Sassari will play against Dijon in BCL

Dinamo Sassari coach Piero Bucchi spoke on the eve of the decisive Basketball Champions League challenge against French side Dijon. The Sardinian team, having played four of the six games in the group, has won three points but could get back into the race for qualification talks.

“We are playing a final, a very tough, difficult game, but one that we want to try in all ways to win. Dijon is a team that has great offensive talent, which is doing a top-level championship in France and in BCL has shown to be very competitive,” explained the Dinamo coach, warning about the opponents, victorious in the first leg match.

“We must try to repeat the game we played against Tortona. Holston is Dijon’s lighthouse, but they have a lot of players who can solve the game and have the ability to build a shot. Defense is key especially to be able to get rebounds and run in transition as well as the pace management we had with Tortona, we limited the turnovers as much as possible, we attacked with patience and found good shots. Then we will absolutely need the help of our wonderful crowd, which was great with Milan and also with Paok gave us a great hand,” Bucchi continued.
