Covirán Granada is from tonight one step closer to the final of the Copa Princesa after the victory achieved by Pablo Pin’s men in a demanding duel against TAU ??Castelló. A game in which the Nasrid team knew how to impose their style of play after the first few bars in which it was the people from Castellón who seemed to have the singing voice. But the always impeccable leadership of the Costa-Díaz couple, together with Bropleh’s exterior success and the interior solidity of the Nasrid pivots began to tip the balance midway through the second quarter. Thus, the Andalusian team raised the public from their seats to create a perfect partnership that ended up wearing down a rival who noticed the lack of filming as the minutes progressed. In this way, the victory stayed at home and Covirán Granada approached the Cup (86-66).
In this way, Covirán Granada managed to maintain their differences at the top of the table over a Movistar Estudiantes who knew how to play their cards against one of those especially dangerous rivals. Because Levitec Huesca had arrived at the WiZink Center ready to surprise a team that knew how to exploit its defensive balance better than ever to thus neutralize each of the Huesca attempts to take the initiative. Thus, the course of the meeting was exalting a Nacho Martín who came up from 6.75 to, with five triples, to be able to put land in between towards the final victory (70-59).
And after Andalusians and Madrilenians, who did not fail either was a Unicaja Oviedo for whom the day ended in the best possible way, with a victory at home against a Palmer Alma Mediterránea who tried in every possible way and could not break despite to this his negative streak (68-53). Although two of the most outstanding wins of the night came from the lower-middle zone, one of them from Pisuerda where CB Prat signed a solid victory away from home thanks to a stellar Arnau Parrado (71-95) and, the other, from La Mancha where CB Almansa with Afanion beat the rival and the doubts of a month without playing to add a valuable victory against Cáceres P. humanity (93-69).
The “day” of postponed duels was completed on Thursday night with a full Catalan derby in which ICG Força Lleida won against Bàsquet Girona. A duel in which Gerard Finds surprised his rival from the start with an effective and very physical game and which became complicated for the visitors when Marc Gasol had to retire due to injury in the third minute without being able to return to the track. In this scenario, the people from Lleida were able to impose their game against a team that found internal rhythm thanks to Jawara or Sorolla, but that could not resist the high pace of play of the people from Lleida. Especially in a last quarter in which the home team definitively broke the match to leave the victory in their locker (86-65).
