Virtus Bologna had complaints from the referees of the game against Olympiacos, which became formal in a letter sent to the EuroLeague.
That’s the formal reaction of the Italian club about the mistakes made in the closing minutes of the game which made coach Sergio Scariolo to “flip”.
As he said: “Coaches and players make mistakes. Especially in the last minutes, I don’t remember such a huge series of refereeing mistakes, and I’m quite old. I rewatched everything and I’m flipping. But referees also do mistakes”.
It remains to be seen if there will be any reaction from the EuroLeague on the issue.
It has to be noted that while there were questionable calls for both sides, Virtus is protesting for a very harsh foul called on Semi Ojeleye that led to Milos Teodosic receiving two technicals and being fouled out.
