Germani Brescia – Dolomites Energy Trentino 77-71 (20-12, 26-33, 23-13, 8-11)

Dolomiti Energia Trentino closes its preseason with a defeat in the sprint: in the final of the Bertolazzi Memorial, the bianconeri are beaten by Brescia 77-71, but only after 40 ‘in which they show solidity and personality. In two words, the ingredients that the bianconeri in this pre-season path have always been able to put on the parquet. It was not enough, against a Brescia that in the end made the value of its spearheads and the depth of its roster prevail: the bianconeri raised the white flag only at the last moment, trying to give everything even in a last quarter in which the fatigue of the double encounter in 24 hours seemed to prevail.

The bianconeri, as in the semifinals, in addition to Max Ladurner had to do without Matteo Spagnolo, who stopped on the eve of the tournament due to an injury to the rectus femoris of the thigh whose extent will be re-evaluated with new instrumental investigations this week.

Best scorer for the bianconeri a captain Toto Forray with 16 points on the scoresheet: 13 for Drew Crawford, who confirmed the excellent signs of Saturday’s debut; Darion Atkins also in double figures (11 points and 7 rebounds).

Now Dolomiti Energia Trentino can focus on the first official match of the season: on Sunday 2 October captain Forray and his teammates will play in Casale Monferrato in the first round of the regular season in Serie A UnipolSai guests of Bertram Yachts Tortona (duo at 17.00 , directed by ELEVEN Sports). The following week the first home matches: Sunday 9 against Treviso (duo at 18.00), Wednesday 12 against Patras in the EuroCup (20.00).

The chronicle. Dolomiti Energia impacted the match well (0-6), but struggled to contain the sudden flare-ups of Della Valle and his teammates: also helped by a few too many turnovers by the bianconeri, Brescia produced a wide break interrupted only by captain Forray’s baskets ( 20-14). In the second quarter the Lombards try the extension, but the former Crawford has other plans and with 9 consecutive points brings his team back in the wake forcing coach Magro to spend a timeout on 29-27. A three-point game by the captain and a triple by Atkins give Trento the advantage in the heart of the second set, at the interval the score reads 46-47 also thanks to two great individual initiatives in attack by Flaccadori.

Brescia turns the game with a great start in the third quarter: Della Valle and Gabriel produce points and plays, Trento returns to struggle to find light in attack (58-51). Crawford and Lockett try to respond blow for blow, Forray at the edge of the siren signs the 69-60 at the end of the third quarter. Brescia is approached by the points and by the energy of Udom, who with 7 consecutive points brings his team back to -2, but holds up the blow with the size of Odiase and Cobbins and takes home the first place at the Bertolazzi Memorial.
