So Lino Lardo. “Here in Cividale we have worked hard and well, also changing several players, and tonight we got the answers we wanted. The chemistry cannot be maximum but the girls are looking for each other and have the right face: in the first half we suffered too much in defense but after the long interval we kept them at 30 points. We made three Italians make their debut today, the list continues to grow and we can only be satisfied. Now Spain, an even more complicated match but we will try to take another step forward ”.

Verona, Fassina, Penna, Madera, Andrè are the quintet chosen by Lino Lardo and immediately the Azzurre push on the accelerator producing an effervescent first quarter of 30 points and nine players to score. The great protagonist is Fassina with 8 points in an amen, Slovenia remains in contact thanks to the penetrations of Oblak and the triples of Jakovina.

Italy sees its percentages in attack drop at the start of the second quarter but keeps Slovenia fasting for 3 minutes and also extends to +11 at 37-26, then a couple of turnovers bring the two teams back together (39-37 ) with the 5 consecutive Lisec. The blaze of Penna makes the Italians breathe (44-39) and at the long interval it goes up to 48-40.

The umpteenth magic of Penna brings us back to the double-digit advantage (51-40) but in the third quarter for Slovenia Oblak takes the chair, his triple of 59-54. Pastrello and Attura stamp the new extension (66-54) after 1 minute of the last quarter and then it is again Fassina (triple and counterattack) who keeps Lisec and his teammates at a distance (71-59). To close the account is an excellent Penna with the 8-meter triple which is worth +18, then in the final minutes the Azzurre manage the score without problems.
