Dolomiti Energia Trento soars into Last 32 thanks to Pascolo, Wright

Dolomiti Energia Trento racked up its third straight victory – and second on the road – to claim a spot in the Eurocup Eightfinals in its first season in the competition. Trento pulled away in the second half to defeat host Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia 72-84. The victory boosted Trento to a 4-1 mark in Group K of the Last 32, while dropping Reggio Emilia to 2-3. The hosts trailed by 5 early in the third quarter when Julian Wright led Trento on a 0-18 run, during which he scored 7 and assisted on another 7 points! Reggio Emilia never recovered from that. Davide Pascolo missed just 2 shots while scored 25 for the winners, Trent Lockett added 19 points, Diego Flaccadori scored netted 11 points and Wright finished with 10 points and 6 assists. Achille Polonara shot 4 for 4 from downtown in accruing 18 points for the hosts. Amedeo Della Valle added 13 points and Pietro Aradori had 12 in defeat.

Polonara scored the first 5 points for Reggio Emilia, but a three-point play by Pascolo gave Tento its first lead, 5-6. Flaccadori added a three for the visitors, but Aradori pushed the hosts to a 9-9 tie. Flaccadori and Pascolo put Trento back ahead briefly, but Darjus Lavrinovic scored 4 straight points to push Reggio Emilia to a 15-13 edge. The lead swayed back and forth again before Lockett split free throws to tie it and Pascolo made it 18-20 after 10 minutes in which he scored 10 points. The teams continued trading jabs in the first few minutes of the second quarter before Lockett and Pascolo made it 24-31. After a Jamarr Sanders triple and a basket-plus-foul from Pascolo, the difference was up to 9 points. Wright’s offensive rebound and assist to Lockett took the lead to double figures, 30-41. Vladimir Veremeenko and Aradori came alive to bring Reggio Elia back, but a last-second three by Lockett ended the half at 39-46.

Aradori scored the first basket of the second half, but then watched his team get shut out for four minutes, while Trento went on a 0-18 run, during which Wright scored 7 and assisted on another 7 points! Polonaro snapped the Reggio Emilia drought with a triple and Della Valle soon added another, but even so the visitors reached the end of the third quarter with a comfortable 52-70 lead. Pascolo and Lockett scored the first points of the final stanza to show again that they were in total control. Polonana hit a pair of threes to cut the gap to 61-75, but Lockett ensured that the host did not get closer than 12 the rest of the way.

Head Coaches

MENETTI, MASSIMILIANO
Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia
" We couldn’t make the game we wanted, we wanted to bring home this victory, but everything went wrong. We did not impose our rhythm, we struggled in defense and offense and this thing emotionally displaced us. Our team needs everyone at the top, but today everyone struggled and the result was a negative game. We managed to finish in the best possible way, thanks to the support of our fans who understood that we were trying to do our best. Now we have to focus on the next game, we have to try to win in Izmir."
BUSCAGLIA, MAURIZIO
Dolomiti Energia Trento
"This was a beautiful victory, the result of a game in which, we managed to be consistent for 40 minutes. I do not think we had won twice in a row against Reggio Emilia. After having always lost before here, this has a special meaning."

"We played a bad game, we were never able to achieve the things that we set. Fortunately, the qualification is still possible so we have to focus on the [Italian League] game against Capo d’Orlando next Sunday and then leave for Turkey, and go for broke."
PASCOLO, DAVIDE
Dolomiti Energia Trento
"We got a very important victory at a difficult court where we had never won before and we earned a place in the next round. The key to the win was out transition game."
