The Cat Basket Vigevano, in collaboration with the Bottacin family, the Elachem Vigevano of the vice president Marino Spaccasassi, the Pool Vigevano Sport and the Municipality of Vigevano organize for tomorrow the first edition of the «Memorial Gianluca Bottacin – Basketball in the heart». It will be a long day of basketball entirely dedicated to the memory of the vice president of the Cat which will culminate with the match (two ball at 18.30) scheduled in the new ducal sports hall (entrance to the car park from via Gravellona-Strada Casalino) among the Italian champions of EA7 Emporio Armani Olimpia Milano and the renewed Carpegna Pesaro. The two formations of A1 will face each other in a friendly match dedicated to the memory of Bottacin: the presence of the big names of the Milanese squadron of reigning Italian champions has been announced, except for the national teams returning from the European Championships.
