Pallacanestro Reggiana wastes the opportunity to close the series with Reyer Venezia at the PalaBigi and will now have to play for qualification for the Scudetto semi-finals tomorrow evening, Monday, at Taliercio, against the winner of Segafredo Bologna-Bertram Derthona Tortona.

Last night a very hot arena in via Guasco was unable to push Unahotels to the victory which would have meant going straight to the semi-finals and arriving even fresher than their opponents. It was a great start to the career of the Orogranata team that made the difference and at the end of the first quarter Venezia was already ahead by ten (31-21), but thanks to a brilliant Mouhamed Faye (20+8 rebounds, but too many errors from the line and Michele Vitali’s 15 points (4 out of 5 threes) managed to stay in the lead and at half-time the gap was only 5 points.

We return to the field and unfortunately for the red and white Venezia – in addition to an excellent Rayjon Tucker, top scorer with 24 points and 4/5 three-pointers – he also finds very heavy baskets from Kyle Wiltjer (17 points) and good support from the former De Nicolao. But it is above all the team record of triples (16/30 from the arc with a 53%) that makes the difference. On the Unahotels front, the lackluster evening of Langston Galloway (2 of 6 shooting from inside the arc, 2 of 7 from three) and Jamar Smith (1 of 5 from distance) doesn’t help, as do the too many fouls by Tarik Black. , which still gives 14 points.

It ends 95 to 92 with Venezia managing to calmly manage the home team’s desperate attempt at a comeback. The decisive challenge is on Monday evening (8.45pm) in the lagoon.
