CITTÀ DI ROMA TOURNAMENT
Città di Roma Tournament is back!
The Torneo Citta di Roma once again has a new champion and it is Cajasol Seville. In the final game at Arena Altero Felici in the Italian capital on Sunday, Cajasol defeated the hosting team Stellazzurra Basketball Academy Rome 53-67, becoming the first team to earn a ticket to the final round of the Nike International Junior Tournament, which will be played in Milan from May 15 to 18, 2014, coinciding with the 2014 Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four. The hosts led by double-digits in the second quarter, but Cajasol rallied by halftime, before pulling away to a big lead in the third quarter to finish the 12th edition of the tournament with 3-1 record. Center Maxim Salash led in victory with 20 points plus 10 rebounds, earning the tournament MVP honors in the process (Video Interview). Joining him on the All Tournament team are Stellazzurra’s point guard Federico Mussini and power forward Andrea La Torre, along with guard Alberto Cacace of Armani Junior Milano and forward Richard Freudenberg of FC Bayern Munich. Earlier on Day 3, Armani Junior Milan led from start to finish, comfortably topping FC Bayern Munich 42-66 and winning the bronze medal. Cibona Zagreb finished the Torneo Citta di Roma in the fifth place after beating Spars Sarajevo 50-70, while in the game for the seventh place, Virtus Siena defeated Virtus Roma 67-47.
