"First I want to congratulate the team of Sigal Prishtina as they played a good game. I know they have some injuries and they are waiting for other players, so it was a really good performance from their side. They played very well, especially early.

It was a very difficult game for us. It's our first win as a team so it was very important for our confidence and to have everybody start believing in the system. I would like to thank my players who performed hard, they left their hearts on the floor and played with much effort.

From the start it was tough and we had a hard time adjusting to their style of play. It was very difficult for us but I'm really glad that we did it and in the second half we were much better."



Tomislav Minkov had a great game for Akademik Plovdiv in the win against Sigal Prishtina. He finished with 26 points in his best performance as a professional. Here is what he had to say after the victory:

"It was tough game especially in the first half when we allowed too many triples and we were not focused on defense. I'm proud that we figured things out in the second half and I'm happy for my teammates that we won.

We had the height advantage and that was the reason why we had so many open three-point shots."
