Marco Patuelli, chief operating officer of the Lombard club, spoke after the draw: “Pallacanestro Brescia celebrated its second birthday yesterday and is in its first participation in the EuroCup, earned on the court with the results of the previous season. For Pallacanestro Brescia it is an honor to be able to participate in a European competition like the EuroCup. Our owner Mauro Ferrari has made significant economic efforts and Germani Brescia will honor the competition game by game. The group in which we have been drawn is tough, we will face some teams that reached the EuroCup playoffs last season and others that we have already faced in the past.”
