Virtus Rome
"It's never easy to win away from home in Europe and we did it with personality, especially in the second half, reacting to the defeat at home last week. It was a race scheduled for 40 minutes, managing strength during the entire game, and 48 hours after the domestic game against Brindisi. In the second half, we did well to put on the court what we wanted, everyone was involved in the best way, both offensively and defensively. Victory is one step forward, which allows us to maintain this positive trend and find the right settling day by day."
