Forward Giorgio Broglia (198-F-86, agency: Interperformances) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Montegrano, receiving a Eurobasket.com Serie B Player of the Week award for round 3. The 30-year old player had a double-double of 24 points and 10 rebounds, while his team crushed Isernia (#12, 1-2) with 19-point margin 78-59. Montegrano is placed at 6th position in their group in Italian Serie B. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost that single game earlier this season. Montegrano will need more victories to improve their 2-1 record. In the team's last game Broglia had a remarkable 77.8% from 2-point range. It's his second year at Montegrano and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Giorgio Broglia averages just after three games 12.7ppg and 7.3rpg.
The second best player in last round's games was young Saverio Mazzantini (194-G/F-95) of Cecina. Mazzantini had a very good evening with 32 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists. It was enough for Cecina to edge Moncalieri (2-1) 87-83. The season is still at the very beginning and this victory may help a lot. Let's wait for the next round. Mazzantini is a newcomer at Cecina, but is already one of team's top players.
Third on the list of top players last round was guard Filiberto Dri (190-G-89) of Oleggio (#15). Dri scored 25 points and passed four assists. Despite Dri's great performance Oleggio lost 68-98 to Sangiorgese (#7, 2-1). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. Oleggio can only dream about fighting for top spots in Group A. They have awful season losing so far all 3 games. Dri has individually a great season in Italy. After only 3 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 21.0ppg (5th best).

Givova Scafati Basket (Serie A2) added to their roster experienced 36-year old American power forward Linton Johnson (203-93kg-80, college: Tulane, agency: SPORTlab Agency). He is not a newcomer in Italian League as he played last season at JuveCaserta (Serie A). In four games he recorded 6.0ppg and 5.5rpg.

The previous (14-15) season Johnson played at The Flexx Pistoia (also in Serie A) where in 11 games he averaged 9.5ppg and 9.0rpg. The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Johnson's team made it to the Italian Cup Final Four in 2011. He was also voted Eurobasket.com All-Italian SerieA Most Improved Player of the Year and Eurobasket.com Italian SerieA All-Imports Team back in 2012. Johnson has played also professionally in Spain (Baskonia) and NBA (New Orleans Pelicans, Chicago Bulls, Phoenix Suns, Orlando Magic and Washington Wizards) and Italy (Openjobmetis VA, Banco di Srd and Scandone Avellino). He is close to retirement age as a player. It's very possible he may end his playing career at Scafati. Johnson attended Tulane University until 2002 and it will be his 15th (!!!) season as a professional player. On Johnson:
Linton Johnson was phenomenal on the glass. He didn't shoot well, but he did a lot of things well. They're things that don't necessarily show up in the box score. Has that kind of hard-working mentality that is loved by all the coaches and team managers.
