By Eurohoops Team/

Just as it was looking suitable for Milano after they got a win in Belgrade against Crvena Zvezda after nine losses in EuroLeague, now another unexpected loss. In round 11 of the national championship, Trento held on till the end 77-75. This is the second loss for Milan in Lega A this season.

Diego Flaccadori led the home team with 19 points, five rebounds, and six assists.  Drew Crawford followed with 13.

In a losing effort, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrotscored 17 points.

An incredible start for Trento set the tone for the game.  From the jump ball, Trento had more energy and a big 14-point lead in the fourth quarter. Everybody that the game was finished. But a big push for Ettore Messin’s squad made things interesting, but Trento won fair and square.

Virtus Bologna had no trouble against Brescia 89-77. Leading all the way, Bologna inked its 10th win this season. Kyle Weems scored 14 points, and Mouhammadou Jaiteh added 13, just like Tornike Shengelia.
