The point guard was on the court an average of more than 17 minutes per crash and averaged 3.5 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists. The Granada-born player responded to the trust placed in him by Pablo Pin and was on the court at decisive moments of the season thanks to his dedication in defense and the direction of the game he exercised.
