"We have a very tough game ahead. Unics Kazan is one of the strongest teams in the competition and one of the favorites to go until the end. They are in very good shape, according to their results and performances lately. We won in Russia a month ago, but this will be a totally different game. We know that if we win this game, we will make the biggest step to qualify to the next round. Against such a good team, we must be focused for 40 minutes, play very good defense and control the rebounds. We expect to see a packed “Nick Galis Hall”. Our fans helped us a lot so far and their support will be very important in such a difficult game", said the Greek head coach.
Dominic Waters stated that the away victory against AEK will morally help his team and if Aris beat strong Unics Kazan will make a big step in order to advance to Last 32.
