Friendly with Euroleague scent for Olimpia Milano

A good first for Ettore Messina’s Olimpia Milano. The meneghina team took the court in the semifinal of the Pavlos Giannakopoulos tournament, played against the Israelis of Maccabi Tel Aviv.

In the match held at the OAKA in Athens, the Red Shoes prevailed 80-71, despite a start of the game that saw the Red and White in great difficulty.

In the second half, in fact, Olimpia definitely upped the pace in offense and defense, managing to easily impose themselves on the men of coach Oded Kattash, last year leading the hosts: Panathinaikos.

The best among the ranks of the meneghini certainly Naz Mitrou-Long, who finished with 19 points and 50 percent from the field, Deshaun Thomas author of 15 points and the returnee from Eurobasket, Giampaolo Ricci, who put up 13 points.
