National team competitions
Laura Macchi is hoping that Beretta Famila's EuroCup Women triumph over BC Moscow signals the dawn of a new era at the club.
The title win earlier this month was the first of her career.
Beretta-Famila captured the third European trophy in their history on Thursday by prevailing 78-69 at BC Moscow to lift the EuroCup Women.
The result gave the Italian outfit a 29-point win on aggregate after their 87-67 win in the first leg in Schio.
Only one thing will allow Beretta-Famila to take advantage of their 20-point lead in the second leg of the final of the EuroCup Women at BC Moscow.
And that is, the Schio club's Bethany Donaphin warns, to forget it even exists.
Beretta Famila hold what appears to be a commanding 20-point advantage heading into the second leg of their EuroCup Women final at BC Moscow on Thursday.
But the coach of the Schio team, Sandro Orlando, and leading Italian star Laura Macchi, are full of anxiety heading into the contest.
