Casalpusterlengo - Latina Basket 75-67

Very predictable result when ninth ranked Casalpusterlengo (12-10) defeated at home 15th ranked Latina Basket (9-16) 75-67. The hosts were already 12 points ahead at halftime and as many as 14 after three quarters before a 19-13 last quarter charge of Latina Basket cut the lead to 75-67 at the end of the game. Casalpusterlengo forced 20 Latina Basket turnovers and outrebounded them 39-26 including 27 on the defensive glass. Point guard Roberto Prandin (188-86, agency: Two Points) notched 20 points and 5 rebounds to lead the effort and power forward Alberto Chiumenti (204-87, agency: Players Group) supported him with 12 points and 11 rebounds. Five Casalpusterlengo players scored in double figures. Casalpusterlengo's coach Andrea Zanchi allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Even 18 points and 5 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) by power forward Alessandro Cecchetti (200-91) did not help to save the game for Latina Basket. Naturalized Argentinian swingman Manuel Carrizo (198-80, agency: Players Group) added 16 points and 5 rebounds for the guests. Casalpusterlengo have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Bari. Latina Basket at the other side keeps the fifteenth position with 16 games lost. Casalpusterlengo will play against higher ranked Omegna (#4) at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Latina Basket will play against Firenze (#13) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
