Ataman: “I am proud of my players…”

Defeated by CSKA Moscow 83-91 in the finale match of Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four game Anadolu Efes head coach Ergin Ataman stated his thoughts at the post-game press conference:

"I congratulate CSKA Moscow. They’ve deserved to win the Final. They were very good at offense tonight, Will Clyburn and Cory Higgins have been effective on the three-pointers especially. They’ve had more experience than us. We’ve tried our best to stay in the game even after we were trailing 14 points and managed to come back after raising the toughness of defense. We’ve managed to get ahead in the third quarter but we’ve failed to turn the shots that will gain us self-confidence and turn the game to us into points. We’ve brought down the point difference towards the end of the game but we couldn’t win. I congratulate CSKA Moscow again. I would like to say it one more that I am proud of my players. Anadolu Efes will participate in Euroleague with the same players and same mentalism next year and this time to play in Final Four and win the trophy.”
