  0 Carly DeMarque | January 01st, 2018 | Italian League, News, Pro Indoor

Cucine Lube Civitanova was the only team to win at home to open up the second half of the Italian Men’s League, while all other matches resulted in the visiting team taking the win.

One of those home wins was Azimut Modena who is coming off a loss to Kioene Padova without their star player Earvin Ngapeth due to a feud with the team’s head coach. Ngapeth returned to the team’s lineup for their match against BCC Castellana Grotte where he was named the MVP with 14 points in the match.

Calzedonia Verona and Top Volley Latina’s match has been scheduled for January 25, 2018.
