Championship eve for the Bertram Derthona, engaged against Rieti at PalaOltrepò at 18pm. The match lost against Trapani in the last seconds left good indications ʺfrom the point of view of performance and attitude we hope - he claims coach Ramondinoto be able to propose continuously throughout the season. This week we worked with a good level of attention, trying to acquire more and more awareness, on a technical and physical level, of our strengths. Our physical situation must not be an alibi: we must work on the details to make our game as functional and effective as possible.

Coach Ramondino he then moved on to analyze the strengths of Pallacanestro Rieti, which is a team ʺvery tough and physical, with many players of size: they play very effective basketball from a defensive point of view and are good at breaking up their opponents' offensive plays and making other teams play badlyʺ; roster level is a lineup that features ʺa mix of experienced players and young players on the rise like Tomasini and Toscanoʺ. Coach Ramondino considers the tactical keys of the match to be crucial ʺthe hardness and physicality with which to face the match, in order to then be ready to implement the best technical-tactical strategy over the course of the forty minutesʺ.

Thus Brett BlizzardʺThe match in Trapani left us angry for a match lost only towards the end. I think we played a good match, despite the injuries that shortened our rotations: we are growing as a team in difficulties. This was a particular week in which we worked a lot on attention to detail in view of the next races: the important thing is to stay focused and continue to improve in view of the rest of the season. Against Rieti it will be important to think action after action, focusing on our basketball and on taking away our opponents' strengths..
