In 2022, being part of the U18 national coaching staff, I worked with Luca Vildoza.
“We worked on situations that covered 70% of the field to work on physical conditioning and, at the same time, real game situations. Thinking that surely in the future he would have to face more athletic and bigger players, we did a rhythmic job looking for an improvement in reading which paths to the hoop to take and how to attack them”.
“Luca is a fast elastic player, with a lot of change of pace, who goes well up front, but we seek to enhance another resource, that of feints and breaks on the floor to be able to find more finishing opportunities when attacking bigger players on his way to the basket. We simulated different game actions, emphasizing body language on the ground, looking for more springiness to the wings, deeper breaks, and more footwork to create better paths to the rim.”
