Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:

Obviously we had good and bad parts. We had good opening, we were dominant, playing good defense, scoring points and creating well. After that our defense dropped drastically, it was very bad, we allowed them to score 27 points [in the second quarter] with Loko playing shorthanded with many players injured. We had good opening of the third quarter again, we were controlling the game until the end regarding the result. Regarding the performance it was obvious that in some situations we were having "no legs", no freshness. But this is a preseason, we have some loading, we were trying to share the time. Congratulations to the team for the win. This tournament is dedicated to the memory of great coach and person Alexander Gomelsky. Unfortunately also we lost Dusan Ivkovic, great friend, coach and man.
