The emotion is 100. Like the points needed for Allianz Derthona to reach the Scudetto Final. After the quarter-final against Borgomanero, the Bianconeri were the protagonists of another performance of enormous value and got the better of an equally good Pallacanestro Varese team in the semi-final of the U19 National Finals of Excellence at the Estra Forum in Chiusi (SI). Very tight game, dizzying pace with largely unreal percentages on both sides, with Varese appearing to have taken the right path at 87-92 with 5' to go and decided in the final seconds by two baskets from Lorenzo Baldi. Who completed a work built previously by the 50 points almost equally distributed by the two snipers Errica and Conte, by the double doubles in points and rebounds by Tambwe and Josovic, authors of fundamental plays in the heated final minutes, by the solidity of Diodati and by the personality by Farias, good at replacing a nervous Baldi in the most delicate moment of the fourth period. And then he himself, the Tuscan playmaker who is a prophet in his region, author of both the triple that put Derthona ahead by more than one possession exactly 1 minute from the siren (98-94) and the difficult penetrating basket of 100-97 at -11" never overturned again in the last action by Varese, who missed the possible overtime shot with Tapparo after 40' in which he and his teammates had repeatedly punctured the opponent's net.

Allianz Derthona thus reaches the final, where tomorrow at 19pm they are expected again at the Estra Forum by EA7 Emporio Armani Milano, winners in the other thrilling semi-final against Carpegna Prosciutto Papalini Pesaro (93-90). It will be the second final of the season between the two teams after the one in February at the Final Eight in Trento of Legabasket's Next Gen Cup. This time the most coveted title is up for grabs, that of Italian Champion.
