In the first leg, Carpegna Prosciutto prevailed 101-93, powered by 22 points each from Moretti and Cheatham, plus 17 from the absent Mazzola. This game dates back to December 11, 2022 and is valid for the 10th day.
The only two precedents come from that season when Brase won the league and Italian cup.
Carpegna Prosciutto Pesaro – Valerio Mazzola is out with a ruptured Achilles tendon.
Vasilis Charalampopoulos is out with an injury to the long adductor of his right thigh.
Carpegna Prosciutto Pesaro – Matteo Tambone completed three vintages in Varese from 2017 to 2020, scoring 5.1 points in 16.3 minutes of average use.
Luca Pentucci, assistant coach Carpegna Prosciutto Pesaro: “The floor in Masnago is always hot and difficult, a difficult game awaits us. We know Varese well, having faced him in both the first leg and the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia. He plays for speed a lot, using one-on-ones and pick-and-rolls to give fielders an advantage. We have to try to contain their wingers and slow their pace, we’ll try to go beyond the problems we’re having by bringing a lot of racing will and enthusiasm to the field.”
