The 3rd place finish on 12 contentendi is a complete victory, and was rightly celebrated as such by our Debutant, surrounded by their parents! able to "to group" likewise, on the sideline and out, giving to their children that extra push that proved to be decisive. Not by chance, the guys in the field have "that group" in the same way ...
We insist, Once again, on what matters most for us. Having seen kids happy, excited, loads. And especially united, They have passed the ball like never before, proving to be able to make that step forward (despite Ivan There has lost his voice ...), and will be the new point of ... Reboot!
Mostly, the boys and their parents welcomed in the best way the two "foreigners" come to reinforce the roster, Lexi Callueng (class 2008) e Vuk Scepanovic (class 2007). It does not matter if you speak only English, if they came from different countries (Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is Podgorica, Montenegro) and a completely different basketball (big balloon and rules to the youth sector, and it makes a big difference).
From the first moment, Lexi & wolf They were the best welcome from their "Italian teammates", as well as parents of the first (Alexander ed Evangelina) and the mother and sister of the second (May e My) I have been just as our "Italian parents"... Unforgettable lunch Casa Zanni Villa Verucchio, as well as the emotion at the time when, the night before the final, in the hotel lobby around the group he has delivered to the two boys t-shirt of the Adriatic Coast, autographed by all teammates!
