Nazionale A Round 35: Naturhouse Ferrara defeats leader Torino - Apr 25, 2013

The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute susprises and upsets. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games.

The most surprising game was another loss of top-ranked Torino (23-8) on the court of fourteenth ranked Naturhouse Ferrara on Thursday night. Visitors were defeated by Naturhouse Ferrara 76-68. The hosts trailed by 3 points after three quarters before their 23-12 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Naturhouse Ferrara forced 21 Torino turnovers. 35 personal fouls committed by Torino helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Power forward Michele Benfatto (205-85) orchestrated the victory by scoring 16 points and 9 rebounds. Guard Michele Ferri (191-85) contributed with 19 points for the winners. point guard Lorenzo Gergati (188-84) answered with 22 points and 6 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) for Torino. Torino's coach Stefano Pillastrini rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Newly promoted Naturhouse Ferrara maintains fourteenth place with 14-18 record. Torino lost fourth consecutive game. They still keep top position with eight games lost. Naturhouse Ferrara are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Bologna (#19) in Ozzano Emilia in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Torino will play at home against the league's second-placed Matera (#2) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
Important game to mention about took place in Castelletto. Seventh ranked Omegna (18-14) saved a 3-point victory on the road edging 3rd placed Castelletto (18-14) 70-67 in the fight for the third place. It was a great evening for naturalized Georgian Nika Metreveli (211-91, agency: Interperformances) who led his team to a victory scoring 24 points and 9 rebounds (perfect from the field making all nine shots !!!). Mohamed Toure helped adding 16 points and 6 rebounds (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line). Center Marco Pazzi (203-79) responded with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 10 rebounds. Omegna have an impressive series of five victories in a row. They moved-up to third place, which they share with Casalpusterlengo and Castelletto. Omegna will play against Recanati (#12) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Castelletto will play against Mirandola (#13) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
An interesting game was also surprising road defeat of 5th ranked Agrigento in a game versus Treviglio (#8) 65-60. It was an exceptional evening for Davide Reati who led the winners and scored 18 points and 4 steals. Albano Chiarastella came up with 12 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists for Agrigento in the defeat.
