The San Marino Titano Centenary Cup starts with a victory. Bartoli Meccanica MBA knocked out in the sprint
Pink is the color with which the Titans begin to formalize the 2021-2022 season. The pink of the report, that of the victory in the Cup in Fossombrone. A narrow +1 (66-67), but with a substantial performance and from an authoritative team. Always ahead of our boys, with a final thrill on the shot of local despair on the gong but also with great merit. On the shields Gamberini, who writes 23, and Altavilla, who reaches 16.
Pallacanestro Titano always ahead, with the first quarter scored by Raschi’s triples (11-19 at 10 ‘) and with the second who instead sees Gamberini unstoppable near the basket. At 3’57 ”from the interval Dini’s counterattack signs the +11 (18-29), with Fossombrone who, however, comes back under and gnaws something before the long break (24-31 at 20 ‘).
Back from the locker rooms a couple of very good plays by Santi reach Bartoli Mechanics to immediately return to a distance possession, while on the blue-white front it is above all Altavilla’s plays that widen the gap. In any case, we remain on the two / three possessions away, with Santi’s triple table signing -4 and Raschi’s free throws to seal the 45-50 of the 30 ‘.
The Titans seem to have more and point to +9 7 ‘from the siren, but at that Alessandroni starts firing triple from every position. Captain Macina and his companions play with tenacity and always remain ahead. The scoreboard in Fossombrone says 59-65 with 1’25 ”from the end (two free from Altavilla), but in the last minute everything happens. Pagliaro scores 61-65 at -30 “, Macina makes 1/2 from the line immediately after and Santi enters for -3 at -19”. Still 1/2 of the captain to the free (63-67) and, 5 ”from the end, sixth triple of the evening by Alessandroni (66-67). Obviously the systematic foul from the Marches, but from the line the Titans miss two with Raschi and there is room for a shot of desperation, which however does not enter.
