Gianni was deeply marked in the history of Aquila Basket: at that time the club played in different categories, but the seriousness, respect for the rules and the people inside the club did not differ. Some coaches and managers have not met with Brusinelli for “personal” reasons, but we try to carry on the tremendous values ​​he conveyed to us day in and day out. This is a tournament that belongs to us, it is part of our DNA and the whole club.”

We must be ready later. The opponents in these two days? Let’s start with Naples, which in the meantime brings Jakouri Williams back to Trento as a competitor.” “He’s a player he is fond of, whom Juventus fans appreciate, albeit at a distance because of Covid, in his season in our shirt because of him.
