The Italian Basketball Federation decided on penalizing Martos Napoli and Cimberio Varese, currently of the serie A, for delayed payments of taxes.
Napoli will be deducted another 6(!) points from their current record (Napoli stands winless at the bottom of the league with 2 points already deducted). Relegation of course is now close to certain for the Italian club.
Varese was at 10th position with a 5-5 record, but will have to suffer a 2-point deduction and stands now 12th with 8 points, still clear of the relegation places.
