Andrea Giovi (Sir Safety Perugia): “We wasted a good opportunity to get points. We did have a few ups and downs but we’ve always been in it. Unfortunately, we were punished in the clutch time, where we had to be tougher”.
Davide Marra (Copra Elior Piacenza): “We knew it was going to be a difficult game. They played well, especially in the block-dig area, but we have done well to stay close all the time and eventually clinch it. Now we’ll have a tough month ahead of us with many big games. We’ll face one at a time and give it our best shot every time”.
