There was little Melilla Sport Capital could do on the Espai Fruita Barris Nord pitch to stop an ICG Força Lleida team that few teams will be able to surprise on their track this year. A very solid team facing the hoop and that closed in a big way a first round to remember.

TRACING: Results – Calendar – Official website
Last match of the first round and another victory for an ICG Força Lleida team that has starred in half a dream season. Because Gerard Find’s team has not only left the permanence alive for sentencing but has even tied more than half a ticket to the Playoffs for promotion. All this after their last victory against a Melilla Sport Capital that arrived with important casualties as they could not count on their latest signings and that suffered from the beginning the competitive fury of the people from Lleida. Especially with the start of a second quarter that broke the game in favor of the home side after an even start. Because the offensive blackout of the Melillans triggered the options of a rival in which Michael Carrera began to feel comfortable. Arturo Álvarez’s team did not give up because of this, returning with renewed energy after the break, but neither Rakocevic’s points nor Barro’s rebounding ability were enough to annul a rival who thus certified a new victory (83-73 ).
