In the first quarter the home team of coaches started very well Domenico Bolignano, also taking advantage of the slow start of the white-blue: in fact, there are immediately two turnovers for Tecnoswitch Ruvo. The first basket of the evening is made by the center Yande Fall which will also be followed by the creation of Amar Balic; in the ruvese house he thinks about it Mattia Mastroianni to unlock his. As the minutes go by, the Calabrian team continues to manage the minimum accumulated advantage, until it reaches +7 (15-8). Coach Ponticiello immediately calls the time-out to rearrange his ideas. From the minute of suspension, Tecnoswitch Ruvo returns to the field with another attitude: thanks to an excellent percentage from the 6.75 m throw, there are two consecutive triple Kurt Cassar that of Mastroianni; to follow those of the captain Leonardo Ciribeni and of Daniele Merletto, which are worth +8, thus ending the first period with Reggio Calabria 18 – Ruvo 26.
