Olimpia led wire to wire, beat Cremona 86-62 and move on in the Italy Cup


Olimpia led wire to wire, in a dominating performance in the Italy Cup quarterfinal game against Cremona. Milan hit the ground running, went up 13-0, then 20-2 and 23-4, never looked back and won 86-62. Cremona tried to comeback a couple of times, getting back within five in the second quarter and six in the third, but Olimpia found a way to respond every single time. “Our shooting percentages were sometimes good, sometimes not so good, but our defense was always there. We had a very good defensive outing holding them about twenty points below their season average. Obviously, they helped us, but I feel like we had a very good defensive game, a clean game overall,” Coach Ettore Messina said at the end. Cinciarini spent himself guarding Michele Ruzzier, but had an overall great game with nine points, three assists and seven rebounds. Olimpia had a lor from a lot of players: Kaleb Tarczewski was his usual dominating self, with 14 points, nine rebounds in 23 minutes of actions, while Amedeo Della Valle had a 13-point in 13 minutes night. Olimpia closed the game for good early in the fourth quarter with a run that included two free throws by Keifer Sykes and a four-point play by Della Valle.
