Ghanaian-Italian International Small Forward and Shooting Guard Awudu Abass has described the upcoming Italian Serie A Basketball League season as “complicated” since his team goes into the competition as defending champions.
Abass helped Virtus Bologna win the 2020-2021 league title to clinch his second league title since turning professional. Bologna beat Olimpia Milano in the finals series.
Bologna plays Trento at 18:45 GMT tonight in its opening game of the 2021-2022 season and according to Abass via Pianeta Basket, it is going to be a tricky tie just as the season would be.
“We have a tough game ahead of us. We know Trento and…it will not be an easy match. This year will even be more difficult than last season; the most complicated thing is to repeat and win again” he said.
Bologna heads to the game off a win over Milano in the Italian Super Cup with Abass registering six points, a rebound, an assist and a steal in 16 minutes off the bench. (Click highlighted text to watch highlights)
