Olimpia led from wire to wire, winning, dominating the Varese game, 93-69, after leading by as many as 30 points. Olimpia extended progressively its lead, looked always in control, made its shots and founf a lot of energy across the roster. Riccardo Moraschini, who didn’t play two nights earlier against FC Barcelona, led all the scorers with 17 points and four threes. Paul Biligha, coming off the bench, made all his four shots. Both were rewarded by Coach Ettore Messina at the end. “They deserved the credit for the win, they gave us the opportunity not to play Luis Scola and limiting Sergio Rodriguez’s minutes. They were ready, that was my dream in the summer. That’s the reason why we looked athletically sharp, in top shape. We also made a lot of threes, it won’t happen often, but still they were open shots against a terrific defense, a team I have a lot of respect for. I saw their game, how they dismantled Brindisi or stayed in the game in Bologna,”, he said. Messina opted to rest Kaleb Tarczewski, along Michael Roll and Aaron White, the team punded the ball down to Arturas Gudaitis early, then after a couple of minutes, Moraschini began his shooting show and Olimpia took an early 7-0 lead, never looked back and closed the fourth quarter among the cheers.
