Albert-Schweitzer-Turnier 2006

Italy

At the AST 2006 Italy made the 6th place after losing the final match vs. Lithuania after overtime 77:79. 2004 they just came in in 11th place, 2008 in 12th.. Not much for the Italians being used to be blessed with success. It’s already the twentieth time that Italy is going to participate in the AST and therefore is one of the most frequent participants. They left as a winner the traditional contest in Mannheim three times: in 1965, in 1969, and in 1983. Besides this they were placed several times in the top positions (2nd in 1979, 3rd in 1993, and 4th in 1973).

This year the Italians are going to participate as 7th of EC 2007. At EC 2005 the Italian U18 won the bronze medal, the last big success after having gone through a longer lean time in this age group. In former years the team was counted from the junior teams on to one of the most dominant European forces (2nd place in a European Championship in 1992, 1984, and in 1972; 3rd place in 1986, 1974, 1970, 1968, 1966, and in 1964). Even in World Championships the U18 national team could credit themselves with tremendous results (2nd place in 1991; 3rd in 1987; 6th in 1983, and in 1979). Back on top there’s a lot to expect from Italy at the AST 2010.
