Coach Simone Pianigiani said afterwards: "“It was a great game for us because we fought for 40 minutes against one of the best teams in the competition and the win has a lot of important. I am pleased that the players stayed together even in the tough moments and they found the energy for the important attacks. We’re only in October, but still this is an important victory in our group and as a new team it’s important to show that we are working in the right way".

Jermoe Dyson added: “This was a great team win. We started the game the right way and not like in some of our recent games. We put the pressure on them. In the second half they made a comeback, but we stayed strong. Everyone did their job”.

Hapoel will travel to Gilboa/Galil in the 3rd game of the Israeli league on Saturday and the road trip will continue on Wednesday at Ljubljana for the Eurocup's 3rd round.
