Treviso wins its third victory in Group C and continues its pre-season so far perfect, scrimmage included. However, it is a bittersweet victory because at 6 ‘from the end of the third quarter an injury to his left arm forced Matteo Imbrò to go out on a stretcher and to no longer be available to Menetti, the player will need to be investigated. The first quarter, 22-20, immediately reveals a Treviso that relies on widespread danger (no player over 3 points) and a match plan that does not skimp on archery (5/10). Brescia, on the other hand, is almost entirely reflected in its driver Petrucelli, who in the first 10 minutes alone recorded 8 points and 5 steals. In the heart of the second quarter, thanks to a very energetic defense, Brescia tries to escape and touches the maximum advantage on +8, Treviso only mends a possession and at the interval the score is 37-42. The script, however, follows a bit that of the match at PalaLeonessa, with Brescia trying to escape but in the end Treviso recovers. The Treviso players on the Bortolani-Russell axis overturn the game and close the third quarter at 63-59 thanks to a 15-5 run. The end of the game is sparkling, as in a boxing match the teams strike blows after blows and you enter the last minute on +3 for Treviso. Brescia has heart to spare and repeatedly tries to stay in the game with the excellent Laquintana, in the end it is a triple by Dimsa with 16 ” from the end to extinguish all hope and to make coach Menetti cheer for 90-86.

With this victory, Treviso mortgages access to the Final Eight, but in Brescia there is no longer any chance.
