Zalgiris Kaunas head coach, Sarunas Jasikevicius, was not satisfied with his players’ performance against Armani Milano.

“The main thing I told players was that we have 7 new players and most of us are still boys. Boys won’t win in the Euroleague. Men win in this league.

My players still don’t understand that this is the most physical league in the world. It has nothing to do with the NBA.

It’s much more difficult there. The level of physicality is much bigger. You have to beat each other in this league,” the Lithuanian coach told reporters in the post-game press conference, per Donatas Urbonas.
