The defense carried Olimpia in Pesaro: 78-64


Olimpia used many different options in its win in Pesaro 78-64 including a commanding final quarter by Jordan Theodore and Curtis Jerrells to support the five-dunk second half serial show by Kaleb Tarczewski. But the biggest weapon was defense. Olimpia closed the door inside and outside and had to struggle a little bit in the third quarter because of foul troubles and some silly turnovers. But the fourth quarter belonged entirely to Olimpia playing with no Gudaitis and no Bertans both last minute scratch. “Given the circumnstances I’m happy – Coach Pianigiani said – we wanted to establish our defense and we did. We held them at 31 points in the first half and we said to repeat the effort in the second. And we did. We should’ve been more cynic in the first half when the margin was limited by unforced turnovers”.
