Basketball B league, Luiss Roma beats Salerno and flies in the standings
Another victory for Luiss Roma who, after the two great winning runs in Ruvo and Caserta, also rule Salerno 84-73 on Sunday 22 January. The university team thus rises in the standings to 26 and proves to be the team in the best form in the whole of Serie B.
Luiss led by Legnini and Pasqualin got off to a great start on the field who, thanks to a super team defense, immediately detached their opponents with a 15-3 run. Paccariè’s boys grind their game and run to 23-5 with a daring penetration by Legnini. Fallucca follows him and with two stratospheric triples brings Luiss up 29-5. The first quarter ends 31-10. And the game is scored.
Luiss is in shape and it can be seen from the confidence the boys find on the pitch. Another triple from Legnini and we go 40-20. Salerno tries to react by getting a 6-0. We arrive at the end of the first half 45-28.
Luiss accelerates and, in view of the Coppa Italia play-off scheduled for Thursday 26 January in Rieti, saves some energy.
The match remains in full control of Pasqualin and his companions. Allodi dominates under the basket and also signs a triple for 81-65. The match ends with a score of 84-73.
The next match awaiting Luiss Roma, in addition to the play-off in Rieti to enter the Final Four of the Italian Cup, is then the delicate match against Roseto on Sunday 29 January.
