At the initial 4 to 0 Collegno responds present, but Boglio and Airaghi sign a mini break that forces coach Spanu to call a timeout. The biancoblu continue forcing and run away thanks to the plays of the inspired Attademo. Collegno jams in attack and the accuracy of the free throws allows College to escape on +19, 53 to 72 the score with 10′ from the end. In the last fraction Collegno tries to create opportunities for a comeback, College – however – resists and manages the advantage with intelligence and clarity. 66 to 86 the score that delivers the eighth victory in eight games to biancoblu, who mortgage the first place in the group two days in advance.
