NutriBullet Treviso Basket – Alessandro Simioni is out with a dislocated shoulder.
Dragan Sakota, UNAHOTELS Reggio Emilia coach: “We have another very important game ahead of us, a head-to-head encounter with a formation that may not have been directly involved in the struggle for salvation until a few weeks ago, but will certainly not fight hard now to be part of the “group” at the bottom of the table again. We come from a period where we approach racing with great seriousness and focus and I expect tomorrow to be the same. The boys will also play for Anim, whose absence will of course lead us to change the rotations on the wingers. Treviso is a team with very clear reference points: Banks and Iroegbu on the wings with their talent and athleticism, Ellis on the boards with his qualities as a post-bass player. This without underestimating the influence of many other athletes, especially Sorokas, Faggian and Zanelli. It’s a team that knows how to do a lot of things well, especially when it comes to switching games. It won’t be easy, but also thanks to the energy that our audience will give us, we want to continue our positive streak.”
Marcelo Nicola, Treviso Basket NutriBullet coach: “We will find a Reggio Emilia who is definitely in shape, who will do everything possible to climb back up the table and show how the conditions were at the beginning of the season. They are revolutionizing, changing and modifying many things and we have to be ready to face the game with the right physicality, which makes their way of playing uncomfortable. Like every day, I demand physicality, energy from my team. believe in our means and keep doing the things we know we can control.
