Quotes after the game BC Academic Bultex 99 - KB Rahoveci
Academic Bultex 99 won its first game of the new season in the Balkan League. At home the Plovdiv side ousted KB Rahoveci and left the visitors winless. Here are some quotes after the game was over:
Asen Nikolov, head coach of Academic Bultex 99: "I′′m happy we won because we lost the last three games. This win could help us to work in a more calm environment although we don′t have a lot of time because we have a match on Thursday. I however hope this victory will give us more confidence. I′m very happy with how Cedrick Bowen played as he helped with his experience despite having just one practice."
Cedrick Bowen, player of BC Academic Bultex 99: "I fell good to be back in Plovdiv. I′m well rested and ready to play for the team. I think we played well as a unit and I′m happy with myself, I played really simple. We did perform in the right way and I expect the same in the next games as well."
Marjan Ilievski, head coach of KB Rahoveci: "We started good but at one point the hosts, led by Shakir Smith, started playing with more energy. After that we made a lot of mistakes on defense and they deserved to win the game."
Christian Bradford, player of KB Rahoveci: "I think we played against a really well prepared team. We weren′t as ready as we had to be and we still have a lot of work to do. It was a bad evening for our team."
