Basketball, Serie B
Virtus Kleb (photo) goes back to 10 points in the standings and moves away from the dangerous area. The victory against Green Basket Palermo came after more than a month, the last success was now dated January 10, and can only do well for the biancazzurri. Coach Antonio Bocchino had to give up the feverish Fabio Stefanini and made substantial changes to the starting quintet by adding the young Simon, Idrissou and Ianelli. New schemes and a great desire to win were the driving factors. Says the coach from Ragusa: “I saw a team that cares about their jersey and that fought to the end to bring the positive result into their coffers. It was a match that we were able to manage in all parts of the game and in which we fought without sparing ourselves for the final outcome. The work done this week has paid off. Behind there is a great team work and at the same time there is a great individual technical work that adds value to everyone’s sacrifice in this club. Now we must not let our guard down and stay focused for the next matches which will be crucial ”.
The first challenge is on Sunday on the Sangiorgese parquet which is just 2 points behind the Ragusans and who will want to take advantage of the field factor to hook Virtus in the standings. Virtus’ last victory before the negative streak was against the Lombards at PalaPadua for 70-63.
