The most exciting game of round 12 in the SerieA took place in Roma. This derby game ended with only two-point home defeat of 5th ranked Lottomatica Roma (7-5) to second ranked Banco di Sard. (10-2) 83-81 on Sunday evening. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Lottomatica Roma. The guests trailed by 3 points after three quarters before their 30-25 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Strangely Lottomatica Roma outrebounded Banco di Sard. 42-29 including 17 on the offensive glass. The best player for the winners was American point guard Travis Diener (184-82, college: Marquette) who scored 15 points and 6 assists. The other American import guard Drake Diener (196-81, college: De Paul, agency: Priority Sports) chipped in 22 points (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Banco di Sard.'s coach Romeo Sacchetti used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the other side the best for losing team was American-Nigerian power forward Gani Lawal (205-88, college: Georgia Tech) who recorded a double-double by scoring 34 points (!!!) and 17 rebounds (on 14-of-16 shooting from the field).
