Zenit BC Head Coach Xavier Pascual:

We are very glad that we were able to win this not the easiest series and reach the next round of the playoffs. I would like to congratulate Enisey and their coach on the work they have done this season. Speaking about today’s game, I’m not happy with everything. Step by step we built the game. In attack, we did not have the best percentage of three-point shots, however, we controlled the selection for most of the game, made a very small number of mistakes. But I’m happy with the team’s defensive performance. I am very glad that we won and advanced to the next round.
