EA7 Emporio Armani Milan struggled until the end against a physical and well-coached Germani Brescia, but then managed to get away with the 78-77 victory thanks to a great fourth-quarter run (31-19).

Nicolò Melli was the MVP of the game, producing a performance of 14 points and 9 rebounds, with the decisive block against Kenny Gabriel in the latest seconds of the match. John Petrucelli’s 19 points weren’t enough for the opponents.

Virtus Bologna started the season with a road win by beating Napoli 89-77 as Jordan Mickey scored 23 points. It was a huge come-back win, as Virtus was trailing but 22 and managed to ultimately get the win.
