Post-game quotes:

Jacek Winnicki, coach of Dabrowa Górnicza: “We won and we are happy about this game. We won by 15 points and this is a favorable balance sheet with Oberwart team. We’re still fighting about promotions to the quarterfinals. Now we have the most important two games in Alpe Adria Cup.”

Martin Krampelj, player of Dabrowa Górnicza:We played slow in the first half and we fixed that in the second half. We are preparing to Sunday’s game and now we have couple days to get ready for Anwil Wloclawek.”

Horst Leitner, coach of Oberwart: “I think we started pretty solid. Then they pick up the intensity. We didn’t match it and then on continuation of the game they play with a lot of experience and cleverness. We lost our minds a little bit at the end. That was a well deserved win for them, because they were much smarter and more professional than we had.” 
Derek Hanes, player of Oberwart: “That was thought fight for four quarters. We had a good run, but we didnt’t execute at the end. That’s why they won today. Overall it was a good game, but we need to self-improve on.”
