Towards Bertram Derthona-Pallacanestro Trieste: the words of coach Ramondino

Last championship match before the Frecciarossa Final Eight 2023 for Bertram Derthona, who Sunday February 12 17.00 hours Paolo Ferraris will be back on stage at the PalaEnergica to face the Trieste basketball in the match valid for the 19th day of the 2022/23 Serie A championship.

Presenting the characteristics of the next opponents is, as usual, coach Marco Ramondino: “Trieste is a team that, as I said at the end of the first leg, was very close to turning a corner and so it happened. After the defeat against us she stepped up and had an important season: now she is a serious candidate for the playoffs. He has changed a lot in the roster, adding Ruzzier and recovering Lever, he has reversed the hierarchies between Deangeli and Campogrande, and now inserted Emanuel Terry who is a player with an important pedigree also at EuroLeague level. We face a team that plays balanced basketball, with many players capable of making baskets on the outside and physical and athletic big men who put incredible pressure on rebounds, have a predisposition for offensive rebounding and the ability to attack the area with cuts. In defense, Trieste can impose its size or make strategic choices, such as zone defense, during the match."

"From our point of view – continues the Juventus head coach – we will have to maintain our identity by playing as a team on both sides of the pitch: offensively we will need to move the ball well and change sides as Trieste, due to its size, athleticism and strategic choices, is good at forcing opponents into static situations, while in defense we will have to have great attention on their wingers because there are many players capable of creating from the dribble”.[simple_tooltip content='This is the content for the tooltip bubble']This activates the tooltip[/simple_tooltip]
