Bryant
Dunston
SerieA top team - Cimberio Varese (14-2) managed to deliver another win on Sunday. This time they beat seventh ranked Enel Brindisi (8-8) 83-71. The hosts were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Cimberio Varese forced 21 Enel Brindisi turnovers. Worth to mention a great performance of American power forward Bryant Dunston (202-86) who helped to win the game recording 15 points, 7 rebounds and 6 blocks. point guard Andrea De Nicolao (185-91) contributed with 14 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. American forward Antywane Robinson (203-84, college: Temple, agency: Priority Sports) replied with 18 points and 5 rebounds for Enel Brindisi. Enel Brindisi's coach Pier Luigi Bucchi rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Cimberio Varese maintains first position with 14-2 record. Newly promoted Enel Brindisi keeps the seventh place with eight games lost. They share the position with Trenkwalder RE and Umana VE. Cimberio Varese are looking forward to face Air Avellino (#14) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Enel Brindisi will play against Montepaschi Siena (#3) and is hoping to prove to their fans that this time they can win.
Sixteenth-ranked VL Pesaro (3-13) was very close to win a game against fifth ranked Lottomatica Roma (11-5). Lottomatica Roma managed to secure only one-point victory 65-64. However their fans expected much easier game. Worth to mention a great performance of international forward Luigi Datome (203-87) who helped to win the game recording 21 points and 5 rebounds and Gani Lawal who added 12 points and 8 rebounds during the contest. At the losing side American-Lebanese swingman Antwain Barbour (196-82, college: Kentucky, agency: Three Eye Sports) responded with 20 points. VL Pesaro's coach tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Lottomatica Roma have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Cantu. VL Pesaro at the other side stay at the bottom position with 13 games lost. They share it with Angelico BI. Lottomatica Roma will play against Cantu (#4) on the road in the next round. VL Pesaro will play against Angelico Biella (#15) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
A very close game took place in Bologna between Vanoli Cremona and SAIE3 BO. Twelfth ranked Vanoli Cremona (6-10) got a very close victory on the road over 11th ranked SAIE3 BO (6-10). Vanoli Cremona managed to escape with a 1-point win 93-92 in the fight for the eleventh place. The winners were led by Lance Harris who scored that evening 28 points and 6 rebounds. Even a double-double of 19 points and 12 rebounds (perfect from the field making all seven shots !!!) by Angelo Gigli did not help to save the game for SAIE3 BO. SAIE3 BO's coach Alessandro Finelli let to play ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Vanoli Cremona moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with defeated SAIE3 BO. SAIE3 BO lost sixth consecutive game. Vanoli Cremona will meet at home higher ranked Juvecaserta (#10) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. SAIE3 BO will play against Armani Milano and hope to secure a win.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Cantu (11-5) and Umana Venezia (8-8), which took place in Venezia. Higher ranked Cantu lost to ninth ranked Umana Venezia in a road game 79-83. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Cantu. Yakhouba Diawara fired 29 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. Umana Venezia's coach Andrea Mazzon allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Umana Venezia moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Trenkwalder RE and Enel Brindisi. Cantu at the other side keeps the fourth position with five games lost. Umana Venezia's next round opponent will be Trenkwalder RE (#8) in Reggio Emilia. Cantu will play at home against Lottomatica Roma (#5) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game between 15th ranked Angelico Biella (3-13) and second ranked Banco di Sard. (13-3) in Biella on Sunday ended with biggest points difference. Guests from Sassari outscored Angelico Biella 100-72. It was a very good performance for Travis Diener who helped to win the game recording 22 points and 4 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Banco di Sard. maintains second position with 13-3 record behind leader Cimberio VA. Angelico Biella lost seventh consecutive game. They keep the fifteenth place with 13 games lost. Banco di Sard. will face Sutor Montegranaro (#13) at home in the next round which should be another easy win for them. Angelico Biella will play against VL Pesaro and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Other games in round 16 were not that significant. Trenkwalder RE was beaten by Montepaschi on the road 64-49. JuveCaserta lost to EA7 Armani on its own court 69-78. Sidigas AV was outscored by Sutor MGR in Montegranaro 71-95.


Montepaschi - Trenkwalder RE 64-49

No shocking result in a game when third ranked Montepaschi Siena (12-4) beat at home 7th ranked Trenkwalder RE (8-8) 64-49 on Monday. The game without a history. Montepaschi Siena led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. It was a very good performance for Georgian Viktor Sanikidze (203-86) who helped to win the game recording 6 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists.
