THEAllianz Derthona Tortona will play for the final victory of IBSA Next Gen Cup 2023/24. A Final Eight di Trento the black and white team also clearly beats the Pollini Brescia in the semi-final for 82-60 and flies to the final act of the tournament Legabasket reserved for the U19 Excellence teams of the sixteen Serie A clubs, improving the result of the semi-final reached last year in the final phase in Naples. After yesterday's +25 against Nutribullet Treviso the coaching Lions Luca Ansaloni they are also repeated against the Lombards, in a match conducted in crescendo until the explosive final quarter.

The match at Il T Quotidiano Arena starts at a high pace on both sides, Brescia starts slightly better with Tanfoglio and Mbacké in evidence, but soon Josovic gets going for Tortona, who after a winning counterattack and a no look assist for the Van Der Knaap's dunk also marks the overtaking triple at 17-16 in the 7th, an advantage with which Derthona goes into the first mini-break thanks to Diodati's triple at the siren caught perfectly by Conte (24-23). Farias' excellent exit from the bench and Baldi's three points in a row lead Tortona to their first mini-break, +8 (38-20), the same gap that Allianz carried until the end of the first half (44-36). The start of the second half presents a more determined Brescia on the pitch, led by the revived Porto who scores all 9 of his team's initial points to bring them back into contact at 46-45 in the 24th, with Tortona unable to go beyond the only basket scored by Tambwe on his umpteenth offensive rebound. At that point Baldi picks up his tone again, he is the one who gets Allianz out of the impasse first with his second triple, then forcing a fourth foul from Tanfoglio and finally putting the bomb of the new maximum Allianz advantage, the +9 of 58 -49 to 29th. The last half is Josovic's reign: after 4 points in a row from Van Der Knaap, the Montenegrin winger scores three triples and the dunk on the counterattack triggered by Tambwe's block for 72-54 exactly 4 minutes from the end. It's a guarantee on victory, even if we have to wait for the target score to be set to understand how much is really missing from the Juventus success. The target score of 82 points starts at 74-57 for Allianz and is soon approached with the unleashed Baldi and definitively reached by Conte's triple which sends the Juventus bench running onto the field to celebrate qualification for the final.

Andrija Josovic earns the palm for the second time in two days MVP with a double double of 22 points and 13 rebounds for 31 rating with 4/8 from three, Lorenzo Baldi equals him in points scored and triples scored (on 10 attempts), Stefano Conte reaches double figures with the final triple, again Gloris Tambwe's contribution under the basket made an impact, one step away from a double double with 9 and 13 rebounds, while the usual thinking brain of Bruno Farias produced 6 assists.

Tomorrow 18 hours it will be a title challenge against the winner between EA7 Emporio Armani Milan e GeVi Naples: the race will be broadcast live on Eurosport 1.
