H Armani Milan got her first pink card this year Euroleagueafter defeating him at home Olympic with a score of 65-53.
This match had… historical significance for the coach of the Italians, Ettore Messinawho with this victory reached his 300th career match Euroleaguecounting from the “birth” of the organization, in October 2000.
In fact, the Italian coach is only the second to reach this number. The first was, who else, the Zeljko Obradovicwhich now counts 336 victories in the top European competition.
As for the rest of the list, closest of all is Xavi Pascual with 241 wins, but is currently not on a EuroLeague team to… climb. He has 238 wins Pablo Lasso of Bayern, and 212 o Dimitris Itoudis of Fener. The only other person with over 200 wins is Dusko Ivanovic with 202, while nearby is the Ergin Ataman with 196.

He has won four Euroleagues, with Virtues (1998, 2001) and CSKA (2006, 2008).
