“We feel like playing.”

Present, along with coach Gianmarco Pozzecco, at the press conference held in Bologna’s Salaborsa Library on the eve of the friendly test that the national basketball team will take against France at the Unipol Arena in Casalecchio di Reno, Italy’s veteran Gigi Datome made the following statements.

“The moment of the gathering is always nice. But after a while the desire to get on the court and play goes up. France will show us the aspects to pay attention to if we want to do well at the European Championship. In Milan (in Group C of FIBA EuroBasket 2022, ed.) we will find strong teams, and playing at home is an emotion we want to experience as soon as possible. With the Olympics a path was opened, and we want to continue to convey that kind of feeling. The climate is great, coach Pozzecco is giving us a great hand, with few rules, but to be followed precisely,” concluded the former Fenerbahce.
