Coach Attilio Caja at the end of Pompea Fortitudo Bologna-Openjobmetis Varese Basketball:

«On the one hand, we are certainly positive about the game we played, for how we approached it and for how we managed not to give up, even when the going got tough. The winning shot was within reach on a tough court. This shows us that we played a solid game. On the other hand, we regret having got just one basket away from being able to win it. Just as Fortitudo won without having stolen anything, if we had won in the same way, we wouldn’t have stolen anything either. We did a lot of positive things in defence and, in the first 20 minutes, we also pulled out some great plays in attack. Then we drifted downwards and, with some open shots pointed out by our shooters, we could’ve got a better result».
