“I’m very happy [with the win], it’s a big step for us to come here, our program has evolved in the last six years and this is a great accomplishment, but this tournament is far from over, and it’s going to be a big fight tomorrow against an excellent team again”, said Hoag and added:
“I wasn’t so happy with the way the guys played [at the start], we were overdoing things, I just wanted them to play the way we practiced, the way we’ve been playing lately.”
Canadian couch also said: “The guys are confident about competing against any team, they’re not scared of anybody, they have faith in the system we play with. Tonight wasn’t a great example of that, we can do much better, but I was pretty pleased.”
