB Bashkimi recorded its fifth win of the season in SIGAL-UNIQA Balkan League. The Rozaje team hosted KK Ibar and got the victory after a much better second half. Here are the quotes after the game was over:
Illmen Bajra, head coach of KB Bashkimi: "At the start of the game we didn′t take control of it and we played easy on defense. In the second half we improved, we played aggressive and that made the difference. I want to congratulate my players for the hard fought game."
Demir Kalic, coach of KK Ibar: "Bashkimi deserved to win. My team was equal in the first half but in the second half we allowed 57 points which is a problem for us. We still had a good performance in the first half but our short rotation was the key for the bad play in the second."
Urim Zenelaj, player of KB Bashkimi: "It was a good game. We had some problems with their zone but we found solution and played good. We had some ups and downs but I hope we can fix those things and be readier for the next games."
Gerel Simmons, player of KK Ibar: "It was a hard fought game for both teams. They shot the ball well in the second half. We did good as a team but it just came down to a few stops in the second half and we let it slip away. We played against a good team and both side played hard."
