Italbasket, the 12 players summoned for Spain-Italy

It will close in Caceres, Spain (more precisely in the region of Extremadura) the path to qualification for the 2023 World Cup of Gianmarco Pozzecco’s Italbasket. A path in reality already winning, given the qualification to the rainbow review already arithmetically achieved, but that can be enriched with a prestigious success should the Azzurri manage to defeat Spain, coached by Sergio Scariolo, in the game scheduled for Sunday, February 26 at 6 pm.

The coach of the Azzurri, fresh from Thursday’s success against Ukraine, has selected 12 players to attempt a breakthrough that, among other things, would be worth the final first place in Group L should success overcome the 4-point gap suffered in the first leg match played in Pesaro last November.
