Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
I would like to congratulate my team, we played a great game. We had the right mindset from the beginning. We had a lot of tasks to overcome the great quality Barcelona has. This is the EuroLeague you cannot underestimate or overestimate anybody, youve got to be focused. We shared the ball well, got boards, kept our composure in tough moments and the ranking 116 to 63 makes us proud of how we contained their creators and efficiency on offense. We won a lot of battles rebounds, assists, we shot well, almost a perfect game. We involved everybody to share the ball, give something else on defense. We were very good today. Weve got to continue but the most important thing, and what I said inside, is that we bounced back after two losses so that will give us a boost and get our confidence back.
