I needed the UEMC Real Valladolid a good game on his fiefdom with which to finish connecting the new squad with his fans and this came on Wednesday night. An objective that the Valladolid people had pursued during the first weeks of competition and that could not be achieved in any other way than through the leadership of a whole man in the house.

Because Sergio de la Fuente He assumed command of the team on the floor to put all his talent at the service of the team. Thus, the inner player signed 40 valuation points that were decisive at the time of imposing the Unicaja Oviedo (81-73) and, what is more important, keys when it comes to being able to awaken the best feelings among its fans.

All this thanks to 29 points (3/3 TL and 11/15 TC), 10 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 recoveries and 3 received fouls with which he raised the public again and again from their seats to be able to show that Pisuerga’s heart will beat again this season.

Anecdotal section:

He has accumulated dozens of MVPs throughout his career, in the EBA League, in the LEB Silver League, in the LEB Gold League and even in the now famous 3×3 modality, but over the last few months, the individual grand prize Sergio de la Fuente had resisted. Specifically, since January 6, 2020 when he gave his team the best gift of kings with an award based on 31 valuation points and that served to certify the team’s classification for the final of the Princess of Asturias Cup (read report). Now, the inner player recovers the great scepter to sign the best valuation of his career in the LEB Gold League (+40), but not the best of his career since, in his service record, the +47 signed in the LEB Silver League in the 2014/15 season (read report) and the +52 achieved in the EBA League with the University of Valladolid in 2013/14 (read report).

The ideal quintet of the day:

The one of Sergio de la Fuente (UEMC Real Valladolid) was, without a doubt, the great name of a day in which it seemed impossible that no one could overshadow the great reference of recent weeks, a Nick Ward (Leyma Coruña) that he had once again opted for the great award and that, on this occasion, he will form an inner couple with the player from the Valladolid team.

A Ward that was not alone in the fight for victory where he was accompanied by a Álex Hernández (Leyma Coruña) stellar in the direction to head a perimeter to which the escort appears to have subscribed Eddy Polanco (CB Almansa Afanion) and to which a Konstantin Kostadinov (Palmer AM Palma) key in the first Balearic victory of the course.
