Pecius joined the orange discipline just started the 2019/20 season due to the long-term absence of Mike DiNunno. He quickly entered the team dynamics and became the leader and the extension of the coach on the field, masterfully controlling the rhythm of play and direction of the team in attack, and setting the level of intensity and demand in defensive position. The season passed with the team growing over the days, until COVID paralyzed the competition. Last season, in the last and inconsequential game of the first phase of the competition, he was seriously injured. The team under his leadership was in excellent dynamics when the decisive phase of the championship began. The outcome of it is already known to all: defeat in the third and decisive semifinal match of the promotion play-off. Among the orange fans there will be forever the question of how the season would have ended if Pecius had not been injured.
The player is currently recovering from his injury, which is estimated to last until the end of the year, although the player and the club agree not to set deadlines for his return to training and incorporation into the group dynamics to guarantee that when he does is fully recovered.
From Basketball Coruña SAD, we are very happy and satisfied to be able to announce the extension of the contract of Pecius, a player much loved by the orange fans for his involvement, work and leadership on and off the field. We hope that he makes a full recovery so that he can enjoy basketball again and help the team in the later phase of the season. Forza Pecius, forza Leyma !.
