BOLOGNA-VARESE: THE PRESS ROOM

«We are living through a thrilling moment this year. We have done well in many games but winning here in Bologna, on a historic court such as PalaDozza, is fantastic. Taking home the 2 points today went beyond our highest expectations. With a defensive team and exceptional character, however, we never gave up and we never felt demoralized. Even in difficult times, when Virtus got high quality baskets, we were very good at keeping up our defensive level. Today Bologna put us in trouble and even in attack we weren’t as fluid as usual. When, however, Segafredo took a step back, we resumed our pace and put our noses to the basketball grindstone. Our gratitude has to go to Tyler Larson Tonight – when Virtus got the upper hand, he was very good at pulling us back into the game by grouping his baskets. When we then got back, other lead players came to the fore. Today, seeing our team with 5 players in double figures, and seeing what we did in defence, fills us with pride. On a day like this, we are truly very satisfied with what we have done».
