Day 1
Good debut for the Stellazzurra Academy at the U16 International Tournament EA7 at Santa Margherita Ligure with the academy  imposing itself on Armani Junior Milano with a 71-46 . The boys of Coach D'Arcangeli have played a good game for all the 40 minutes, and tomorrow will be committed against the Spanish Real Madrid

Day 2
The second day of the EA7 tournament in Santa Margherita Ligure opens with the big match between Real Madrid and Stellazzurra . Giving away a spot  to the final ( unless the Armani Junior wins in the afternoon against the "blancos"). After a handicap start (9-0 Real)the academy takes over thanks to Sikiras and David Moretti closing the first quarter with a a marginal lead ( 19-20). Despite a Doncic accurate with his free throws , but inaccurate from the field , the Real can not stop the wave started by Trapani and Moretti ( 41-48 at 20" ) . In the second half the music does not change , and despite Madrid's high centers ( 212cm by the Brazilian Dos Antos and 207 for Thiago Ndiaye of Senegal ) the Stellazzurra fly up to +12 at 33" , when Proleta and Fons Llinas save the Spanish champions from defeat  . the game ends 75-70 . In the afternoon our boys imposed themselves  97-57 on the hosts, Tigullio Basketball, and tomorrow will play the final for the third and fourth place against the Partizan.

Day 3
The Stellazzurra Basketball Academy closes with a nice third place trophy at the EA7 Under 16 in Santa Margherita Ligure. The boys coached by head coach Alexander Nocera have beaten Partizan Belgrade 92-66 thanks to a convincing first quarter (+5 at 20 ' ) and an overflowing third quarter that led to the academy on a 48-70 at 30 ' .
Highly decisive was the defensive performance on Dukic and the 205cm Gacic of two immense Ulaneo and Valentini, who also gather together over twenty rebounds.
on the offensive side instead Trapani and Moretti did very well , as well as interesting glimpses from Vitale and Nikolic .
So it ends with a third place and only one defeat (a very well fought one against Real Madrid ), the first venture of the Academy in this prestigious international tournament.
