Dusan Sakota
It's semifinals time! In the first match of the day the first team of the league Varese (15-3 the record) faces the Acea Roma. The Cimberio has eliminated, in the derby, the EA7 Milano while the Virtus defeated the other Lombard team, Cantu'. Supporters are mainly for Varese today here in the Mediolanum Forum and can rejoice for the victory of their team that will play tomorrow in the final! In the 81-71 final the MVP title of the game is shared by Dusan Sakota (209-SF-86, agency: Beo Basket) and Ere that with 44 total points led the team, thanks a great last quarter, to the win despite the bad evening of the guard Banks. For the Virtus not a good day for Lawal and Datome that closes with 11 points and 4/16 total but all Roma plays with lack of clarity closing with only 3 assist and 22 turnovers shooting really bad by 3 (3/21). Varese loses the fight at rebound 41-33 despite the foul problems in the last 10 minutes for the big men of Roma but shoots with a great 52% by 3 (13/25) thanks also the amazing day of Sakota.

The first ball of the match is for Varese and Dunston open the game with 2 points. The first point of Roma, after the triple of Banks, arrives only after 2 minutes thanks a free throw of Lawal. The Virtus starts the pressing (steal and points in counterattack for Jones) and the aggressivity of the Nigerian center causes the first foul of Dunston. Datome scores for the 6-0 partial but, after a pair of offensive rebounds and 2 triples (Ere-Polonara), Varese writes immediately +5. The first really bad news for coach Calvani is the second foul of Lawal after just 6 minutes. Varese tries to escape but wastes different occasions after the turnovers of Roma and loses, for the second foul, his American center. With the last possession De Nicolao scores by 3, Datome fails the last shot (1/7 for the MVP of the quarterfinal) and the quarter ends with the partial of 18-10.
In the first possessions of the second quarter Roma loses another ball, Polonara commits his second foul and his substitute Sakota scores 7 consecutive points for the max advantage, +10 at 13'. Also for the other center of Vitucci, Talts, arrives the second foul and Roma tries to comeback in the score thanks the points of Taylor and the energy of Czyz (third foul shortly after) and Lorant. Sakota stops the strip of the Virtus with another triple but Roma reacts with the first points of Goss (2+1) and a little of defensive pressing that procures 3 steals and the -4 thanks 2 point of the captain Datome. After the timeout, in the last minutes, Taylor reaches the double digit and the first half ends with the result of 35-32 for the Cimberio. Sakota, with 10 points in the second quarter and a perfect 4/4 is the top scorer of Varese, 10 points of Taylor for Roma (that has zero assist in 20 minutes without triples). For the most expected player, Datome, 7 points (3/10) and 6 rebounds with also his second error in the free throws during the competition (90/93 and 97% in 18 games this season).
After 3 total error for both the teams Taylor signs the first points of the second half and, after the basket of Dunston, with 5 consecutive points Goss leads for the first time Roma ahead. Ere answers next but another 5-0 (Taylor and Goss again by 3) allows Roma to reach the max advantage, +4 with little more than 5 minutes remaining. Sakota closes the partial with another bomb and Ere completes the overtaking helped by the defense of Dunston, that blocks the penetration of Goss, and the fourth triple of the ex Pesaro that forces the timeout of Calvani to stops the partial of 8-0. Taylor answers to the 2 points of Ere (arrived at 15) and, in the last 2 minutes, after the third foul (this in attack) for Green, Roma back forward with Jones (important is contribution under the board with 9 rebounds) and D'Ercole with Sakota that wrong his first shoot of the match for the 53-52 final. For now the big absent of the game is Banks, only 5 points and 2/9.
In the last quarter Goss and Ere continue to score but is still decisive Jones with an offensive rebounds (third captured) converted in 2 points for the 57-57 after 2 minutes. Goss forces the fourth foul of De Nicolao but in the same situation shortly after end also Lawal and Jones with Sakota that scores 5 consecutive points (with another triple) to take the +4 for Varese. Datome tries to respond but don't find the aim (still without 3 points shoots scored) and, after the usual alley-oop Goss for Lawal (out next for five fouls like is teammates Czyz and Jones) Roma is forced to try the comeback without men under the basket. After a series of free throws, the block of Dunston and the 3 points of Green Varese, at 37', is again with 8 points of advantage to manage. The hopes of Roma are all in the 2+1 of Taylor but Ere turn off the enthusiasm with the triple of his twenty-first point. Roma tries again with the all-out pressing that causes the fifth foul of Green but wastes the possibility to return at -5. In the last minute is free throws time, Varese does not commit important errors and, despite the last attempts of Goss and Taylor, closes the game with the blocks of Dunston and Rush reaching the Beko Final 8 final!

Cimberio Varese: Ere 23 pts, Sakota 21 pts (5/7 by 3), Green 11 pts + 8 ass, Dunston 9pts + 6 reb + 5 blk.

Acea Roma: Taylor 20 pts, Goss 19 pts, Jones 9 pts + 11 reb, Datome 11 pts + 8 reb.
