ASVEL Villeurbanne coach TJ Parker talks with the media after the big win over Barcelona.
“I am not surprised. We have been practicing well and we got a guy back like Norris [Cole] who can help us scoring points and doing all those little things. For me, defensively, we did a great job. Everything we wanted to do, we did it, so they deserved it. If we just beat Barcelona, the number one team, I think we can beat anybody in any given day. And today, we proved that we can beat anybody.”
“I am really happy for the players. I am really happy because, like I always said, they work hard in practice every day. We are practicing well and I think Norris gave us a push. I think he was missing a little bit and scored some points. But I think it was a good all-around game. I mean, we were up the whole game against the best team in Europe, the best defense. It is well-deserved for the guys.”
