Milan-Reggio Emilia 84-74

Olympia returns to the championship after a great victory in the Eurolig against Fenerbahce and with a win it does it in its own way. This time the defense is not as strong as in Turkey, but it is enough to take home the eighth victory in so many days. Reggio Hopkins (21 points and 12 rebounds) and Olsevicius (16) played well, finishing ahead of the first quarter 7 lengths (17-24), but Milan relied on normal Rodriguez (22) and Datome (20). Stay awake and find overtaking before a long break (49-45). Then in the second half coach Messina lifted the wall and Olympia conceded just 29 points in the two quarters, while in front of Rodriguez and Dotom they had good and bad times. The hosts thanked Motoglou and Daniles for 12 points and Melli for 10 points and 5 rebounds.

Brescia-Virtus Bologna 74-103

Virtus returned to success in an impeccable last quarter away from Segafredo Arena where it scored 26 points and lost just 7 points to Leonesa. Bologna, on the other hand, has become compact and has brought success with an extraordinary Wims. The final result, however, says a lot about the type of race: Virtus shuts down the first trimester before 11, touches +16 during the second trimester, and then reaches + 11 again at long intervals. The hosts came forward after the Serbians were eliminated in the second half, but an impeccable last quarter allowed the defending champions to avoid a return from Brescia and win two crucial points in the championship race.

Tortona-Sassari 95-89

Tortona is no longer a surprise. The newcomer is now a surety of this Serie A and Sasari understands it at his expense. Maintaining a perfect balance in the first half, the two teams are going to rest for 36 runs. Then, in the third quarter of 40 points from the hosts, Doum Mascolo and Makura Shield split the match in two. All three of them knocked Dinamo out 11-0. The +12 in the third siren does not disappoint the Sardinians who try to come back (-7), but relies on coaches Ramandino Philoy and Tavernelli to manage the final minutes and keep the guests away.

Traviso-Cremona 96-83

Treviso came back to success by defeating Cremona at the end of a tough fight and a balanced match. The hosts started strong, pulled by Dimsa and Sims. The Lithuanian pushed his side to victory in the first quarter (29-24), but Vanoli did not break down, reacting and thanks to a 9-0 break signed by Harris-Sanogo before the break along the limelight (53-54). Harris and Carnuh pushed the visitors to +5 (61-66) in the second half, but Cremona did not deal with Traviso’s pride that in the fourth period all the holes in the defense were plugged in and Russell and Sims flew away with shots. Also touch +17 before final 96-83.

Fortitudo Bologna-Venice 77-91

Everything is very simple for Venice, which makes the second success in the league at home. Fortitudo lasts a while: 40-42 on long breaks. Then with a break of 25-6 for the guests named Dhas (21) -tonat (16). The lakes in the third siren have crossed 14 and even a good prosida could not bring back Fortitudo. Venice brought in five in double figures, the best for coach de Raphael under the basket.

Trieste-Varese 70-86

Colpo Grosso of Versace crushed Trieste with a thrilling 86-70 and left the last place in the standings. Gentil (23) and Kell (24) take care of the guests. They both signed the most benefits in the first quarter (9-20). Lobito Fernandez, in support of Delia, tried to play charge at Allianz House early in the second quarter and succeeded, as Trieste returned under long stop just before (34-36), but Gentile had a lucky evening to push his side and get Varese back to the second siren. Den (36-43). Allianz reacted early in the second half, with Fernandez pulling back and putting their heads in front for the first time (57-53). Then, however, it again took the gentle-show, the Kel Chair, and moved on to the exciting +16 final in Versailles.
