Important milestone achieved by Piero Bucchi vs. Scafati

Dinamo Sassari returned to victory against Scafati, in the game valid for the seventh day of the Italian basketball championship, after a streak of three consecutive defeats between Lba and Basketball Champions League.

The coach of the Sardinian team, Piero Bucchi, in the challenge against the newly promoted team touched 727 benches in the top league, placing fifth in this special ranking, joining Gianfranco Lombardi.

“I am happy with the 727 benches: it means that the years pass but the important thing is that the desire remains intact. Tonight’s was a good game with the right attitude that we wanted to have especially in front of our home crowd. There are many positive points tonight starting with the return of Kaspar who confirmed my positive feelings of how I had seen him in training. We bring home 2 important points that give confidence, now we continue to work knowing that we have to keep the intensity high. Tonight we built some important baskets and the team was a team, something we had not seen in some moments before the break. We had a drop at the end of the second quarter but when it mattered the team responded presently, showing volition in defense, they helped themselves, we allowed very little. I am satisfied although obviously we know there is work to be done, with Stephens coming in we are playing less inside ball and we will go back to being more perimeter: we need to show a different face, Deshawn showed he is on the court with the right face and defends from five on all roles. I’m also happy for Jamal Jones, a hugely talented player who had a great game tonight, generous on defense: I think he gave an important signal in terms of attitude as well,” he told the official channels of the White and Blue club after the game.
