For 20 minutes Olimpia Milano (down 41 – 33) was facing the back of Capo D’Orlando on the road. Despite improving themselves in the third quarter (53-53), the reigning Italian champs still didn’t feel secure.

However, coach Repesa’s players got the job done in the premiere of the league, winning 71 – 65 and preventing falling victims to an upset.

Krunoslav Simon confirmed that he is by far the hottest player currently wearing the jersey of “Red Shoes”, finishing the match with 17 points 6 rebounds. Milan Macvan “touched” the double-double with 11 points and 9 assists.

Orlandina Basket didn’t have the proper consistency in its performance needed to achieve a victory against such an opponent. Dominique Archie scored 17 points and grabbed 7 rebounds, while Bruno Ftipado had 13 points.
