"It was a very good tournament with 3 powerfull teams and our presence here can only help us. We need time since we readjust some things to our game and this brings new standards to our players. We faced the strongest team in the tournament, we controlled the flow of the game and we did not let them run on the fast break. That's the positive thing from today. We fought on defense, we were better than we were in the last two games. Our players understood their turnovers and when you play well on defense, you have confidense on offense. We were good against a very strong and fast team, in their home. We have to reduce our turnovers and increase our good moments. We begin a very long and tough season. Rethymno are a very tough opponent. It's our first official game, they have five new players from abroad and we want to stay focused on our plan and play our game" said Markopoulos.
