Head coach Ergin Ataman of Anadolu Efes, who beat Pınar Karşıyaka in the quarter-finals of Bitci Turkish Cup with a score of 87-64, explained his views after the match as follows:
"I congratulate my players. We played excellent basketball tonight. We played very well, especially in the first three quarters, against a team like Pınar Karşıyaka. We lost against them in the league a month ago, won the rematch, and proved that we are assertive in the Bitci Turkish Cup. We played good basketball. We defended, we passed the ball well in offense. It was a good win. Now there are two more games for the cup. We will play with Darüşşafaka in the semi-finals, they are performing very well in the league. We want to win the semi-finals in Bursa on Friday and go to the final."
