Great performance for Della Valle: «I see a boy who commits himself, who works seriously. He is doing well in attack, patiently choosing his moments, and helping out in defense. Good Fioretti and Tom to put him at ease, and he to do a great job, as in the final on Vildoza. I am impressed, I didn't think he could have this impact: I knew he had room for improvement but, he was good ».
On Shelvin Mack, another good test: "Everyone works very well here individually. The defense today has put us a nice piece, and he, like Della Valle, had a great impact. And he also had an offensive improvement, even if he has the habit of going into the traffic used to the few aids on the weak side of US basketball. Today the Chacho was also heard, with a couple of turnovers that he shouldn't do. One step closer".
On the choices on Shengelia: «Two weeks that made 25 of them per game. It seemed right to us to try to limit it by breaking the rhythm. Once he passed her out, they recovered on the shooters ».
On the calendar: «It becomes more difficult now, with complicated transfers. Be patient, don't look at the rankings, try to collect as many points as possible, where possible. I still have the luck to have players like Chacho, Luis and Roll, very calm, who never go into anxiety ".
On defense: «Of course I'm happy. I've always been branded as a defense lawyer, I'm like Trapattoni, but I don't care. Here you win by fighting over every possession. And people appreciate the commitment of the boys ".
