An opponent within reach and a difficult one in the next two days. Pavia hires the 19 year old play Andrea Birra
It is also played at the Immaculate Conception and at the weekend: bittersweet calendar for Elachem and Riso Scotti, with an opponent within reach and a more mangy one in the next two days of group A. Vigevano, after the away blow with Oleggio, will host tomorrow at PalaBasletta the Sangiorgese, penultimate in the standings with three wins and seven defeats, but returning from the great success (67-46) on Robur Varese; then, on Saturday evening, the much more demanding challenge on paper with the Paffoni Fulgor Omegna, second in the ranking arm in arm with the ducals. Pavia, reassured by the Livorno blitz with Libertas that interrupted the negative streak of three defeats (derby, San Miniato, Cecina), will receive at PalaRavizza the visit of the other Livorno player, Unicusano Pielle, who at 8 is part of the mid-table group, with one foot in and one out of the play off zone; Sunday, the complicated Piedmontese away match against Langhe Roero, currently fifth together with Fabio Di Bella’s team.
The leaders San Miniato, for its part, has the possibility of strengthening the primacy, having to deal with the rear Borgomanero, away from home and Florence at home, even if the other Tuscan derby with Piombino, won with difficulty, teaches that this type of matches are open to any result, even subverting the prediction.
Scotti, green line in direction
Pavia, meanwhile, formalizes the engagement, until the end of the 2021-22 season, of Andrea Birra: play-guard (187 cm for 90 kg) born on April 18, 2002 in Naples, he completed the process of the youth teams between Avellino and Isernia ; in 2019-20 the debut in C gold with Globo Isernia. Then Virtus Pozzuoli in B, where he collects 14 appearances, with averages of 13 minutes played, 4 points, 2 rebounds and 2 steals per game. In the current season, he always marries in cadeteria at Virtus Cassino, totaling 8 appearances with an average of 5.5 points per game and a high of 11 with Ragusa. Birra is described as a player “of excellent physical structure, athleticism, good archery”. In short, after the enfant prodige Calzavara, 19 too, the absolute protagonist of the Livorno blitz, Pavia continues in the green line in directing. «I am happy for this new adventure – is the comment of Birra – it will be a special experience, since for the first time I will play in a Northern team and I know that I will have to face many new conditions. I immediately accepted Pavia’s proposal, the company has shown itself to be very interested and I will try to repay it, giving everything. I know coach Di Bella for his extraordinary career, it will be an honor to be employed by him ». –
