Marco Giordano begins to retrace what will be his sixth consecutive National Basketball League with the Regatas Corrientes jersey and does not escape the challenge, despite his young 21 years. The Rosario base admits that expectations are high and puts forward a new illusion.

“We have a week ahead of us to then face the first game and we hope to do the best to reach a good level in the game against Obras,” said Giordano in reference to the meeting on Wednesday, November 3, which will inaugurate the season and a tour which will also include a stopover through Comodoro Rivadavia to face Gimnasia (Friday 5) before returning to Capital Federal, where the Miter Park team will examine Boca Juniors (Sunday 7).

“Obviously we are going to try to win the three games, but more than anything we want to raise our idea of ​​the game, we want to be in our rhythm and impose our strengths. And hopefully that ends with a great result,” ventured the courage emerged in Temperley, club from his hometown.

When Regatas was excluded from Final 8 of the Super 20 tournament, Giordano acknowledged that it was a blow to the team’s spirit but he does not want it to affect what is coming. “The truth was that it was our goal, our idea; more being local … we could not achieve qualification but that’s it, it’s a thing of the past. Now we have to look to the future.”

And he rescued from the contest that opened the 2021/22 campaign: “I’ll take the last two games, which were more solid. We had better ball rotation, in defense we were stronger. We have to keep improving and keep growing.”

Now the mission from the collective for Regatas is to improve defensively. In this sense, the 1.92 meter player said that “it is something difficult to maintain, but you have to work and have your mind set there so that later the attack becomes easier to go through.”

Giordano, who knew how to be Olympic champion in the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in the 3×3 mode, endured despite his short journey to this point in the elite, a complicated hip injury and also just when he was summoned to join the squad of the National Team older, contracted Covid-19. However, today he wants to leave such vicissitudes behind to regain momentum and confirm that he is one of the great promises of Creole basketball. “I feel good, I am taking advantage of the opportunity” and the objective is “to grow, add experience, improve day by day and obviously training to be better every day,” he said in dialogue with diarioepoca.com.

Sharing a position with Nicolás Aguirre, the point guard from Santiago who has just won the last six league titles (five-time champion with the current reign of San Lorenzo and previously he was crowned with Quimsa), emerges as a beautiful experience for Giordano, who commented on the matter: ” The truth is that it is something great, I learned a lot from ‘Penka’, he is a great person who also teaches me a lot “.

As for what coach Gabriel Piccato wants from him on the court, he explained: “He asks me to be myself, to make the team play, to have it organized, to distribute the game and that when the situation is left to pitch, that make a note of”.
