Israel head coach Arik Shivek
"Congratulations to Serbia for winning the game. We knew the situation in the Serbian team, but sometimes thoughts are stronger than legs. We played very soft in the first half, but in the second it was better."
Serbia head coach Dusan Ivkovic
"Congratulations to my players for the deserved victory. The first half was our best half in these qualifying games, which was not easy because of the big pressure. The main thing is that we qualified for EuroBasket 2013 despite very big problems."
Israel player Omri Casspi
