The words of Nicola Brienza on the eve of the challenge with Reggio Emilia

Coach Nicola Brienza spoke in a press conference on the eve of the challenge between Pistoia and Reggio Emilia. "We lived a very beautiful week on and off the court that will be remembered for a long time by everyone – he admitted -. Winning in Bologna è something incredible and there’è was the icing on the cake of mathematical salvation. We have achieved our goal, now we have a month where we will try to make a further step".

"Reggio Emilia è a good team that has a’very clear identity – added the coach of the biancorossi -, they have very experienced players such as Galloway, Smith, Atkins and Black to which add an Italian group of excellent level. They can take advantage of a lot of quality, especially in the outfield, and they should be credited with having launched this season a young man like Faye who is doing very well".

"For us, the Bologna win put even more emphasis on our outside performance this season and the fact that we have more wins away from home at this time in the league really bothers us. That’s why we want to improve at PalaCarrara as well and show up with the right attitude right from the two-ball" Brienza remarked.
