  • Description

    An Italian basketball team probably surprised themselves - and certainly surprised the Russians - when they met a team from the USSR at the Palazzo dello Sport Gymnasium in Milan. The USSR are considered to be almost unbeatable in the basketball field of sport, yet the Italians held them to 28-28 in the first half and after being ahead several times in the second went down only by 59 to 64 at the end. The match was refereed by M. Blanchard of France and Mr. Skylojannis of Greece.
