PABLO ROMERO / COMMUNICATION AREA FEB
Add and follow Melilla Sport Capital in search of the main objective of the season, a fight for permanence that has become the only possible wish for a team that, today, is a little closer to its objective.
This is guaranteed by the last triumph harvested by the entity before the ZTE Real Canoe in a weekend in which the team equaled its best all-time score in the competition (113p) to sign one of those victories that could end up being worth its weight in gold.
This was done by one of the most valuable men in the competition, an Alec Wintering who put his most personal stamp on 30 points (9/9 TL and 10/16 TC), 4 rebounds, 8 assists and 5 fouls received to whom little could be done by a Madrid team that ended up yielding only in overtime ().
All this through 38 valuation points with which to try to close the challenge as soon as possible to try to qualify for the best possible classification.
He suffered a serious knee injury in his transition between college and professional basketball that did not prevent him from performing at a high level in his early years in Europe and fractured his fibula two years ago without affecting his performance. Because Alec Wintering is one of those bases made of another paste and for which there is no problem when it comes to assuming responsibility. This has been demonstrated throughout three seasons in the LEB Oro League where he was able to show his business card with the conquest of his first three awards in his debut with Sáenz-Horeca Araberri ().

Humanidad) confirmed his great moment of form with a valuable triumph, as well as in El Plantío where Mus Barro (Tizona Univ. Burgos) He repeated the role to reinforce the morale of the Burgos team.
