The Regular Season in A2 is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 3 rounds.

Leader Umana Reyer delivered the twentieth second win on Saturday night. This time they crushed 13th ranked Cremona (4-19) 83-51 in Venezia. The game without a history. Umana Reyer led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Cremona to just 7 points in third quarter. Umana Reyer forced 27 Cremona turnovers and outrebounded them 42-30 including 17 on the offensive glass. The best player for the winners was Romanian forward Simina Mandache (185-81) who scored 19 points and 8 rebounds. International guard Alessandra Formica (186-93) chipped in 16 points and 8 rebounds. Forward Giulia Maffenini (174-92, agency: Two Points) produced 18 points and 4 steals for the guests. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Umana Reyer (22-1) have an impressive series of eighteen victories in a row. Newly promoted Umana Reyer maintains first place in North. Cremona lost sixth consecutive game. Cremona at the other side, also newcomer in the league, keeps the thirteenth position with 19 games lost. Umana Reyer are looking forward to face Udine (#7) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. Cremona will play against Virtus Cagliari (#12) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Leader Ragusa recorded the twentieth first victory. This time they beat 5th ranked Min.Battipaglia (14-7) 60-48. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Min.Battipaglia. Naturalized Serbian guard Milica Micovic (182-84, agency: Players Group) orchestrated the victory by scoring 19 points and 8 rebounds. Paola Mauriello contributed with 12 points for the winners. Dutch Kourtney Treffers (186-94) answered with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 14 rebounds for Min.Battipaglia. The victory was the seventh consecutive win for Ragusa. They maintain first place in South with 21-1 record. Min.Battipaglia at the other side keeps the fifth position with seven games lost. Ragusa will play against College Italia (#12) in Roma in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Min.Battipaglia will play on the road against Napoli S.Dike (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Bologna was also quite interesting. Second ranked T. La Spezia (18-3) played at the court of 7th ranked Meccanica NB (11-10). T. La Spezia managed to secure a 6-point victory 64-58 on Sunday. It was a great evening for Sara Giorgi who led her team to a victory scoring 8 points and 12 rebounds. Dominique Allen responded with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 13 rebounds. The victory was the third consecutive win for T. La Spezia. They maintain second place in South with 18-3 record having six points less than leader Umana Reyer. Loser Meccanica NB keeps the seventh position with ten games lost. T. La Spezia will meet at home Calabria (#10) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Meccanica NB will play against Salerno and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Muggia, where 7th ranked Udine (12-11) lost to tenth ranked Muggia (9-14) in a road game 57-73. It was an exceptional evening for Annalisa Borroni who led the winners and scored 39 points (!!!) and 8 rebounds. Muggia's coach Matjia Jogan allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Muggia moved-up to ninth place in North. Udine lost their fourth game in a row. They dropped to the sixth position with 11 games lost. Muggia's next round opponent will be league's second-placed San Martino in San Martino di L and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

Other games of round 23 were very predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
In North San Martino crushed San Salvatore in San Martino di L 79-50. Milano beat Alghero at home 71-59. Cagliari V. lost to Broni on the opponent's court 58-67. Valmadrera unfortunately lost to Marghera in a home game 39-44. Crema managed to beat Biassono on the road 62-45.
