Laura Macchi-Italy and Beretta Famila

Two years after playing host to EuroBasket Women Italy traveled to Latvia with very few expectations. The lack of pressure paid off in a spot in the Quarter-Finals thanks in large part to the play of Laura Macchi. The 1.88m power forward led her team in points (16.0) and rebounds (5.6), as they fell just one win short of a spot at the 2010 World Championships in the Czech Republic. For club side Beretta Famila Macchi averaged 11.1 points and 3.3 rebounds per game in the EuroLeague Women.
