signed for him Levitec Huesca after a few months of hiatus in his career and he did it with the desire to be able to feel important on the tracks again. Quite a challenge met over the last few weeks by a Xavi King that seems to have brought freshness to the painting of a needy group from Huesca.

Because, since his arrival, the Catalan player has been able to take on the weight of the team’s offensive play with games like the one played this weekend against TAU Castello. A crash in which he reached the 34 PIR goals through a solid game on both sides of the court with which he contributed to his team a total of 17 points (5/8 FT and 6/8 TC), 12 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 blocks and 7 fouls received. Although, on this occasion, his presence under the hoops was not quite enough when it came to being able to finish off a match that went into extra time and in which his team came to have a triple winner that did not find its way desired (93-94).

A duel in which, results aside, the team from Alto Aragón obtained the best sensations from him so that, once the age of majority for the season has been reached, the expected turning point can arrive in the face of a second round of increase.

Anecdotal section:

Hardened in a thousand battles both nationally and internationally, the center Xavi Rey (Levitec Huesca) He has harvested during the last weekend what will be remembered as the first MVP of his career in the LEB Gold League. Of course, as long as it is not prevented by the last pending duel of the day, the one in which a Marc Gasol (Basketball Girona) of the one who was a teammate in the Spanish National Team. In this way, Rey could become the new National MVP joining names like Marc Gasol (two), Lluís Costa, Pedro Llompart or Serge of the Source.

The ideal quintet of the day:

It was not the dream day for the members of the ideal quintet of the day who, for the most part, could not accompany their superb performances with what would have been the victory desired by their team. Because, on this occasion, fortune only accompanied the point guard Thomas Schreiner (ICG Força Lleida) on the pitch of Barris Nord and the escort Gerel Simmons (HLA Alicante)fundamental in his team’s visit to Pumarín.

With the opposite side of the coin they encountered during their visit to San Sebastian both the forward Jalen Nesbitt (CB Almansa with Afanion) as the power forward Kevin Bercy (CB Almansa with Afanion) who could do little despite their numbers to stop a stellar Acunsa Gipuzkoa in attack. A situation similar to that experienced by the MVP of the day, a Xavi Rey (Levitec Huesca) who gave it his all on the court and saw how victory slipped away in a last winning shot that didn’t quite find its way to the hoop.
