Basketball: EA7 Milan ends AS Monaco’s winning streak in a decisive victory

EA7 Emporio Armani Milan have brought AS Monaco’s impressive eight-game winning streak in the EuroLeague to a shuddering end by winning 80-98 in the Salle Gaston Médecin. 

After a defeat against Strasbourg in the Coupe de France semifinals, which puts AS Monaco out of the running, the Roca Team are feeling the sting again.

The team’s eight-game winning streak in the EuroLeague has ended in the wake of a loss against EA7 Emporio Armani Milan, who outplayed the Monaco team on their own court on 20th March to win 80-98.

“We fought but we had to do it from the beginning”

Alpha Diallo, who scored 17 points for the Roca Team during the game, emphasised the need for the team to bounce back in post-match comments.

“We need to regain our confidence,” said the 26-year-old American-Guinean player.

Jordan Loyd, who contributed 14 points, also reflected on the challenge of overcoming the team’s stalling momentum.

“When we’re down by a lot, it’s one thing to come back, but it’s another thing to make the effort to get ahead,” he remarked. “We fought but we had to do it from the beginning.”

The next game in the EuroLeague is another home fixture, this time against Spanish side Valencia on 22nd March.
