Marjan Ilievski: We didn′t play as good as before against the same opponent
Marjan Ilievski led Blokotehna to a second Final 4 appearance in as many years. His team secured its position after beating Kozuv in the derby of Gevgelija. Here is what the head coach had to say following the win:
"I want to congratulate my players although we probably played a bad game compared to the previous ones against this team. Probably it was because of the pressure that there was due to the fact that a win meant qualification for the Final 4. We had problems with injured players, one of our most important ones fouled out. In the same time I would like to say good words about the backcourt players and congratulate all the players and the management of the team the second straight Final 4 participation."
