These are the words of Coach Giampiero Ticchi on the eve of Game 2: “We face the return, Game 2, against Crema that as we could see is a scurvy team, able to put us in trouble because of their pressure that is suffocating, as if they were shadows.
We will have to exploit our physicality which is our strong point to try to counter their speed: we have worked well so we hope to be able to repeat the same attitude of the second half of Game 1, staying focused.
We know very well that we will play in a very very warm court that has already sold out, but we are mentalized to close the series tomorrow.”

Alessandra Orsili also commented on the eve like this: “In Game 1 we also took advantage in the second half of the increased length of our bench against a team that is constantly on a very high and aggressive pace. We have to let the initial rush that they will surely have, also given by the public transport, fade away in order to have full control of the match, so we will not have to rush.
We will try to exploit as much as possible the center of the area where we have our best potential, but we will all give our best because the playoffs are a “season” unto themselves.
Morale? Right now it’s through the roof, because it’s true that we had a few hiccups along the way but we were able to bounce back and start strong right away thanks to the strength of the group and our mentality.”
