Coach Attilio Caja at the end of Pallacanestro Trieste Basketball-Openjobmetis Varese Basketball:

«I have to congratulate my lads who played an excellent game. We were afraid of Trieste’s pace and style of play, who played very well even last year at home. Dalmasson’s game is brilliant across the entire court and we had to try hard to not allow them to pick up the pace, risking a lot of fouls to break up their game. The tactic paid off because having sacrificed a few of our players who got to 5 fouls a piece, we succeeded. We were able to keep up the pace and to continue our game plan using blocks for our point guard. Even in the third quarter when Trieste were trying to get back, we did well in working together, so congratulations squared to the lads!»
