American guard Jobey Thomas (194-80, college: Charlotte) nailed 21 points for the winning side and his fellow American import power forward Brandon Brown (202-81, college: Tulane) accounted for 14 points and 10 rebounds. Trieste's coach Eugenio Dalmasson allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. American guard D.J. Gay (183-89, college: San Diego St.) came up with 14 points, 7 rebounds and 9 assists and the former international forward Rodolfo Valenti (198-80) added 9 points and 6 rebounds respectively for Aget Imola in the defeat.

Napoli - Tezenis VE 86-69

Napoli beat the opponent from Verona 86-69 on Sunday night. The hosts trailed by 5 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 11-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 86-69. Napoli made 19-of-23 free shots (82.6 percent) during the game. Tezenis VE was plagued by 24 personal fouls down the stretch. The former international forward Marco Allegretti (204-81) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 27 points and 10 rebounds for the winners and Czech center Jiri Hubalek (209-82, college: Iowa St., agency: Two Points) chipped in 21 points and 7 rebounds (made all of his seven free throws). Four Napoli players scored in double figures. At the losing side American guard Richard McConnell (182-89, college: St.Mary's, CA, agency: Priority Sports) responded with 15 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists and the other American import guard Charlie Westbrook (193-89, college: S.Dakota) scored 16 points. Napoli will face Sigma Barcellona on the road in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Tezenis VE will play against Fileni BPA in Jesi and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
