Thanks to Pascolo (17 points, 5 rebounds), Ricky Hickman (16 points, 4 assists) and Milan Macvan (12 points), the champs reacted well enough to take what they wanted perhaps easier than expected, given how their previous lackluster performances.

Trento fell behind 11 – 21 in the first period and was constantly trailing for the remainder of the match. Dustin Hogue had 16 points plus 6 rebounds and Diego Flaccadori 14 points along with 6 boards.
