New basketball season begins in Brescia

With the Final Four of the Italian Supercup, the new basketball season gets underway. Sergio Scariolo, a great protagonist at the European Championship with his Spain, appreciated the improvements of the national team led by coach Gianmarco Pozzecco.

“I understand the disappointment after a game (with France, ed.) that was in the bag. But I would look at the glass half full: now Italy has high-level players. And it has the prospect of inserting Paolo Banchero, someone who can change the face of a team,” the Virtus Bologna coach’s words to Corriere della Sera. A joke also on the Scudetto fight: “Milan is in pole but we are on the side.”
