Riso Scotti, Piazza’s self-criticism after the knockout with Crema. Elachem, the rookie Borsato asks more of himself and the team
A bitter Sunday for Pavia and Vigevano, who fight but have to surrender in the big matches with Crema and Agrigento.
Piazza is self-critical
Riso Scotti will resume work tomorrow to start preparing the trip to Ragusa on Sunday 11 April. The play Andrea Piazza is still mulling over the home defeat with Crema: “We should have won, without appealing to fatigue for the midweek trip to Palermo. I don’t want to take away the merits of Crema, but we must not cling to alibis, the eighth consecutive victory was ours. Personally I’m not happy with the way I played, indeed maybe it was my worst performance since Fabio Di Bella was on the bench and this certainly didn’t help the team. rhythms. We do not make dramas, but the defeat burns. “Crema has shot twice as many free throws in Pavia, which hasn’t happened for some time.” In part it was due to the fact that they often sided with zone defense – analyzes Piazza – when you are more on your feet and less lucid, you arrive a moment later and commit a greater number of fouls. “Now there is the stop for Easter and the final eight of the Italian Cup, which will allow Pavia to take the in view of the sprint, with 5 games in three weeks. “We will try to take advantage of these days to work more intensely and understand where and why we made a mistake with Crema, and then arrive in Ragusa with a knife between his teeth – concludes the playmaker from Pavia – The defeat, in my opinion, will have positive repercussions on our other matches, because the air in the locker room at the end of the match against Crema was that we had lost due to our demerit and that we have to roll up our sleeves for the last matches of the clock phase ».
Borsato, debut ok
It has arrived less than a week ago, but it has already entered the mechanics of the Elachem Vigevano game. On Sunday in his debut, starting from the bench, Stefano Borsato, Treviso school, fresh from his experience in Cesena, scored 12 points, also giving his contribution in defense in the challenge lost by Vigevano against leaders Agrigento.
«I have recently been in Vigevano – explains Borsato – and my first performance was a match in which I made more mistakes than right things. The obvious fact is that we are a team that passes the ball and takes good shots. Our problem? When we broke in the third quarter, we weren’t strong enough to maintain the lead. We have been inattentive in some defensive details, we will also have to pay more attention to the choices in attack ». Borsato’s debut saw Vigevano exhibit an excellent performance against Agrigento, a team nominated for the final victory. By many the Sicilian one has been defined as a Lega2 formation without foreigners. The ducals remained in the game until the end, thanks above all to their ability to play as a team, as evidenced by the 24 assists that in the end resulted on the scoresheet. «I believe – says the ducal winger – that the problem is not passing the ball on offense. Unfortunately there were moments of decline or in which we did not keep the levels we had in the first and second quarters. I am convinced there is the material to work on it, it is not a big problem and now we have two weeks at our disposal ». —
