The words of Sergio Scariolo on the eve of Virtus Bologna-Olimpia Milano

Virtus Bologna coach Sergio Scariolo presented in a press conference the challenge against Olimpia Milano, scheduled for Monday, January 2 at 8:30 p.m. at the Segafredo Arena.

“The one against Milan is always an extremely difficult game because of the very high level of the opponent,” the coach of the Bologna team immediately clarified. “We know that it is a special game for our fans who will not fail to come to support us with great energy and great presence, as they have always done in all the games this year. We have to be ready to defend for all 24 seconds of possession, because Milan is a team capable of using them all, and we will also have to try to capture most of the defensive rebounds. On offense we will have to play smart, trying to put the ball where we will have advantage, limiting the number of unnecessary dribbles and circulating the ball well to find high percentage shots, which against a good defense like our opponent’s is not easy. Therefore, we will have to have a high level of concentration and patience.”
