But in the second half, Trieste’s ascent began, led by Bartley and Jens.

Fifth pre-season friendly game of the season from Nutribullet Treviso Basket facing Caorle, Allianz Trieste. Some exes, Banks and Cooke for TVB, Vildera for Giuliani, to launch a Serie A approaching stage that will see the right start in two weeks. Coach Marcelo Nicola, waiting to welcome the absentee (Sokolovsky, Jantunen and Gorkatama) to the start of the tournament, makes the fifth start of PalaMare Iroegbu with Banks and Sarto outside, with Sorokas and Cook under the basket.

The first quarter starts with Trieste trying to start strong, with Vildera very active in attack: 0-4 after the first two minutes, but Sorokas basket and a lightning attack with recovery and stopping the ball by Iroegbu is sufficient and quickly leveled. Sorocas, already in championship form, still allows the Treviso players to stretch, while Cook stands out in the rebound. In the central phase of the first quarter, TVB appears to be able to take over operations (10-8 with Iroegbu submerged), but Allianz responds with a blow. In the final with fresh energy off the bench, there’s a basket and foul for young Fajian, then Zanelli and Simeone shell out from three and Nutribullet goes to his first little break at 18-16.

A great start in the second quarter for Nicolas’ team, who found Cook an excellent defensive fortress giving the team the opportunity to play quickly in attack. The blue and white arrows take advantage of this, well inspired by the wise direction of Adrian Banks at the disposal of his teammates. The highly effective Sorokas (9 points in the 20th minute) and “electric” Irogbo continue to score, then Derek Cook after much dirty work finds two dunked for +10 (31-21) in the 16th minute. TVB does not stop, Sorokas stops and then scores from Three for maximum advantage (34-21), but Vildera (10 points in the first half) keeps Trieste alive. We go to 20′ with TVB steadily advancing 37-29.

The third quarter opens with a Bartley treble that brings Allianz closer to -5, but Sorokas and then Irogbo are too hot with three trebles bringing a double-digit advantage for TVB (43-32). Trieste, however, does not give up, alternating between defense and man, hitting from afar with Bartley and Marcius and approaching -3, 46-43 at 26′. But playing Nigerian-American playmaker Ike Iroegbu pushed opponents back, as Simioni put in his second hat-trick, Nicola’s side hit 11-2 in Trieste with a counter-break that puts him back on track. Sarto also hits and Nutribullet maintains a good margin: 53-45 at 28 minutes while rotations continue from the bench with space also for young players for coach Nicolas. Just when TVB has the “baby” on the field, Trieste picks up speed and finds quick conclusions, even from three with Bartley unleashed with good help from Gaines, who fixes a rip, 53-50 and Treviso timeout. An excellent exit for the Biancazura team with a hat-trick from Alvez Sarto, who closes with an escalation. We go to the 30′ siren with the Nutribullet in front of the 56-50.

The last period starts with TVB protecting his fortress well thanks to Cooke and Sorokas blocks, then Zanelli steals the ball and scores 58-50. Despite having to give a lot of minutes for “under”, Nutribullet continues at a good pace and Vittori Bomb (61-53) fends off Trieste’s rise by half a quarter. Zanelli and his teammates continue to defend aggressively, and do well on the defensive rebound, but Trieste responds and finds two supports from Vildera and another invention by Bartley that reopens the game entirely: 61-59 in the 36th minute. Cooke extends a nice pass from Banks to +4 , but it commits immediately after a 4* error. The last two minutes are a real fight, TVB at +4 struggling to convert two favorable occasions, regretting that Gaines fired two consecutive goals into Treviso’s defenders and 1’18” from the end after an all-to-match advanced. Nutribullet under 65-67. Timeout The last convulsive in which Irogbo and his teammates with the active opponent’s pressure erred their conclusions in attack, while Trieste is more solid and ends up winning 65-71.
