The words of Ettore Messina

Ettore Messina enjoys the sprint and comeback success in Belgrade: “An important win for us on the road, against a team that is always well organized by coach Obradovic and plays very hard.”

“A bad start, also given by the atmosphere, missing too many shots and shooting too much from outside, without going close to the basket. The game changed when we responded to their physicality and started moving the ball well on offense. I have to congratulate the boys, for how they grew throughout the game and how they can play in difficult circumstances with personality. This is very important.”

Among the players confirmed by Olimpia Milano over the summer are Paul Biligha and Gigi Datome. The latter, born in 1987, returned to Italy in the summer of 2020 to wear the red and white jersey after ending a fruitful experience in Turkey, at Fenerbahce. Previously, the Montebelluna native small forward had walked the parquet floors of the NBA, wearing the colors of the Detroit Pistons and Boston Celtics. Mens Sana Siena, Scafati Basket and Virtus Roma were Datome’s other Italian teams.
