Following on last week’s home win against Treviso, Virtus Bologna managed to beat Brescia 00-00 in order to go up alone in the Italian league standings at a 7-1 record mainly thanks to its Georgian dominator and the Danish surprise of the season.
Tornike Shengelia keeps on dominating, ending the encounter as MVP of the game with an incredible stat line of 27 points, 6 rebounds, and 7 assists, drawing 7 fouls and shooting almost perfectly at the line with 10/11. He ended with a 7/11 from two-point range.
Being out of the team under Sergio Scariolo at the beginning of the season, Iffe Lundberg continues his good momentum after being decisive in the EuroLeague derby over Milan. The former CSKA Moscow and Phoenix Suns guard dropped 19 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists.
Coming off the bench for Alessandro Magro’s team, CJ Massinburg had a standout losing effort of 27 points and 4 rebounds while shooting 8/8 inside the area and 5/7 from free throws. Miro Bilan went close to a double-double with 12 points and 7 rebounds.
Earlier in the weekend, Milano managed to bounce back after losing in Round 7 against Scafati with a 23-point deficit victory at home against Reyer Venice.
