Sassari eliminate Venezia after an epic comeback

After leading with 20 points in the second quarter, Umana Venezia saw already in front of them the semifinals of Coppa Italia. They started to relax and this has cost them the final result of the game. Because Dinamo Sassari is not a team that you can beat easily with a huge margin. They are fighters and what motivates more a fighter? The idea that everything is on the edge and only an extraordinary effort can save the whole situation. And the miracle happened: step by step, Sassari came back into the game and eventually won it with 89-88.

It’s not such a surprise because at this moment Sassari has a full roster, which means 6 foreigners and a lot of good Italians like Gentile, Polonara, Spissu, Devecchi. Many games this season, their roster was not complete due to injuries or because they changed some players. Sometimes their rotation was shorter. But now they had the most competitive roster possible that can face any team in Italy. That doesn’t mean they are better than other teams in Coppa Italia, but the can surprise any squad involved.
