"I said from the beginning when I moved to Prishtina that we have an advantage in the home games, because the atmosphere here is crazy. I always say that if we concede less than 70 points we will win every match, and today we conceded only 62. Basketball is about defence. We now need to win at least one match to qualify, and we believe in our team." - Sigal Prishtina forward Yll Kacaniku.
