Cimberio Varese made 20-of-23 free shots (87.0 percent) during the game. They also forced 21 Sutor Montegranaro turnovers and outrebounded them 38-24 including 24 on the defensive glass. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Cimberio Varese made 7 blocks. 25 personal fouls committed by Sutor Montegranaro helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a great evening for American point guard Mike Green (185-85, college: Butler) who led his team to a victory scoring 18 points and 7 assists (was perfect 10-for-10 from the free throw line !!!). Nigerian-American swingman Ebi Ere (195-81, college: Oklahoma) helped adding 16 points and 9 rebounds.
