QAT M: Milos Nikic moves to Al Rayyan SC

Great player, one of the main stars from the last Modena team who won the Italian Championship. Played in Italy, Russia, Poland, Turkey, Argentina. Due to ACL injury, he had to pause for 1 year. Good luck Milos, come back next season where you belong... Reply

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

Modena is on the roll. After Lube, they conquered Trentino and shown they will be formidable opponent in play-offs.
Something is wrong in Trentino land. Same players as last year but much worse results. Something will have to change soon, either results or coach... Reply

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

This was a terrific match to watch. High level players everywhere. Christenson is having the best year of his career in my opinion. Anderson was good early, Zaytzev was great late amd Holt was automatic in the middle.
Trentino needs a complete lineup soon. Russell was the best player this match for both teams. Whoever is going to get this him next year is going to be lucky.
Can't wait for these playoffs. Reply
