The LNP Super Cup opens with a victory at PalaMaggetti for Liofilchem Roseto in the derby against Teramo. A very intense race, not beautiful, with the workloads that are felt also because we are just less than a month from the start of the preparation and with coach Quaglia who has had the whole team a few times in training: first smile for the young coach Rosetano, and first applause from the PalaMaggetti fans, with a match that saw a balance in the first period, then the first heavy break of the biancazzurri, a guest comeback and overtaking in the middle of the third quarter with the last ten minutes all of local brand, with a super defense that gave the crumbs to Bottioni and his companions.
Statistics in hand Roseto shot with an excellent 61% from two points (19/31), doing well inside the area with the various Nikolic, Serafini and Amoroso and running when he could: an important match of Aleksa Nikolic, in his first senior year, with 18 points and a dunk at the beginning of the third period, 13 and 8 rebounds for Serafini, 13 also for Mirco Turel, returning after missing a couple of workouts due to physical problems, Alfonso Zampogna’s race was also excellent, returned with the team in the week after the dig over two weeks ago and still not in top form.
No pauses because on Wednesday (at PalaMaggetti) we will immediately return to the field for the second Supercoppa match: the biancazzuri’s opponent will be Ruvo di Puglia, victorious over Molfetta. Whoever wins goes on and the opportunity to go to the Final Eight will be played on Sunday.
