There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in A2.

The most shocking disappointment of round 21 was only one-point a home defeat of 7th ranked Broni (10-11) to eighth ranked Alghero (11-10) 69-68 in the game for the seventh place. The guests trailed by 13 points after three quarters before their 26-12 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Alghero forced 20 Broni turnovers. Naturalized Argentinian forward Alejandra Chesta (187-82, agency: Players Group) stepped up and scored 19 points and 6 rebounds for the winners and point guard Sara Farris (166-85) chipped in 16 points. The best for the losing side was Latvian center Liga Surkusa (194-91) with a double-double by scoring 10 points and 17 rebounds. Alghero moved-up to seventh place in North. Newly promoted Broni dropped to the eighth position with 11 games lost. Alghero are looking forward to face Muggia (#10) at home in the next round. Broni will play against Marghera in Venezia and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Important game to mention about took place in Battipaglia. Fifth ranked Min.Battipaglia (13-6) saved a 1-point victory at home edging 3rd placed S. La Spezia (14-5) 54-53 on Saturday evening. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of S. La Spezia. Dutch Kourtney Treffers (186-94) nailed a double-double by scoring 27 points and 11 rebounds for the winning side and Giovanna Granieri accounted for 15 points and 7 steals. International center Maria Laterza (190-89, college: Marist, agency: Two Points) came up with 13 points and 7 rebounds for S. La Spezia in the defeat. Min.Battipaglia have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain fifth place in South with 13-6 record. S. La Spezia at the other side keeps the third position with five games lost. They share it with Napoli S.Dike.
The game between Top Four teams took place in San Martino di L. Second ranked host San Martino (18-3) smashed 4th placed TEC-MAR Crema (13-8) 78-47. The best player for the winners was Martina Sandri who scored 14 points and 7 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was Magdalena Losi who recorded 18 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. San Martino have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain second place in North with 18-3 record having just two points less than leader Umana Reyer. Newly promoted TEC-MAR Crema keeps the fourth position with eight games lost. San Martino will meet Udine (#5) on the road in the next round. TEC-MAR Crema will play against San Salvatore and hope to secure a win.
A2 top team - Umana Reyer (20-1) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed twelfth ranked Valmadrera (6-15) in Venezia 92-49. It was a good game for Simina Mandache who led her team to a victory with 20 points and 7 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Umana Reyer have an impressive series of sixteen victories in a row. Newly promoted Umana Reyer maintains first place in North with 20-1 record. Valmadrera lost fifth consecutive game. Valmadrera at the other side, also newcomer in the league, keeps the twelfth position with 15 games lost. Umana Reyer's next round opponent will be Virtus Cagliari (#11) on the road and are hoping to win another game. Valmadrera will play against Biassono and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
A2 top team - Ragusa (19-1) had no problems winning another game on Saturday. This time they crushed thirteenth ranked Consum.it Siena (0-20) 82-33. Peli Papamichail stepped up with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 17 rebounds for the winners. Consum.it Siena's coach gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. The victory was the fifth consecutive win for Ragusa. They maintain first place in South with 19-1 record. Consum.it Siena lost their twentiethth game in a row. They still closes the standings with 20 games lost.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 21:
In North Cremona was destroyed by Muggia on the opponent's court 75-49. Biassono unfortunately lost to Marghera in a home game 48-63. Udine recorded a loss to Cagliari V. on the road 43-53. San Salvatore was crushed by Milano on its own court 47-83.

Group North
San Martino - Crema 78-47

The game between Top Four teams took place in San Martino di L. Second ranked host San Martino (18-3) smashed 4th placed TEC-MAR Crema (13-8) 78-47. The game without a history. San Martino led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. San Martino forced 26 TEC-MAR Crema turnovers. The best player for the winners was the former international power forward Martina Sandri (185-88) who scored 14 points and 7 rebounds. Guard Erika Aleotti (172-80) chipped in 18 points and 4 steals.

Muggia - Cremona 75-49

Rather expected game when 13th ranked Cremona (4-17) was crushed on the road by tenth ranked Muggia (8-13) 75-49 on Saturday. The game without a history. Muggia led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Muggia outrebounded Cremona 50-21 including a 18-5 advantage in offensive rebounds. Slovenian power forward Ana Ljubenovic (182-88) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 17 rebounds for the winners and guard Annalisa Borroni (183-83) chipped in 24 points and 8 rebounds. Four Muggia players scored in double figures. The best for the losing side was power forward Marta Scarsi (182-95) with 11 points and 6 rebounds and forward Benedetta Racchetti (174-92) scored 10 points and 4 steals. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Muggia moved-up to ninth place in North, which they share with San Salvatore. Cremona lost their fourth game in a row. Newly promoted team keeps the thirteenth position with 17 games lost. Muggia will face higher ranked Alghero (#7) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Cremona will play against Milano (#3).

Cremona: M.Scarsi 11+6reb, B.Racchetti 10+3reb, G.Maffenini 6+1reb+1ast, R.Colico 6+3ast, G.Bona 6+4reb+1ast, C.Zagni 4+1reb

Umana Reyer - Valmadrera 92-49

A2 top team - Umana Reyer (20-1) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed twelfth ranked Valmadrera (6-15) in Venezia 92-49. The game without a history.

Guard Francesca Melchiori (175-93) contributed with 14 points (perfect from the field making all six shots) for the winners. Four Umana Reyer players scored in double figures.

Umana Reyer have an impressive series of sixteen victories in a row. Newly promoted Umana Reyer maintains first place in North with 20-1 record. Valmadrera lost fifth consecutive game.

Biassono - Marghera 48-63

Very predictable result when sixth ranked Marghera (12-9) defeated on the road 14th ranked Biassono (1-20) 63-48 on Saturday. It was a very close game until the last quarter, when Marghera's pressure prevailed and they won that period 20-9 extending their advantage to 15 points. They also forced 24 Biassono turnovers. Power forward Alice Romagnoli (190-84) stepped up and scored 16 points, 8 rebounds and 5 blocks for the winners and forward Lucia Ferri (182-85) chipped in 9 points and 9 rebounds. The best for the losing side was Flavia Castorani with 15 points and 7 rebounds and swingman Sara Canova (174-89) scored 9 points and 7 rebounds.

Marghera will face Broni (#8) at home in the next round. Biassono will play against Valmadrera (#12) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Cagliari V. - Udine 53-43

There was an upset when higher ranked Udine (12-9) was defeated on the road by twelfth ranked Virtus Cagliari (7-14) 53-43 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Virtus Cagliari. Udine was better in third quarter 12-7. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Virtus Cagliari forced 31 Udine turnovers. Power forward Giulia Rulli (185-91) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 12 points and 10 rebounds for the winners and naturalized Argentinian guard Laura Nicolini (174-75) chipped in 15 points and 4 assists. The best for the losing side was guard Debora Vicenzotti (181-89) with 23 points and 5 rebounds (on 9-of-10 shooting from the field) and point guard Federica Pozzecco (170-93) scored 9 points. The victory was the fourth consecutive win for Virtus Cagliari. They moved-up to eleventh place in North. Loser Udine keeps the fifth position with nine games lost. Virtus Cagliari will face league's leader Umana Reyer in Venezia in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Udine will play at home against the league's second-placed San Martino (#2) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.

San Salvatore - Milano 47-83

Everything went according to plan when third ranked Milano (17-4) outscored on the road 9th ranked San Salvatore (8-13) 83-47 on Saturday. The game without a history. Milano led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 56 of its points in the paint compared to San Salvatore's 32. Milano forced 27 San Salvatore turnovers and had a 26-15 advantage in offensive rebounds.

Five Milano players scored in double figures. The best for the losing side was point guard Anna Lussu (163-85) with 11 points and Bulgarian forward Roksana Yordanova (184-84) scored 3 points and 9 rebounds. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. The victory was the sixth consecutive win for Milano. They maintain third place in North with 17-4 record having just three points less than leader Umana Reyer. Newly promoted San Salvatore keeps the ninth position with 13 games lost. Milano will face Cremona (#13) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. San Salvatore will play against TEC-MAR Crema (#4).

Viterbo - Calabria 48-55

We cannot really consider it an upset in the game between close teams when 10th ranked Viterbo (5-14) was defeated at home by eleventh ranked Calabria (5-14) 55-48 on Saturday. Viterbo was tied after three quarters but could not keep up in the last quarter eventually losing the game.
