They are an unusual team, consisting of a bunch of outside players and centers with good shooting abilities for three pointers and long distance. They had a mountain motivation to beat the-European-topchart-hit-Partizan. Split is a disciplined team and they played long offensive plays taking our centers out and long zone plays defensively. We played beyond the satisfying level because we estimated that Split is not a team to waste stamina especially after Thursday match and a lot of psychological and physical fatigue. However, we had to play our level because they tried to use each and every flaw we made and we finally had to put some effort to prove our quality. In sports you balance winning and losing, but what it seems to be, we created a monster and nobody expects us to lose any match, ever. It's just not realistic view. ” , said Duško Vujošević.
