Chieti is looking forward to face higher ranked Treviglio (#7) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

Michele Venturelli nailed 24 points (went 10 for 10 at the free throw line !!!) for the winning side. Agrigento's coach Franco Ciani rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Mirandola have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with Reggio Calabr. Agrigento lost third consecutive game. Agrigento at the other side, also newcomer in the league, keeps the fourth position with eight games lost. Mirandola's next round opponent will be Reggio Calabr. (#13) in Reggio Calabria. Agrigento will play at home against Latina Basket (#17).
An interesting game took place in Recanati, where higher ranked Treviglio (11-8) lost to fifteenth ranked Recanati (7-12) in a road game 69-77 on Sunday.
