On the eve of the game with Brescia, Assistant Coach Andrea Diana spoke: “It is a very important game for our ranking and we are facing several important absences. We will meet Brescia who will arrive refreshed by the last victory in EuroCupo: a team that plays with high intensity and high pace, in constant movement on offense. We will never be able to get distracted and therefore defensive solidity and our physicality will be the keys to the game. We will have to contain their firebrands, starting with Della Valle, up to Massinburg and Nikolic himself: they have many arrows in their bow, even Gabriel has been having good games lately. The key will be strong and aggressive defense and rebounding. On offense we will have to move the ball as we did very well yesterday against Asvel, trying to take advantage of any advantage that will be created.”
