"It was like a final as the final place in the group was claimed. We played our best game and we had a right reacton to Slovenia's counter attack. I'm satisfied. It's difficult to face a team like Slovenia. The play through their talent. They are very good on 1on1 and from the arc. They are disciplined and I would like to face them again." Katsikaris originally said.
The 48-year old coach also mentioned: "The progress of the team is important. We are stable and we have quality. But we see improvement as planned. It's my second year in the team. We planned the team to reach the top of our form gradually.It;s not easy for everyone. Here in Zagreb, we try to improve and our target is to qualify for the knock out stage. We don't chose our opponents".
