Brandon TricheBrandon Triche (193 cm, Syracuse’13) filed a claim against former team, Acea Virtus Roma (Italy-Serie A) at the Basketball Arbitral Tribunal (BAT). The 26-year-old Triche submitted that the Italian team did not make payments and unlawfully terminated his contract.

1. Pallacanestro Virtus Ssrl Unipersonale Roma is ordered to pay Mr. Brandon Triche USD 68,788.00 net as salary compensation.
