AX Armani Exchange Milan (11-0) logged their 11th consecutive win in Serie A, overcoming Germani Brescia (4-7) 76-62 (15-12, 17-20, 20-17, 24-13).

Giampaolo Ricci was the most valuable player for Ettore Messina's squad, producing 14 points (3/3 on two-pointers and 2/5 from behind the arc) plus 5 rebounds.

Ben Bentil added another happy note for the winners, as he seems to have meshed very well with the team in a short period of time. The Ghanaian big needed 17 minutes to score again in double digits (14 points).

Brescia paid for their extremely poor 3-point percentage (6/27) as only former Armani Milan guard Amedeo Della Valle managed to score with some consistency (17 points).

Bentil and Shields helped the hosts take a 25-16 lead, but Brescia responded with Della Valle and Mitrou-Long, tying at 32. In the third quarter, Moore completed a 2+1 effort (47-48) but Ricci and Datome put Milan back ahead 52-49.

From then on, everything became easier for the hosts as they secured victory relying on their suffocating defense. What's more, Nicolo Melli earned himself a new personal rebounding record.

Next Tuesday, the red and white will be back on the court of the Mediolanum Forum to face Panathinaikos for EuroLeague Round 15.
