Women’s Under 19 National Final

Final 1st / 2nd place

Limonta Costa Masnaga – Umana Reyer Venice 83-45

In the first quarter, Umana Reyer Venezia scores only eight points: Valentina Penna in the third minute, Matilde Bianchi in the seventh, Laura Purina and Milica Sekulic in the ninth. In the meantime Limonta Costa Masnaga has already scored 22 with the baskets of Marika Labanca, Vittoria Allievi and Matilde Villa and gives the match the same trend as in the previous five games.

Costa Masnaga is a well-structured team and certainly with taller and bigger players in every sector, which means for each opponent having to make an extra effort physically, raise the parable of shooting, work harder in defense. Together with Matilde and Eleonora Villa (who play together by heart), Vittoria Allievi, Marika Labanca, Beatrice Caloro and Nancy N’Nguessan are among the protagonists and offer a plurality of offensive and defensive situations that create many problems for the opponents on duty. Umana Reyer Venezia is not the sacrificial victim of the last act, beyond what the final score says and with strong commitment she countered blow for blow, playing to the best of her ability, even in moments of greatest crisis. But the game is firmly in the hands of the Lombard, who can rejoice for their second Scudetto in the Under 19.

Final 3rd / 4th place

Geas Sesto San Giovanni – Brixia Brescia 54-57

In the final for third place Virginia Tempia resolves with determination. First with a very appropriate triple (52-54), then with a free throw that gives the final victory (54-57) and third place at Basket Brixia Brescia. Tempia’s baskets (16 points in total) unlock the stall in which Brescia had fallen. In the lead of 15 points in the 33rd minute (36-51) in practice he stops and Geas with the triples of Sofia Moretti and Sara Ronchi and the baskets of Laura Valli returns to the game and leads 52-21 with a break of 16 points. Then Tempia and Zanardi (with two free throws) overturn the result.

Geas remains in contact thanks to the offensive qualities of Sara Ronchi who plays generously, but expensive despite the energetic marking that Lucrezia Scalvini dedicates to her. The geassine seem to be dying out a little at a time, while Brixia, on the other hand, even if tired and less lively, plays in an organized way and progressively increases her advantage until the blackout and the break suffered by 16 points.

Final 1st / 2nd place

Stella Azzurra Rome – College Basketball 99-74

College Basketball opens from the arch, Rome responds from the painting, already outlining the leitmotif of the match. Menalo and his teammates immediately impose very high rhythms dominating under the basket for the 10-5 in the 4 ‘. Despite the authoritarian departure of the capitolians, Di Cerbo’s boys try to get in rhythm, find continuity from the average and bring the match back in a draw (18-18). All to be redone for Rome which increases the defensive intensity, takes advantage of the Piedmontese turnovers and launches the new lunge, taking +10 at the start of the second period. Borgomanero suffers in defense, does not find the push from long distance while Stella Azzurra is lethal even in transition and increases the advantage (41-28 at 15 ‘). D’Arcangeli’s boys conquer space on the PalaPadua parquet and go to the long break on + 16. The inertia of the match does not change in the second half, with Stella Azzurra in full control of the match. Attempts to stem the war machine set up by D’Arcangeli do not have the effects hoped for by Borgomanero who, while fighting and not giving up playing, finds himself down by 26 to 35 ‘. Advantage that remains almost unchanged in the final.

Final 3rd / 4th place

Orange1 Bassano – Clas Renault Don Bosco Livorno 62-74

The final for third and fourth place starts quietly. Bassano and Livorno go shoulder to shoulder until 17-17 without major jolts. The oranges try to break the balance between the first and the second period thanks to the 5 points signed by Brescianini and Mazzotti but Livorno is ready to mend the gap and put its nose forward with Bechi (22-26).

After suffering a 9-0 run, Bassano counterattacks in the name of Sarr and puts the game on a level again. On the way back from the long break, Livorno instead sets the break and goes +10 with Kuuba. Ricci’s boys take their opponents’ measurements, raise the pace and stretch again to the third siren. Bassano’s reaction travels once again on the Brescianini, Marangoni and Sarr train for 59-70 when there are 3 minutes to go.

Kuuba, definitely in the game (25 points), fights under the basket and pushes back the Venetians who no longer have the time and strength to recover.
