PABLO ROMERO / COMMUNICATION AREA FEB
He arrived at the Madrid team just a few weeks ago to reinforce his outside game and who was going to tell Álex Urtasun (Movistar Students) who was going to end up becoming the hero who gave the team its first title in the LEB Gold League.
A player with plenty of experience and whose quality is beyond doubt, as could be seen in the most important stretch of the game, a second half in which he assumed offensive responsibility to score important baskets at those times when his team was having the worst time. equipment.
Total, 21 PIR goals that were more decisive for the quality than for the quantity since they arrived at the decisive moments with a total of 14 points, 3 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 fouls received. Without a doubt, the best boost for a club that reconciled itself with basketball at the hands of a player who did the same with the MVP.
There have been many occasions in which the surname Urtasun has sounded strong at the head of a ranking in the FEB Competitions. Both in the EBA League with Pope Urtasun, and in the LEB Oro itself through the different stages of Txemi Urtasun. But we would have to go back a total of 13 seasons to find the last precedent by Álex Urtasun. Specifically, until the fourth matchday of the 2009/10 season in which the outsider from Pamplona wore the Baloncesto León shirt. A streak caused by almost a decade of absence from the League during his time in the Endesa League and which has been broken with a Princess Cup Final in which Álex returned the prominence to the national players four years after the last native MVP, the of Guille Rubio in the Breogán River.
The ideal quintet of the day:
Fully national quintet resulting from the Final of the 2022 Princess of Asturias Cup. Five players who pulled the wagon in their respective teams to be eligible for the conquest of a title that ended up staying at home. All this despite attempts from the leadership of a Lluis Costa (Coviran Granada) who again masterfully carried the reins of the Nasrid team, well supported under the hoops by a Edu Gatell (Coviran Granada) who put defensive intimidation and offensive generosity on the court during the minutes he was on court.
But on this occasion, the game of the Andalusian nationals could not prevail over that of the local team since Jota Cuspinera’s men were able to impose themselves on the scoreboard through the talent of the escort Álex Urtasun (Movistar Students)of the forward leadership Javier Beiran (Movitar Students) and the inner solidity of a Nacho Martin (Movistar Students) who completed the outer work. Everything to be able to win an award with great meaning for the team.
