Cypriot-Bulgarian power forward Aleksandar Vezenkov said that Aris players lost their sleep after defeat to AEK last Saturday for the Greek Basket League playoffs.
"We lost our sleep since last Saturday", he said. "We looked at eachother and we could see the anger. We were prepared for war, even if we practically played without two players, as Naymick was at 10% and Adegboye was out. We heard a lot. That Bonsu is a Euroleague player, that English earns much money, that we are not good, that I don't play well. We felt that we were underestimated and we proved that heart and soul can beat money. Our coach helped us a lot, he was in pain too. Congratulations to everybody".
