It will not be a day as such, but this is how the 12 teams that will take to the field starting this Wednesday for the dispute of up to six postponed games will face it. And as usually happens every day, this one could not miss its corresponding great match, in this case, with the confrontation between the last two relegated teams from the Endesa League, Acunsa Gipuzkoa and Movistar Estudiantes. Two teams in opposing qualifying realities at the moment, but equally forced to win in the face of their respective objectives. In the case of the Basque team, having to win in order not to lose the playoff zone and, in the case of the people from Madrid, in search of a victory with which to try to regain leadership. And it is that the visiting victory would be an almost definitive step for Jota Cuspinera’s men in the face of the dispute of the Princess of Asturias Cup. A challenge that they will opt for without Edwin Jackson out due to injury, but with several former Gipuzkoans in their ranks: Nacho Martín, John Dee, Lucas Faggiano and Iñaki Martín.
An hour later, Pumarín will dress in his best clothes to host one of the most anticipated meetings. On their track, the Oviedo fans will receive -at the third attempt- a Bàsquet Girona team that will arrive led by their man of reference, a Marc Gasol who could reappear after his withdrawal due to injury. In this way, the center of Sant Boi could contribute to the conquest of a third consecutive victory that would bring the Girona team closer to Playoff positions as long as they manage to prevail over a Unicaja Oviedo that accumulates four consecutive defeats and that it will only be worth winning so as not to lose Cup options.
Starting at 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday, the focus of attention will be divided between what happens at the Pisuerga and what happens at the Ciutat because both UEMC Real Valladolid and TAU Castelló will need to win their respective fans first to regain ground lost last weekend. In the case of the team from Castellón receiving a Leyma Coruña team that has been solid away from home, but after losing to the leader and, in the case of the team from Valladolid against a CB Almansa with Afanion who has been one of the most fit teams in the recent weeks despite his defeat in Palencia.
Thus, two teams will be able to break a losing streak that was left behind for the two teams that will face each other on the Pedro Ferrándiz court. On the one hand, an HLA Alicante in which Walter Jr. has dropped out after adding four consecutive victories and, on the other, an EasyCharger Palencia that got the thorn of victory last weekend in his fiefdom. A special duel for the coach of Palencia since Pedro Rivero will face what was his first team as a coach, rivaling in turn the one who was his coach for some years.
The “day” will conclude on Thursday evening, taking Melilla Sport Capital to the Palacio de los Deportes de Huesca. There, Arturo Álvarez’s men will face a difficult match against Levitec Huesca La Magia with hardly any margin for error after reaping seven consecutive defeats. For this reason, Carlos Lanau’s team will have to take to the court with all their might, making the most of the good moment of an intractable Xavi Rey on both sides of the court.
