After losing at home to Movistar Estudiantes, UEMC Real Valladolid were two games out of relegation, looking towards the bottom of the table. After three consecutive victories, Paco García’s men are virtually saved and with the possibility of entering the playoffs. Much of the blame lies with the good playing time of Alec Wintering, the MVP of matchday 30.

The UEMC Real Valladolid shooting guard left this Saturday with 24 points, with a series of 9 of 13 in shots of two and 6 of 8 in free throws. To this he added 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 6 recoveries, for a total of 31 PIR points.

Anecdotal section:

Alec Wintering’s second MVP this season (matchdays 21 and 30) and sixth of his career in Spain. His first three were achieved in his debut year with Sáenz Horeca Araberri, an extraordinary impact on the competition. The next one was obtained last season with Melilla Sport Capital.

It is also the third award for UEMC Real Valladolid this season, after Wintering himself and Sergio de la Fuente on matchday 7.

The ideal quintet of the day:

The quintet for this matchday 30 is made up of the MVP Alec Wintering, who forms the outside line with two sluggers in a state of grace who faced each other in the most spectacular match of the day. Between Devin Schmidt (Cáceres World Heritage Site) and Calvin Hermanson (Tau Castelló) they scored 11 triples in a shooting recital.

And inside, the duo formed by Michael Carrera and Jorge Bilbao enters the ideal quintet of the day. The versatile power forward from ICG Força Lleida continues to be the great sensation of the competition, while the center from Tau Castelló is one of the most outstanding names of the season.
