ANDhe Joventut reached the final of the EncestaRías tournament with a great Vladimir Brodziansky (76-84), who beat a Rio Breogán that was 21 points down and had a reaction that served to tighten the score, but that did not conclude successfully.
Brodziansky scored 25 points (4 of 4 on triples) and finished the game with a PIR of 36 after completing his performance with 5 rebounds, a performance that Breogán, with Bell-Haynes (15 points) and Dzanan Musa (12) intoned, failed to counter on Jordan Sakho’s debut (11 points).
