Olimpia took Game 4 over right from the start and never looked back in a 94-80 win


Five minutes have been enough. Olimpia made its first seven possessions fruitful including three three-pointers, took a huge lead in the first period and never looked back in a convincing 94-80 win in Pesaro. The margin was bigger throughout the game and essentially Pesaro never threatened the outcome. Olimpia closed the series out 3-1 and moved on to the semifinal series versus Sassari that will begin next Saturday in Milano. “We played with personality, erasing the weak game we had two days earlier. It was a complete game and we had some great individual performances”, Coach Ettore Messina said. Shavon Shields had his best game since coming back from his early season injury. He scored 25 points, made his first six attempts and was all over the place. Shabazz Napier was sensational. He made his first three of the game and made sure everybody got good looks. Finally Nik Melli, Johannes Voigtmann and Kyle Hines were dominant inside. Voigtmann was huge at shooting, Hines was big inside and Melli set the tone inside.
