A good experience for team representing Puerto Rico

Players of Fenerbhace of Turkey celebrate after the victory over Lancheras

Shanon Torregrosa, captain of Lancheras de Cataño: “I want to congratulate Fenerbahce for the result. This tournament is new for our team. We did our best with the players we had, since we don’t start our season until January, so we have played without two foreigner players. We played our best and hopefully next year we can prepare the team earlier and be ready for this tournament.  It was a good experience, hopefully next year we can do better.  During the match we have made some changes, we tried different strategies by trying to maintain our consistency at high level, but we also made many errors. In the end it was a good experience.”

Rafael Olazagasti, coach of Lancheras de Cataño: “Congratulations to the Turkey team for the match. In this match we made made many errors and when you make errors you can’t win against a strong team as Turkey has.”

Seda Tokatlioglu, captain of Fenerbahce: “Today we are satisfied to win this match and the third medal in this championship.”

Kamil Soz, coach of Fenerbahce: “For us was very difficult because we lost motivation yesterday evening when we lost the Semifinal, but today we won and I am happy to finish in the third position of this tournament.
