In the opening match of Matchday 20, EasyCharger Palencia won in front of their fans to break their losing streak. A duel in which CB Almansa with Afanion could not recover the existing differences in a second quarter of clear local dominance. Already on Sunday, Covirán Granada was able to stay at the top of the table after a duel of moral value for what it means for the Andalusian team to have been able to prevail over a Leyma Coruña. Although the most valuable victories of the weekend were those achieved by a Cáceres P. Humanity that took the almost definitive step towards permanence by winning Huesca or by an HLA Alicante that showed signs of growth after defeating Melilla Sport Capital in their fief .


The EasyCharger Palencia needed a victory with which to gain confidence and this has arrived on Saturday afternoon-night. A hard-fought victory against CB Almansa with Afanion that has allowed Pedro Rivero’s men to recover feelings for the final stretch of the season. A satisfactory day for the people of Palencia, for the leader Covirán Granada, for HLA Alicante, for Cáceres P. Humanity…

They had to work hard and they had to do it throughout the 40 minutes of the game because CB Almansa played against a rocky rival of those who never give up the game for lost. And that Rubén Perelló’s men came to see themselves with a wide disadvantage against them throughout the third quarter after EasyCharger Palencia’s good start to the game. A team that took to the court ready to show their best intentions and was able to impose their pace of play in order to lead the match with some comfort. The duo formed by Allen and Barro took care of this, doing a lot of damage in attack to a team from La Mancha that, despite their final comeback attempts, did not arrive in time to reverse their luck (68-57).

Already on Sunday, one of the most anticipated duels arrived with the arrival of Covirán Granada at Riazor to face a demanding duel. A match that ended with victory for Pablo Pin’s men and that allows the Nasrid team not only to reinforce their leadership but also to acquire an important morale boost for the final stretch of the season. Because, with the Movistar Estudiantes duel postponed, the Andalusian team took the opportunity to continue opening a gap on second place.

Although, as had happened on the weekdays, this Sunday was a propitious date for steps forward. And if not, tell it to an HLA Alicante that continues to gain momentum after taking a valuable win against Melilla Sport Capital in the return of Gonzalo García de Vitoria to the city or a Juaristi ISB that transferred its confidence as a local to the Barris Nord of Lleida where the set of Gerard Finds could not prolong their good moment of form. More luck ran in Fontajau a Bàsquet Girona that continues to grow despite the absence of Marc Gasol in his game and that, on this occasion, a TAU Castelló obtained his doctorate.

And all this without forgetting the relief that their victory in Illumbe against UEMC Real Valladolid has meant for Acunsa Gipuzkoa or the almost definitive step towards permanence of a Cáceres P. Humanity who worked hard to come back in Huesca from a match that had not started quite good for your interests.
