Mike Green
In the second quarterfinals, maybe the more fascinating match, Varese wins the derby against Milano for 92-74. There isn't surprise and, despite Milano would be favourited playing also in 'his' Arena, the first power of the league exceeds the octave (as consuetude of the last years) and reach the semifinal where will meet Roma (that winning against Cantu' has eliminated the possibility of the second consecutive derby). Under the eye of 7730 spectators Mike Green (185-PG-85, college: Butler) (MVP of the game) wins the duel against Marques collecting a triple double and leading Varese to the victory defeating the 'battleship' Milano. At this point the season of Scariolo and his Milano can already consider bankruptcy? About the game Varese starts very good and does not stop his course despite the few minutes for Dunston (only 23, conditioned by fouls problems) and thanks the great 2 points percentage (23/40, 58%) stopping the comeback of Milano with a perfect last partial. For Milano good game only for Langford (top scorer) and Bourousis, but not enough.

Scariolo decides to start with Radosevic and the Croatian does not regret the choice of the coach with 8 points in 6 minutes (almost the 60% of the total final points of the team). In the first 5 minutes the center is the only player to score for Milano that undergoes a partial of 8-0 after the first basket of the match. Too many turnovers for the hosts (6), bad for now the performance of Marques Green in direction with 0/3 total. For the Cimberio great Dunston with 8 points, good work of Banks especially in the final with 6 points (4 consecutive) for the 21-14 at the end of the quarter. Negative note for Varese are the 2 fouls of Ere after only 8 minutes.
Like in the first quarter the center of the EA7 open with 2 points but this time is Bourousis. However music don't change and thanks the new entered Polonara and De Nicolao (both 5 points) Varese reaches an incredible +15 (35-20 at 15') despite the second foul of Dunston (out for precaution) and leading by Mike Green, already with 3 assist in the first quarter (7 after 20'). Milano, with a partial of 5-0, comeback on -10 but loses Radosevic because the third foul. In the last minutes the men of Vitucci controls and increase the advantage closing the first half 46-29 thanks 3 free throws of Ere and 2 points of Banks with a buzzerbeater after a traveling of Gentile (all in the last 2 seconds). Ere is the top scorer of the game with 9 points, always 8 for Radosevic of Milano.
In the third quarter Ere writes immediately +19 but Milano don't give up with Langford, Bourousis and, finally, the first 3 points of Marques Green. Unfortunately Varese wrong very few in attack, Mike Green scores 5 consecutive points and, helped by the energy of Polonara, the Cimberio maintains the separation. In the last 5 minutes but Milano comeback thanks the points of the Greek center (two '2+1') and the triples of Langford (4/6) take advantage of the absence of Dunston, on the bench for 4 fouls, 2 really near in this quarter. With 2 minutes less Marques Green sings the 3 points shot for the -6 and, after the fourth foul of Radosevic, just returned, Rush (with an amazing dunk) and Langford with another triple set the result on 66-58 for the 'visitors'.
During the last quarter rages Mike Green with 2 consecutive triple (the first of his match) for spacing again Milano (+13). Langford and Bourousis try to react but are too alone, across Ere (2 decisive triples) and Polonara not wrong and Varese has again 19 points of advantage with less than 5 minutes remaining on the clock. Signals of life in the final also for Hairston and Marques Green but probably is too late for the EA7. Polonara, with another two 3 points shots, close definitively the game and the numerous supporters of Varese can rejoice. Final result 92-74!

Cimberio Varese: Green 23 pts + 8 reb + 10 ass + 10 suf, Ere 17 pts, Polonara 16 pts (4/5 by 3), Banks 12 pts, Dunston 10 pts

EA7 Milano: Langford 23 pts, Bourousis 12 pts + 7 reb + 4 blk, Hairston 13 pts, Green 5 ass
