The season started with three defeats, but with a 3-4 record the Italian team is back on track in the BKT EuroCup.
After seemingly sinking, Reyer is emerging again
Taking a look at the post-Montepaschi Siena years in the Italian basketball landscape, only EA7 Emporio Armani Milan has managed to win more domestic championships (4) than Umana Reyer Venice. After lifting the Italian League title in both the 2016-17 and 2018-19 seasons, the team from La Serenissima also brought home the 2019-2020 Italian Cup right before the COVID-19 pandemic.
Under the wise and meticulous leadership of Walter De Raffaele, the gold-and-garnet side entered the national history books but never overcame the eighthfinals obstacle in the BKT EuroCup. In particular, the team failed to make the most of its passionate support at Palasport Taliercio – Reyer’s small, crowded arena – when things mattered most.
