Our team won in the third straight exhibition game against Italian teams. It's time to play in two tournaments and go to America.

CSKA – Reggio Emilia: 64-52 (+12)

Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach:
We had another intense practice game and we had some ups and downs in it. The game was very useful for us because the opponents made our defense work hard though they did not shoot well from a three-point range. We also had a chance to try to play with two centers simultaneously when we put Sasha Kaun and Kyle Hines on the floor together. The negative thing in comparison to the previous game is that we had too many turnovers, and this is the aspect we should work on.
