Ristopro Janus Basket Fabriano Set to Face Gema Montecatini in Playoff Showdown

Having concluded the regular season in fifth place, Ristopro Janus Basket Fabriano is preparing to start the playoffs against Gema Montecatini. The Tuscan team finished in fourth place in group A, with a record of 20 wins and 14 defeats in the regular season. The series between Ristopro and Gema, the best of five games, is included in board 2 of the playoffs, with the winner facing in the semi-final whoever gets through the round between Liofilchem ​​Roseto and Geko Sant’Antimo.

The rossoblù team, coached by coach Marco Del Re, experienced a consistent season, in which they always remained in the top places of the group. In the first round, Gema was particularly effective, winning eleven of the first fifteen regular season games, and guaranteed fourth place by beating Desio in extra time on the last day. Gema can boast a collective accustomed to performing well in the Serie B championship, with many solid elements, starting from the play-pivot axis made up of Nicola Savoldelli and Marco Di Pizzo. On the perimeter there are the main shooters of the rossoblù attack, namely the guard Nicola Mastrangelo and the former Florence player Lorenzo Passoni. In the external roles there are two other important players, although affected by some injuries this season, the former Piombino player Saverio Mazzantini and the former Giulianova player Simone Angelucci, with the young Lorenzo Dell’Anna who has carved out minutes in their place. Giving breathing space to Savoldelli as director is Matteo Corgnati, born in 2004, while alongside Di Pizzo the Gema can field Federico Pirani and the Estonian Kirill Korsunov.
