Milano achieve a historic result in the Del Monte Coppa Italia SuperLega. Beating the champions of the last two editions and finalists of the last 5 editions, Lube, on the road 3-1, the team commanded by Roberto Piazza qualified to the Final Four (March 5-6 in Casalecchio di Reno) for the first time ever. It was a surprising result, but not too surprising given that Lube played without Juantorena, Kovář, and Anzani.  American Thomas Jaeschke top-scored Milano with 18 points. The Frenchman Barthélémy Chinenyeze set up 5 blocks and made a 77% attack (10/13).
