With the abrupt ending to last season, the Super Cup was expanded to eight teams this season. Two quarterfinals were played on Thursday, starting with Yvonne Anderson leading Venezia past Empoli 84-67 as Francesca Pan also returned to the club she played for before college. Schio has not assembled their full roster, but looked strong behind Sandrine Gruda in a 108-52 win over Vigarano, although Ja’Tavia Tapley did make her professional debut in the loss. The first game on Friday was quite exciting as a dramatic comeback attempt by San Martino di Lupari fell short against Lucca, which escaped 77-76. Ty Marshall led Ragusa in a 70-64 win over Bashaara Graves and Sesto San Giovanni as Mariella Santucci also made her professional debut in the victory. On Sunday, Venezia held the lead for most of the game on their way to a 73-64 win, but Schio will leave feeling like they still have a clear advantage once they can field their full roster.
Both semifinals were played on Saturday, starting with Venezia’s 88-51 win over Lucca. Schio then beat Ragusa 82-60 to set up the expected final on Sunday.
