PABLO ROMERO / COMMUNICATION AREA FEB
That Lluis Costa It is one of the most decisive bases of the LEB Gold League throughout its history, it is a fact that no longer escapes the sight of anyone. And far from the sports management of a Covirán Granada that he bet big last summer to be able to keep him in the city.
A summer period in which succulent offers that Lluis rejected due to his high degree of commitment to the project did not stop reaching his phone. Because the final for promotion disputed last year left an important impact on the competitive desire of a player who dreams of being able to return to the elite with the Nasrid team.
And the best proof of this was the match played last Saturday where, after an overwhelming start to the match and a stellar first half, Costa ended the night with 35 points (6/7 TL and 12/19 TC), 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 recovery and 5 fouls received.
Numbers with which he endorsed the victory of his team at home through 39 valuation points which is the best hope for the future for a hobby devoted to the game of their starting point guard ().
If only ten days ago (J.7) it was Sergio de la Fuente (UEMC Real Valladolid) who managed to sign an utoritarian MVP, on this occasion (J.9) it was Lluis Costa (Covirán Granada) who was in charge of taking the baton from the court of the Palacio de los Deportes. A heritage conquered only with one point less of valuation (+39) and that is the third award for the Catalan base since he arrived at Covirán Granada. The previous two, in the final stretch of last year where he led his team to the final for promotion.
The ideal quintet of the day:
He was the great protagonist of the day on an individual level, but the role of Lluis Costa (Covirán Granada) It also had its collective award with a new triumph for the Nasrid group. A performance that led him to lead the day’s ideal quintet, where he was flanked in his outside game by two men whose quality was once again evident. On the one hand, a Noah Allen (EasyCharger) decisive in the victory of the Palencia team and, on the other, a Calvin Hermanson (TAU Castelló) intractable in the Castellón perimeter.
Less valuable on this occasion was the contribution to the four of a Gonçalo Delgado (Girona Basketball) that he could not lead his team to victory despite their great meeting in San Sebastián on a Sunday afternoon in which Arnau Parrado (CB Prat) marked the way forward for a new Potablava triumph.
