The race sees a good start to the guest and after 3 'Bocconcelli signs the 2 to 8, but the locals recover and shortly after Tinsley and De Ros bring the premises back to -1, then at 7 ′ a triple De Ros gives the first internal advantage on 12 to 10 and is the same number 5 of the house to sign shortly after the first mini local extension , but the guests do not give up and in the final seconds the free throws of Leardini and Banchero sign the overtaking and close the first 10 'on the score of 16 to 18.
