Turkey Head Coach Bogdan Tanjevic
"I would like to congratulate my [Czech Republic] colleague. I never saw a Czech team play better than [they did] today. One reason [for the defeat] could be the freshness of their team. We can play better, like [we did] against Italy."
Czech Republic Head Coach Pavel Budínský
"We knew that we want to make amends before our own fans, after the loss against Italy. We played good defense with high intensity. The atmosphere and the fans gave us energy. Everyone was productive. The beginning of the second half gave us an advantage. I'm happy playing the young players."
Turkey player Serhat Cetin
"There is not much to say. I´m really ashamed of myself. We have now four more games. We are really down . We have to win our next four games to go to the EuroBasket. It´s my promise to the Turkish fans."
Czech Repubic player Jakub Kudláček
"It was a great game for us. We were well prepared. We know, that the key for this qualification is to win our home games. We lost the previous home game against Italy. I hope we corrected [that mistake] today."
