Pianigiani wants to see courage and a team willing to sacrifice


Coach Simone Pianigiani talked about the upcoming CSKA game in Milan: “They are simply the best team in the EuroLeague, because their overall talent, the many options that they have, they have the most efficient offense in the league, they are the best three-point shooting team and their switching defense is terrific since bigs like Hines and Hunter can strangle everybody with their combination of quickness and size. On top of that they come off two losses, including the one in their domestic league, and this is very rare. So they coming after us with a purpose. We’ll have to play with courage and ready to sacrifice ourselves in order to stay close and play a game of substance before our crowd. It’s necessary for us to get something from a lot of different players, we’ll every ounce of energy and resource”.
