Towards UNAHOTELS Reggio Emilia-Bertram Derthona: the words of coach Ramondino

The eve of the second championship match for Bertram Derthona, awaiting the match against UNAHOTELS Reggio Emilia scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday 9 October, at 17.35 pm at PalaBigi. The Bianconeri are fresh off the victory against Dolomiti Energia Trentino, which came thanks to “Great character shown by the players in the second half – begins coach
Ramondino – in which they leveled up and increased compactness”.

The Juventus head coach then presented the characteristics of the next opponent: “Reggio Emilia is a very organized team, with well-defined hierarchies and a large and clear rotation, in which each player has a specific role and task. He immediately found a balance, without suffering from the change of coach. Confirming the play-pivot axis from last season is certainly an important reference for the team. Like all high-level formations, it does not have one characteristic that is more important than others.".

Moving on to the analysis of the individuals, this is coach Ramondino's comment: “The UNAHOTELS has dangerous shooters like Robertson and Vitali and big, versatile and dynamic big men like Hopkins, Frandenburg and Diouf. Furthermore, Cinciarini is the point guard and leader of the team, an example of continuity and excellence at the highest level. His way of interpreting matches influences the choices, but Reggio cannot be reduced to just one player or characteristic. So we need to try to understand how to break the automatisms and what to agree to grant".

Dertona Basket announces that JP Macura worked in the group all week and is therefore back at coach Ramondino's disposal, while Leon Radošević carried out instrumental tests during the week which highlighted inflammation in the external patellofemoral area. He trained separately during the week, so his use will be evaluated by the medical staff close to the match.

Niccolò Filoni, who suffered a severe bruise to his right foot on Tuesday, will not be in the match.
