Drake Diener
In the first match of the day, the third quarterfinal, face off between two big surprises of this first part of season, Sassari and Brindisi. In a really fought game (without the two captains Vanuzzo and Ndoja) at the end is the second force of the league to win thanks an amazing Drake Diener (196-G-81, agency: Priority Sports, college: De Paul), MVP, that closes with 36 points and 8/14 by 3. The Dinamo reaches the semifinal waiting for his opponent. However great game also for the team of Piero Bucchi, that can't will try to win his third Italian F8 (after that with Treviso and Napoli). The match it's been very balanced and is ended only after an overtime.

Robinson open the game with 2 points (8 in total in the first quarter, like his teammate Gibson) and, despite a great Drake Diener that starts with 11 points (2 consecutive triples in the first seconds and 3/5 total), there is great balance. After only 3 minutes Reynolds commits already his second foul but coach Bucchi decides to leave him on the court for some other minute. The Dinamo, excluding Drake Diener, has a bad percentage by 3 (0/6) but remains in contact thanks the points under the board of Easley (6 with 4 rebounds). False start for the best playmaker of the league: Travis Diener after 10 minutes has just one point (0/3 at shoot even if already 4 assist) and 2 fouls committed in the 24-22 final for Brindisi.
The second quarter starts with the alley-oop Viggiano-Grant (next the dunk a tecnical foul for the American center) and a Drake Diener always on fire. The game remains very balanced also because the not exciting percentage. With little more than 3 minutes remaining shots begin to enter and the Enel reaches the +5 thanks a partial of 6-0 with 2 triples of the couple Formenti-Fultz. Brindisi maintains the advantage (up to a maximum of 6 points) thanks to other 2 triples (always Formenti-Fultz) despite a rumbustious Drake Diener. In the last action of the first half the buzzerbeater of Sacchetti set the result on 45-44 for the team of Brindisi. For the leaders only Robinson in double digit with 10 points, 9 for Gibson while Drake Diener leads the Dinamo with 19 points in 18 minutes and an amazing 6/8 total (5/7 by 3).
The game restarts with a bad news for Bucchi: the third foul of Gibson after just 2 minutes. Thornton and Viggiano score by 3 and, after a tecnical foul for the bench of Sassari and a great dunk of Simmons (also 4 blocks in the quarter for the center with Bulgarian passport), Brindisi moves 7 points ahead. Finally Travis Diener finds his first triple but across the axis Reynolds-Viggiano don't miss a beat (7 assist for the playmaker and 15 points for the forward). Drake Diener (with 5 consecutive points) and Thornton try to mend the breach but thanks also to the help of Gibson Brindisi is again on +7 at 27'. In the last minutes starts the personal challenge between Gibson and Thornton and, thanks 3 amazing consecutive triples of the ex Siena (17 points in the quarter), Sassari took strongly the lead before the 2 free throws of Viggiano (caused by the fourth foul of the same Thornton) for the 73-72.
In the last quarter seems to have finally arrived the time of Travis Diener that starts with 2 points and an assist for Sacchetti (+4 Dinamo). Shortly after arrives the fourth foul of the son of the coach but this don't stop Sassari that with 5 consecutive points of the usual Drake Diener leads despite 2 dunks of Simmons. With another dunk of his center Brindisi impacts on 82-82 and, after a pair of errors of Ignerski, the Enel back forward thanks the triple of Zerini and another dunk of the usual Simmons. Thanks 4 points of the cousins Diener Sassari back in contact and Easley draw with a free throw (87-87 at 39'). In the last minute 4 consecutive errors (Thornton, Reynolds, Sacchetti and Reynolds again) send the game to the overtime!
In the first OT the first basket is for Gibson, Thornton and Drake Diener takes Sassari on +3 but after few seconds with the triple Gibson draw again. Sassari don't exploit 3 consecutive offensive rebounds and, after the timeout, Simmons signs the 94-93 for Brindisi. In the last 2 minutes Easley is decisive with 2 points and a perfect defense that provides the breakthrough of Viggiano and his fifth foul. With another 3 points shoot Drake Diener writes a partial of 5-0 and the +4 for the Dinamo. After some errors and free throws (fifth foul of Thornton) Gibson has the chance to draw again with the last shoot but, despite 5 seconds remaining, his conclusion is short and Sassari wins an exciting game for 98-96! The top scorer of the game is Drake Diener with 36 points, 25 for Thornton (17 only in the third quarter) and usual double-double for Easley (15 + 10 rebounds) and Travis Diener (13 + 12 assist). For the defeated 26 points of Gibson, 18 of Simmons (with 10 rebounds) and 15 for Viggiano.

Banco Sardegna Sassari: Drake Diener 36 pts (8/14 by 3, 13/25 total), Thornton 25 pts + 8 reb, Easley 15 pts + 10 reb, Travis Diener 13 pts + 12 ass.
