Tonight (ball at two hours 18) the race for the playoffs continues It is the first of five games (two midweek) in 15 days
Elachem Vigevano plays away today at 18 in Bologna. The ducals are looking for the two points that could guarantee them the conquest of the playoffs, which represent the seasonal goal of the Vigevano Basketball.
On the other hand there will be the newly promoted Bologna, which after a quick start in the championship has had a decline. «This team – says coach Paolo Piazza – is in eighth place in the championship and is fighting tooth and nail to win a place in the playoffs. They started their championship well in the round and remained first for several days. Then they had a small drop also due to the sale of what was their flagship element, namely the Conti guard ».
Beyond the disposals, Bologna remains a well-structured team with a set-up that has had few changes compared to the previous season. «They are a team – continues Piazza – that has changed little compared to last year. Basically we can say they play by heart. In addition to the sale of Conti, they recorded the Myers injuries and in the last few days they recorded a decline in results. On the other hand, they have included a player like Maggiotto whom we have already met when wearing Fiorenzuola’s shirt. If you pick up a new quality player a few days from the end, it still means that you are a team that has ambitions. In addition to him as category players they also have Fontecchio and Beretta who are two longs with experience in A2 and many young people who come from the nurseries of Virtus, Fortitudo and Reggio Emilia. We face a freshman, but in any case it is a team that wants to do well and is aiming for the playoffs ».
At Vigevano, meanwhile, the recovery of the young Rosa is almost complete, and should be available for a few minutes, since he has been training all week anyway. Elachem after the defeat of the last home match against Agrigento, first in the standings with which it remained in the game until the end, begins a real tour de force with Bologna. Wednesday will have to recover the match postponed against Sangiorgese and also the following week there will be a midweek round, practically until the end of the championship if the Gialloblu win a place in the playoffs as per seasonal objectives. –
