Perasovic: “We emerged victorious from a tough road game...”

Defeating Tofaş on the road 89-83 at the fifth week match of Spor Toto Basketball League, Anadolu Efes coach Velimir Perasovic stated his thoughts at the post-game press conference:

“Today, we played against a very high-quality team. Tofaş is one of the best teams in the league, and they have very high-quality foreign players. We knew that the match would be difficult. From the very beginning, we tried to concentrate and defend well. I don’t like talking about referees, but today, they were very inclined to call fouls against us especially in certain parts of the game. And that allowed the opposition a comeback while the margin was high. Still, we kept on fighting and showed our character. Thanks to accurate shooting, we emerged victorious from a tough road game. I would like to congratulate my players for their hard work.”

Anadolu Efes’s young talent Samet Geyik also stated his thoughts: We were concentrated well for this match, just like the other matches. We knew it would be a tough match, so we tried to be as careful as possible. Any away game against Tofaş will be a tough one. After four wins in four games in the league, we just made that five. We are very happy about that. And I would like to wish the best of success for Tofaş in their upcoming games. They fought well today. Meanwhile, we would like to maintain our streak with a win over Büyükçekmece the next week.”
