Fuenlabrada center, Lucas Nogueira, talked to TalkBasket.net regarding the defeat of the Spaniards to AEK Athens on Wednesday (78-71).

Here is what the 26-year-old Brazilian said:

On the loss to the defending champions: “It was a tough game, we knew it was going to be a tough game. They had a lot of pressure, because they were coming off a tough loss on the road.

We knew they would come out aggressive, we should have been prepared. Unfortunately, we couldn’t win, but we can’t think about it, we have a difficult game ahead against Real Madrid.”

On AEK Athens center, Vince Hunter, and the damage he made to the Spaniards: “He is a great player, great athlete and did everything tonight. We should have done a better job against him.”
