Another playoff win, another wonderful game played by Reyer Venezia. Winning game 4 in Pistoia, Jeff Viggiano and friends secured their semifinals spot.

“We have been surprised to see Tyrus McGee on court” revealed Pistoia coach Vincenzo Esposito – “Anyway we tried to find a solution, but we did not stop Venezia”. The point is that Venezia coach Walter De Raffaele chosed the guard McGee, instead of the center Estaeban Batista, who is set to play semifinals game 1 on friday versus Avellino.

Venezia – Avellino and Milano – Trento are the two semifinals series of Italian Serie A, now named LBA. Also in Italy marketing works everyday to produce useless changes in our life.
