Coach Attilio Caja at the end of Vanoli Cremona-Openjobmetis Varese Basketball:
«Congratulations to Vanoli for their deserved victory. It might sound like I’m stating the obvious, but I like giving credit where credit is due. Cremona is a great club with nice fans, to whom I’m grateful for the reception they gave us. Vanoli played very well tonight, while we just did our best. In defence, we were tested in certain situations when we tried to a score a number of 3-pointers. In the first half, however, we got them during the one-on-ones, something we tried to replicate with more focus in the second half. Cremona is a team with many strings to their bow who play harmoniously and manage to alternate their players to bring forward many who become key. We couldn’t find any of the key players tonight that we had found in Brindisi. Okoye and Wells are essential and we missed them on court tonight. But we had a good response from the bench with Tambone and Avramovic, who did some good things. This evening we also got some good feedback from Vene, who was at his first game with us. He has shown that he has some qualities that may be very useful for us in the future. We manage to do many things – we never give up in defence but then again, we need a little more quality in attack. And this is essential for us. Today we accept what the boys did who came off the bench».
