B League basketball: LUISS beats also Valmontone
A good performance of Paccariè’s boys allows LUISS to defeat at home Valmontone 74-67 and reach 8 points in the standings after 6 days.

Martino and a triple of Veccia give the 50-40 LUISS at minute 23. Valmontone tries to react, but a dunk by Bonaccorso sends the LUISS fans into raptures giving the maximum advantage on the +12,
Grilli and Pierangeli don’t give up and with important baskets take Valmontone on the minus 5: 55-50. A triple of Livelli shortens to minus 3. Bonaccorso comes back on and with 2 baskets brings the LUISS back on +8. Bisconti from Valmontone the minus 5 to 2 minutes from the end, but first Veccia and then Faragalli close it with merit on 74-67.
Next Saturday the LUISS flies to Catania to continue its winning streak.
