Gianni Petrucci and a touching dedication

Touching dedication by Italian Basketball Federation president Giovanni Petrucci after the Azzurri’s victory in Georgia, complete with winning qualification for the 2023 World Cup.

“I dedicate this qualification to FIP Deputy Vice President Gaetano Laguardia. I followed close to him the last 5 minutes of the game and I am sure he would have been overjoyed with this result. Also tonight the team showed character and determination. We are going to the World Cup deservedly. Congratulations to head coach Pozzecco, all the staff and all the guys who came through these windows. It is a good day for our basketball.”
