Coach Kapogianni said about todays match that: "First of all, we are very happy. For us it is a celebration because after 20 years our team goes to a European event.
That in itself says a lot. We have been drawn in a fire group, a very difficult group. In particular, Polkoviche is number one to finish first in the group.
However, we have no experience unlike the Polish team that has been participating in the Euroleague and EuroCup for a number of years.
We have a plan, we have young players who do not have the experience of the EuroCup. We want to look competitive. Whatever happens, I want to make it difficult for any opponent we have. We will give it our all, we want to have our world close by. The world is our sixth player and we need it. "I thank our people in advance for their support and we look forward to seeing a nice, competitive match."
PAO athlete Sequoia Holmes said: "We are ready for today. Polkowice is a good team with experience in Europe. We have to be focused and play tough defense. We will fight to have our chance. We are excited, the team is returning to Europe after many years. The Panathinaikos fans are one of the best in Europe and they are an additional motivation for us and we thank them for their support ".
