Loko's head coach commented on the victory over IBA (79:71).
- - How important was it to win today by all means?
- - We started the season in the league with 0-2, especially upsetting was the defeat against Parma, to whom we gave the game away. We tried to find motivation in those losses to beat IBA, a team that is playing very good basketball right now. In the first half of the game we didn't do much. We let the opponent attack our hoop too often and didn't score in easy situations. We started the second half more efficiently, we were able to neutralize the opponents' leaders - I think that was the key to our victory. Thanks to the fans - they filled the arena, despite it being a weekday. It was the stands that gave us the impetus that helped us get back into the game after a big break. We have a limited rotation right now - Jaylen Barford and Zakhar Vedischev just returned from injuries. And it's great that we were able to win in such a situation.
- - Why didn't Andrei Martyuk play today?
- - There is no special reason. It's a decision of our coaching staff.
