ANDhe Casademont Zaragoza achieved a key victory this Sunday against the bottom of the Endesa League, Coosur Betis, by 82-72, which allows them to take a breath in the classification and have two wins away over the relegation zone.

In a meeting between two direct rivals to leave the lower zone that was marked by the irregularity of both and a marker that went jerkily, especially after the break, Casademont Zaragoza knew how to react to all the attempts of its rival to approach. to finish relatively comfortably.

With a choral game, with five men with ten or more points scored and four exceeding ten valuation credits, the handy team improved previous performances, especially in the hitting of triples and the rebound against an opponent who, although bottom, had surpassed one of the teams with the most potential in the Spanish League, Valencia.

Unlike what is being usual this season, the Aragonese team started the game higher on the scoreboard and that seemed to give him confidence with a game with a high scoring percentage and with a very successful Stan Okoye in the first set and whose performance began to mark the first differences, until finishing with the maximum at the end of the first ten minutes (24-17).

This allowed the locals to play looser and less strained than on other occasions in attack, while their defense worked and put Joan Plaza in trouble.

The robberies in defense of the rojillos, product of the good defense and the success after offensive rebound, began to make the difference gradually grow to a maximum of thirteen (40-27) in the 17th minute thanks to Kenan Sipahi, who scored 9 points in just over five minutes, although the Andalusians, thanks to Vitto Brown, the best of the game at halftime with 15 points and a PIR of 23, prevented the game from breaking for good and came to rest alive.

And so alive. After the refreshment time, the Verdiblanco team pressed in defense and Casademont Zaragoza became dark. The visitors moved within four points (53-49) in the 26th minute and the situation seemed favorable for Coosur Betis.

However, the game script took another turn because Jaume Ponsarnau’s team knew how to react and avoid what seemed to be looming, the visitor’s comeback, with a 13-3 run to put the maximum advantage of the game (+17 ) at the end of the third set (66-49).

Although the marker returned to make the rubber midway through the last quarter and the Sevillians were placed within eight points, once again the red team had the ability to react to stretch their possessions, remain calm and add a relatively comfortable victory.
