Achille
Polonara
Fourteenth-ranked Air Avellino (4-13) gave a tough game to first ranked Cimberio Varese (15-2) on Sunday. The visitors from Varese managed to secure only one-point victory 83-82. However their fans expected much easier game. Achille Polonara stepped up and scored 20 points and 5 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) for the winners. Cimberio Varese maintains first place with 15-2 record. Air Avellino lost third consecutive game. They keep the fourteenth position with 13 games lost. Cimberio Varese will face Montepaschi Siena (#3) on the road in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Air Avellino will play against Armani Milano (#6).

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 17: Montepaschi lost to Enel Brindisi on the opponent's court 84-94. Cantu unfortunately lost to Acea Virtus RM in a home game 60-65. Umana VE managed to beat Trenkwalder RE on the road 75-69. Vanoli CR was defeated by JuveCaserta on its own court 73-74. Angelico BI was beaten by Pesaro in a road game 89-76. Banco di Sard. won against Sutor MGR at home 106-90. SAIE3 BO was outscored by EA7 Armani on the opponent's court 91-68.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 15 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists by Drake Diener of Banco di Sard..


Enel Brindisi - Montepaschi 94-84

There was an upset when 3rd placed Montepaschi Siena (12-5) was defeated on the road by eighth ranked Enel Brindisi (9-8) 94-84 on Monday. Montepaschi Siena was trailing by 3 points at halftime but managed to get 3-point lead after three quarters before a 35-22 charge of Enel Brindisi, which allowed them to win the game. They dominated down low during the game scoring 60 of its points in the paint compared to Montepaschi Siena's 32. Montepaschi Siena was plagued by 27 personal fouls down the stretch. American forward Antywane Robinson (203-84, college: Temple, agency: Priority Sports) stepped up and scored 23 points and 8 rebounds for the winners and his fellow American import point guard Scottie Reynolds (188-87, college: Villanova) chipped in 21 points, 8 assists and 4 steals. American point guard Bobby Brown (188-84, college: CS Fullerton) responded with 27 points and Estonian Kristjan Kangur (201-82) scored 15 points. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Enel Brindisi moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Umana VE. Defending champion Montepaschi Siena keeps the third position with five games lost. Enel Brindisi will face Vanoli Cremona (#12) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Montepaschi Siena will play against the league's leader Cimberio Varese (#1) and will have a slim chance for a victory.

Cantu - Acea Virtus RM 60-65

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both fifth ranked Lottomatica Roma and 4th placed Cantu had identical 11-5 record. But Cantu was not able to use a home court advantage and lost to the opponent from Roma 65-60 on Sunday night. The guests trailed by 2 points at the halftime before their 37-30 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. International forward Luigi Datome (203-87) stepped up and scored 18 points and 5 rebounds for the winners and American-Nigerian power forward Gani Lawal (205-88, college: Georgia Tech) chipped in 14 points and 9 rebounds.

They moved-up to third place, which they share with Montepaschi. Cantu at the other side dropped to the fifth position with six games lost.
