Bologna, August 25 –
The jersey numbers of Virtus Segafredo Bologna’s Italian Champions for the 2021-2022 season have been unveiled.
No news among the players who already wore the black and white jersey last season, including Marco Belinelli who, this year, will wear the number 3 also in the EuroCup and not only in the Italian championship and with Awudu Abass who, vice versa, will wear the number 55 also in Europe.
The number 1 is the one chosen by Nico Mannion, who, except for the Golden State period where the number 1 was not available, has always chosen it, both in his experience in Arizona and with the jersey of the Italian national team. Among the new arrivals, not being able to choose the number 5 that he wore at Lokomotiv, Kevin Hervey “fell back” on number 8. Number 9 for Ekpe Udoh, as happened in his last experience in China. Number 14 will be Mouhammadou Jaiteh’s number, always worn in his career by the French player. “His” number, 10, was not available (another number retired in the Juventus jersey), and therefore Michele Ruzzier chose 11. Number 17, finally, for Marco Ceron, who in his career alternated with number 4: not being able to opt for number 4, number retired in Virtus, he chose number 17.
