i am gonna be studying abroad in Italy for 3 months next fall, from September 5 to December 9th and I was curious if any of you knew of any leagues or particular cities i should hit up for some basketball action....i know i am gonna get very deprived of bball so i was hoping this would be a great opportunity to check out a euro/italian league play

i am gonna be staying in Paderno Del Grappa in the Venneto region, i am about 40 miles north of Venice....one town that i thought i recognized in terms of possibly having a bball team was near by city called Treviso, am i correct???

anyways, any thoughts or suggestions will help, thanks

Treviso is the nearest town with a decent team as you found out so you'll have the chance to watch euroleague as well as Italian league games of Benneton Treviso
Italian league starts somewhere in the middle of October I think, while euroleague starts in the begining of november...

Send a PM to Community Moderator BizzyRipsta. She just got back from a semester in Italy, and can probably give you pointers on all sorts of stuff.

I don't recall her mentioning anything about Euro hoops specifically, but I'm sure there's plenty of info in general she can share.

About the topic: in Italy there is the 2nd best basketball league of Europe few after Spain's ACB, and in Treviso (located 2 steps from Paderno) you can see Benetton Treviso, one of the best italian and european teams.

And, of course, in Treviso you can see the other big italian teams play vs. Benetton.

Anyway you will be not far from other "basketball-cities" like Bologna, Udine, Pesaro or Milan (all 2-4 driving hours).

Speaking of NBA prospects, for Treviso plays the PF Andrea Bargnani, one of our best youngs.

Ciao

The italian A1 league starts usually in the last week of september or the first of october (schedule appears in august)

Euroleague starts in the first week of november.
