Marco Crespi Presents Maccabi Haifa-Montepaschi
21 January Mens Sana House
Montepaschi is in Israel for game 3 of Eurocup’s Last 32, which puts them on court tomorrow at 6:30pm against Maccabi Haifa (live on Canale Tre Toscana, channels 12 and 95 land digital). The team will hold a final practice this evening.
This match eve, Coach Crespi shares his thoughts with us about the challenge: “We’re heading back on court after an ugly loss in Cremona; a change to play with the energy that marked most of our games and that’s the necessary basis of our game quality. Haifa is fresh off a meaningful win Sunday at Eilat. They play aggressive basketball in transition, having good half court execution with Donta Smith and his frontal isolation, and he’s a main point of reference in low post. Roth, their brain, has perfectly recovered.”
