It seems almost obvious that Givova Scafati will be the first seed to come out of the red group, but this afternoon OraSì are ready to put a spoke in the wheels of the Campania region. Over time, Ravenna has carved out the role of the most accredited pursuer of the Scafati steamroller and can have a say in a direct comparison.
Two balls tonight at 5 p.m. on the Pala de André floor with live television on MS Sport (channel 402 of digital terrestrial). OraSì wants to keep one of the top three places in the standings and with 6 games still to play, there are many points at stake. Beating Scafati would therefore be a good step forward both as an injection of confidence and to put more ground between him and the direct pursuers. But it will certainly not be easy since the team coached by Alessandro Rossi rightly excels in almost all statistics and shows in every game that they have no weaknesses.
“We face the leaders – these are the words of coach Alessandro Lotesoriere – who leads the championship with all the merit and with a mentality that has shown itself even more in this last period, where in the post-Covid recovery it has managed to put together two level performances and win as many games in a few days. A team very well shaped by their coach, with a lot of arrows in their quiver”.
Coach Rossi rotates the ten elements at his disposal, keeping the minutes low and thus receiving heartwarming responses from all the members. In this, the similarity with the OraSì is obvious. Lotesoriere also carefully doses his own minutes and receives good responses from everyone. “We are veterans of the good performance of Chiusi but we know that to try to play with Scafati we will have to do a lot more, because the opponent and the level of the match require it. We have prepared with the aim of try to put in a good performance, hoping it coincides with winning. In such matches, you have to give your all and play our best game, knowing that it might not be enough.”
The team also expects the contribution of its sixth man, the public, who have never failed in this type of challenge. “With one hundred percent capacity, we expect a lot of fans because it’s the match of the day. These guys deserve a full building and great support, to keep giving emotions”. All boys from the Giallorossi youth sector and athletes from other basketball clubs in the province will be present.
During the day, various charitable initiatives are planned: from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the outdoor square of Pala De André, an extraordinary collection of food and basic necessities will be active in favor of refugees and people welcomed in the area , promoted by the Ravenna CSI; a lottery organized by the Byzantine Lions which gives away Easter eggs, in collaboration with Ortopedia Spadoni and Macelleria Gabelli, partners of Basket Ravenna.
