Italy: Piacenza welcomes Grozer again and wins against Vibo Valentia in advance of Round 7
Grozer is back, and Hierrezuelo is back too, with Baranowicz on the sidelines to savor his imminent return on the court. Piacenza claims the third victory of the season thanks to a good team performance, but above all thanks to Grozer’s 30 points (and Russell’s 20). Vibo Valentia, on the other hand, stops and, after 4 consecutive victories that have projected it to the top of the standings, the third knockout arrives against Piacenza, one of the (expected) big teams of the 2020/21 SuperLega. Rossard was the top scorer of the Calabrians with 20 points, but it was not enough for coach Baldovin, because Vibo Valentia appeared unloaded especially in defense and service (15 final errors), re-emerging only in the third set when fans could admired the team of previous successes.
