PABLO ROMERO / COMMUNICATION AREA FEB
It will be remembered as the game with the second highest score of the Real Murcia Basketball since your arrival at LEB Gold League (102p) and as the biggest victory of the team of Rafa monclova in this still brief journey (+31), but above all, for having arrived at the most important moment of the season.
Because, in full search of permanence in the category, the Murcian team was able to sign a superb match in their fiefdom and against such a direct rival in the fight for permanence as is at this point the Tizona University of Burgos ().
A game that could not have another protagonist who was not one of the men with the most feeling of the squad, a Alex Hernandez whose quality is used to being at the service of the team and that, on this occasion, illuminated his own game to be able to reach the 38 valuation points at the end of 40 minutes.
All this through a commitment in which this experienced Murcian base was able to score 25 points (4/4 TL and 8/9 TC), capture 5 rebounds, distribute 4 assists, recover 2 balls and receive 6 personal fouls.
Thus, Álex managed to keep his team above the relegation places with six victories that bring the club closer to the top of his table where, why not dream, a place for access to the Playoffs will be put into play for promotion .
Because with Álex Hernández at this level, anything is possible …
He has almost two decades of basketball behind him and previous experience in the LEB Oro League in 2008, but they have had to spend a total of 152 matches with the LEB band for this successful Murcian point guard to have been able to celebrate his first award as MVP. A condition that he was able to boast of during his time in the Lithuanian League where he won the award on matchday 6 (2017/18) in which he signed 37 valuation goals that were to date as the top of his professional career. A figure that has exceeded this weekend with the +38 harvested with Real Murcia Basketball.
