Basketball, the best Italians of the 25th matchday of Serie A. Aradori keeps Fortitudo alive, Della Valle runs towards the MVP


The 25th day of the Serie A 2021-2022 championship is also on file , and in an Italian key the protagonists are often also the men, if not a symbol, at least of the first breath for the teams involved in the various fights. In particular, there are three great performances that must be fully underlined.

The first is that of Pietro Aradori, who tries to get the Fortitudo Bologna out of the murky waters of the relegation zone. And, at least in the challenge won against Vanoli Cremona, he does so, finding his best version: 27 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 6/10 of three and the undoubted title of MVP of the round in a tricolor key. All this despite the absence of Gabriele Procida, even if heavier for Vanoli it turned out to be that of Peppe Poeta, who in some ways left Matteo Spagnolo more alone, albeit good at 15 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists and with the confidence of his comrades in any case intact.

Amedeo Della Valle ‘s race for the MVP title of the regular season continues: Brescia’s third place is no longer in question, and against Trento he signs another of those very solid performances: 16 points, 3 rebounds and 6 assists . This is enough for him to contribute to the great success of Germani on the Dolomiti Energia, which is increasingly at risk of having to fight not to go down to A2.

Basketball, Euroleague: Bertomeu “calls out” the Russian teams. Spiraglio Virtus Bologna?

And despite the defeat in Reggio Emilia against Venice, the great season of Andrea Cinciarini continues, who this time does not reach us in double double, but writes on the scoreboard 14 points and 9 assists: almost normalcy now. As for Reyer, however, Jeff Brooks is doing well at 13 points and 8 rebounds.

Scattered throughout the Serie A are also other games well played by Italians: there are the 18 of Bruno Mascolo as a “losing effort” in the defeat of Tortona against Pesaro, the pairing Andrea Zerini-Luca Vitali which on the one hand offers solidity under the basket (12 points and 5 rebounds) and on the other versatility (5, 6 and 4 assists) in the external shot of Napoli in Treviso. For the tricolors of the big names, little glory, a little for physical problems (Gigi Datome), a little because the accelerator cannot always be held down.
