Movistar Estudiantes will travel to Multiusos de Cáceres on Friday night and will do so with the alarms on as the Madrid team pays a visit to a team that is not without difficulty. Because the Cáceres Multiusos de la humanity knows very well what it is like to defeat teams from the noble zone of the stature of Leyma Coruña or Acunsa Gipuzkoa in this course. An extra motivation for the Extremaduran team in the face of a duel with decades of history and in which Jota Cuspinera’s men will play a fact as valuable on a mental level as being able to lead the first break of the course.
And for this, the Madrid people will only be worth winning since from behind, the group of six victories has been pressing hard with the dispute even of a direct duel. The most attractive, the one that will close the day and that will take Unicaja Banco Oviedo to visit Riazor to test a Leyma Coruña who has accumulated six consecutive victories and who serves as the most fit team in the League. A group led by MVP Nick Ward and that will have to face a group that came back to win at Covirán Granada last week and that arrives with an ex like Jeff Xavier in its ranks or with an Oliver Arteaga who arrives after beating the all-time rebounding record in the competition.
Precisely the Covirán Granada will be the team that focuses the attention on Saturday afternoon, receiving at the Palacio de los Deportes the ICG Força Lleida, a dangerous team against which they will also seek a seventh victory that, in the case of EasyCharger Palencia, would pass for an away win against a Levitec Huesca who already knows what it is to win.
In between, the great jam in the middle of the table, the one starring those teams with four victories in their locker, will begin to be resolved on Friday night with a direct duel at Pisuerga between UEMC Real Valladolid and Melilla Baloncesto and with the TAU Castelló receiving a Juaristi ISB who will arrive after having added the second. A group that HLA Alicante aspires to hunt down on a Saturday afternoon in which they will visit CB Almansa with Afanion in his fiefdom.
Although the fight for permanence will also be very present in the different moments that make up the weekend, with the visit of the Juaristi ISB to the TAU Castelló and, especially, with the direct duel between Palmer Alma Mediterránea and CB Prat being both connoisseurs of the results of rivals such as a Levitec Huesca that will have come into play on Friday night. One step above, Bàsquet Girona will visit San Sebastián without Carles Marco on his bench to face an Acunsa Gipuzkoa willing to continue growing.
