The outside line of the Círculo Gijón Baloncesto is in great shape. If last week the MVP went to Unai Mendicote, this time the title will end up in the hands of a classic of the competition such as the American point guard Anthony Libroia. After shining in Salamanca and for four seasons in Zamora, he has crossed the Cantabrian mountain range to put his talent at the service of the Asturian team.

And on Saturday he signed one of his best games of the season. He scored 21 points, although he did it with some good shooting percentages. He captured 6 rebounds, dished out 6 assists and recovered two balls, in addition to receiving 9 personal fouls. That took him to the free throw line up to 14 times, scoring 12. All for a total of 36 PIR points.

Libroia’s performance (in addition to Unai Mendicote’s 24 points) served to beat CB Morón in a very even game, and get the ninth victory of the season, which moves them away from dangerous positions.
