Twenty points on the scoresheet and a heavy triple. Coach Piazza: “Too many turnovers, but I saw interesting plays in attack”
Vigevano in the lead of group A after two days, but the away success on Robur was sweaty, against a team that, despite having to always chase, never stopped fighting. «An important and heavy victory against opponents who wanted to do well and win the first points – comments coach Paolo Piazza – however we were in control from start to finish. We had to win this match several times, because even if we went ahead in double figures, Robur was good at mending up ».
Elachem with full points, while Varese after the negative debut with Pavia remains at zero in the standings. «La Robur – continues Piazza – has a roster made up of interesting young people and two veterans like Allegretti and Pilotti who have been able to show the way to never give up. A negative note are the too many turnovers on our part, but we compensated with good plays in attack, above all I saw interesting exchanges of the two longs: Radchenko and Rosa, called to replace Mercante (out for the last round of disqualification) played their job well. The two points taken on Saturday evening are important at this moment of the season because they are the ones that could weigh on at the end of the season ».
A decisive contribution
A fundamental contribution to the external blitz with his 20 points was given by Alessandro Ferri, mvp of the match, who also scored in delicate moments of the match such as when he managed to put a bomb from the perimeter at the end of the first half on a siren. «It was not easy to play on a parquet like Varese – observes Ferri – In defense in the first half we conceded a lot, but in the second we managed to close ourselves more. There was an aspect on which we worked a lot during the week, taking points from the hands of Allegretti and Maruca. We conceded a few too many penetrations to their play, but in defense in the second half we improved a lot ».
After the second consecutive victory in the league, the Vigevano Basketball is preparing for the next match, scheduled for Sunday 17 at PalaBasletta against Borgomanero (duo at 18). Jacopo Mercante, who missed the first two league games to serve the disqualification accrued last season, will return to being fully eligible for the yellow and blue team.
An additional weapon available to coach Piazza, especially under the boards and in the rebound fight. Andrea balloons
