Sassari overwhelms Varese, Reggio wins in Trieste, Pesaro tames Brescia

By Daniel Fantini. An interference on the scoreboard is needed for Varese to be able to score the first points after almost seven minutes in the third quarter. And, in the meantime, Sassari has flown away, splashing like a crazed marble up a 24-0 run built between the two central periods. Despite the heavy absences of Gerald Robinson e Jamal JonesDinamo wins the top-ranking big-match ahead of Saturday of the 22nd day and enters the Top 4 of the standings with full merit (13-9). And the sixth consecutive successthe eighth in the last nine matches of a team that, only a month ago, was forced to watch the Italian Cup Final Eight in Turin on television.

Banco crumbles Varese agreeing to play at his breakneck pace despite a short rotation, buffered for necessity by an excellent one Tommaso Raspino in the role of defensive specialist all-around. But Sassari knows how to sink the blade where it hurts the most. Showing how coach Matt Brase’s system dances in a very dangerous way on a very thin thread that divides the fireworks display from the basketball abyss. The soft defense of Openjobmetis is affected by the talent of Chris Dove (23), from the wisdom of Stefano Gentile (16) and, above all, from the physicality of Ousmane Dioptrue MVP of a match who commands the center of the painted (22 points with 9/13 from two, career-high). And the attack, on a bad shooting night (only 6/28 from the bow for 21%), collides repeatedly against the wall erected by an attentive, ravenous and mangy Dinamo. Varese piles up 20 turnoversmany of which in a wicked third period that sees it fall under a break freak Of 32-4.

Sassari spreads even touching the +38, and continues to oil mechanisms that now seem to run on automatic pilot. Banco wins the rebound fight by controlling 19 offensive players, stands out in the line (24/28) and finds concreteness and effectiveness even without particular use of heavy shooting (only 8 triples scored). In the very long garbage-time finale there is room for everyone, even for career-highs Riccardo Pisano (4) e Matthew Librizzi (13).

By Daniel Fantini. The craziest race for salvation in recent years continues. Reggio Emilia, in great danger only two weeks ago, re-emerges with arrogance by threading the second consecutive victoryafter the one on Naples and engages the penultimate group (Scafati, Verona and Naples itself), all engaged in Sunday evening matches.

UnaHotels celebrates a great victory deserved, group, cohesive and collectivebranded by the triple finals of Jeremy Senglin (MVP with 16 points and 4/4 from the arc) e remove anim (12). Coach Dragan Sakota’s team gets strong responses from all of its key players. Andrea Cinciarini (15) shows that he can be incisive even in alternation with Senglin himself. Momo Diouf (9+4 rebounds) is a determining factor in signing the stretch at the start of the match (16-24 at the first break). Osvaldas Olisevicius a thoroughbred attacker, with a thousand resources (13 with 5/12 from two). And also Mikael Hopkinsdespite a declining season, always remains an important lifeline under the boards (13+9 rebounds).

Trieste, now eleventh a 9-13instead loses contact from the playoff area, showing himself too dependent on his pair of wingers composed of Corey Davis (23) and from the reentrant Frank Bartley (27 points, but with two decisive errors in the final sprint). Coach Legovich’s team fails to involve Emanuel Terry (one point in 21 ‘), collects only a couple of leaps at the start of the game from Skylar Spencerand has yet to find the best way to enter the new signing Jalen Hudsonmaking his debut with just 2 points in 8 minutes.
