PABLO ROMERO / COMMUNICATION AREA FEB
The horn sounded on the floor of the Granada Sports Palace and joy seized the expedition of the Breogán River. A party that began with the nearly 50 fans displaced to the Nasrid capital to enjoy one of those nights with which to enter history.
And it was not for less since the celestial set had just been proclaimed LEB Gold League champion thus signing his return to the Endesa League. All an objective that stood out from any other detail of the game and that in turn diminished the importance of what happened on the Andalusian parquet.
Because the success of the team Diego epifanio came through a group that came to place up to five of his men in the ideal quintet of the day with an honorable mention for his starting forward, the forward Adam Sollazzo. Quite a leader in valuation who was able to reach 21 points through his solidity on both sides of the court.
And all of it through 15 points (4/6 TL and 5/12 TC), 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 recoveries, 1 block and 6 fouls received that contributed to the balance of their team in a duel without any hurry in the electronic ().
Numbers that were well worth a second MVP that, this time more than ever, was really the least …
Had already achieved Adam Sollazzo (Breogán River Milk) a first MVP this season, although on that occasion, shared with his former partner Davis Rozitis (Girona Basketball). A premiere that was already a declaration of intent by a player who ended his 2/2 in Granada. Two consecutive promotions after being harvested last year with Delteco Gipuzkoa and which give him 100% effectiveness in the competition.
Word of MVP: “We have shown that we deserved to be ACB”
Days of vertigo for the staff of a Río Breogán that, after winning the promotion, returned home this Monday to celebrate the title with their fans.
A group that enjoyed their last hours together after having been proclaimed League champions in a game that, as Adam Sollazzo explains, was a demonstration of character: “We wanted to show that we were the best team in the League and we just jumped on the court ready to show it through our game. We started the game with a lot of energy and that allowed us to take an advantage that was key. We arrived at the great moment prepared to be able to win the game and we did not waste our moment “.
A duel in which Adam felt really comfortable helping his team achieve the great goal: “From the first moment I was very psyched on the idea of ??being able to play a good game. I did not think of anything other than being able to leave the track with victory. I wanted to win, but not only for myself, I wanted to do it for my teammates, my coaches, our fans and all the people of Lugo “.
The best possible way to close an unbeatable season for the interests of the Lugo team as explained by the outside of the Galician team: “I am very proud to have been able to help the Río Breogán to return to the Endesa League. We had worked very hard throughout the season to achieve our goal and to show that we deserved to be at ACB. I honestly believe that we are the team that has worked the hardest for this and that is why we have deserved the promotion ”.
A year that Adam hopes will help him take the final step towards the Endesa League: “Not many players can say that they have won two Cup titles and two Leagues in a row. This makes me feel very proud because all the work I have done throughout my career has been rewarded. I think this season I have shown that I can be prepared to play in ACB and hopefully the opportunity will come soon “.
The quintet of the day in the LEB Oro:
It was the last game of the season and, therefore, the most decisive of the season. A clash in which it was only worth winning and in which the players of Río Breogán soaked up the message to be able to dominate the match from start to finish.
Thus, up to five of his men were able to reach an ideal quintet dominated from start to finish by their players to end up deciding the promotion in their favor. The first of them, a Roope ahonen who signed his best match of the course with a great success from the outside line. The second, a Erik quintela that pulled feeling to calm the meeting and, the third, a Adam Sollazzo who served as the MVP of Lugo, thus closing the triple role of the team from the perimeter.
A domain that their teammates did not hesitate to spread in the inner game through the weight under the hoops of some Kevin Larsen and Ivan Cruz intractable to be one of the keys to the ascent.
