There are so many great coaches who are celebrated in every corner of the world. There is a coach who only knows how to win, who has been doing it for over thirty years and has been doing it everywhere, but there is only one who in a few days has celebrated two totally different titles and that is the European Championship with Spain. and the Italian Supercup for Basketball: its name is Sérgio Scariolowhich expanded its showcase.

Scariolo’s career is really top notch. The Brescia coach won his first trophy in 1989-1990 season when he won the Italian championship with Pesaro, he was 29 years old and on his first experience. Incredible. So he won trophies really all over the place, and the last one he won with the Spanish national team in September – he won the European Championship for the fourth time.

In this incredible September, the coach also led his club’s team to success: Virtus Bologna, who after defeating Olimpia Milano in the semifinals after overtime he also defeated Dinamo Sassari, who at one point seemed to almost have the game in their hands.

The final was very good and pitted two high-level teams against each other. Sassari, winner of a point over Derthona, breaks in the second half and advances, but cannot escape. Bologna is always there, behind it, it runs the risk of being overwhelmed, but in the end it changes gears, thanks also to Belinelli that in the last quarter the hero puts one triple after another. He is not the best on the field, as the MVP of the final is American Mickey.

After the overtake, Bologna maintain a small advantage over Sassari by coach Bucchi, who must surrender after a splendid finale. In Brescia, Scariolo’s birthplace, the coach wins again. For Bologna it is the third success in the Italian Supercup in its history – curiously Virtus won the first and the last two editions, in the middle they lost eleven finals.
