Bologna –

The girls of Virtus women finally make their debut in the championship in a home game (excluding the first day made in the opening day) in front of their own public, in the suggestive frame of Paladozza.

To visit the girls of coach Lino Lardo, will be the players of La Molisana Magnolia Campobasso.
Excellent start for the Molisane in the championship with a clear victory against Empoli at home and a further victory, after an overtime, against Costa Masnaga.
A team that offers a cohesive mix of experience and unscrupulousness: Premasunac, the Croatian, remains the number one wanted player for coach Lardo’s defense, with 81% from 2 and 60% from beyond the arc, making her a dangerous player from every position.
To help her out, there will also be Gray, a newly acquired player, who missed the first game but in the victory against Costa Masnag, she made her mark by scoring 24 points in 25′ of play with 62% from two and 50% from three, despite her role. To highlight also the contribution of players such as Chagas, Parks or Nicolodi who can fire up and make life difficult for Tassinari and her teammates.
Campobasso remains a tough team to play against, with an optimal amount of lost and recovered balls, 28-21, and a constant presence in the rebounding department with 69 rebounds so far, almost half of which are offensive. Surely the weak point is the shooting percentage, especially from the line with a unexciting 72% compared to an average of about 80% in the league. Even the percentages from the field are not very encouraging, especially the one from beyond the moon with a meager 11 made against 38 attempted that lead to a meager 39%.
In spite of this, in the game against Costa Masnaga, the team appeared to be in good shape, able to withstand an overtime despite the monstrous performance of M. Villa, author of 38 points, symptom of a defense that was not watertight. Physical strength and athleticism will therefore be one of the cards on which coach Sabatelli will rely, being able to count on 2 players over 6 feet tall, Chinenye and Gray.
