The penultimate day of the Endesa Women’s League leaves us, as a noteworthy note, the classification of Durán Maquinaria Ensino for the playoffs. Heats up that are exciting and for which there is still a place to be determined. Along with the leadership, that will be the great workhorse in the remaining matches.
GAME PLAYED ON MONDAY 22:
Perfumerías Avenida vs Embutidos Pajariel Bembibre (76-45) / Statistics
The leader does not lower the piston in his last autonomic derby
With Silvia Domínguez and Andrea Vilaró resting to recover from their respective discomforts, Perfumerías Avenida was able to counteract their respective absences with their usual collective contribution. Thus, Maite Cazorla assumed command in the direction to steadily lead a team that did not take long to add its first income against a Pajariel Bembibre who managed to hold the guy through the points of Lashann Higgs (18-14). But a regular when it comes to breaking matches such as Katie Lou Samuelson had already begun to do her own thing in a first room in which the first ways of breaking up began to be sensed. Thus, the North American was key when it came to being able to distance hers on the scoreboard against an opponent who was outmatched by the Salamanca defense (42-21). With the match fully controlled and a score of minutes still ahead, Roberto Íñiguez did not forget the work of the juniors, giving again minutes of play to a Paula Suárez who came to enjoy more than enough time to be able to like herself with her first assists of the night. Undoubtedly, an award backed by the good work, award of a team that did not take long to close the match. A key victory when it comes to keeping their first place (76-45).
MVP: Emese Hof (Perfumerías Avenida) – 21 rating
GAME PLAYED ON SUNDAY 21:
Spar Girona vs Quesos El Pastor (71-109) / Statistics
Record of triples of LF Endesa (20) for Spar Girona in Zamora
Spar Girona recovered from the elimination against Perfumerías Avenida in the Women’s Euroleague with a resounding victory in Zamora that meant the farewell, for the moment, of Ángel Nieto from the Castilian city to the Endesa Women’s League. The team led by Alfred Julbe was a real cyclone during the first half against a Quesos El Pastor that is already planning the next season in which it will try to return to the top category. Spar Girona will close the regular season next weekend by welcoming Perfumerías Avenida in a new classic. A meeting that will come after having broken the record for triples in the competition and leaving it at 20. The previous mark belonged to Baxi Ferrol, with 18, for three years.
MVP: Giedre Labuckiene (Spar Girona) – 25 rating
GAMES PLAYED ON SATURDAY 20:
Alter Enersun Al-Qázeres vs Campus Promete (75-69) / Statistics
The City of Cáceres says goodbye with a victory for Alter Enersun
Once the relegation was certified last weekend, Alter Enersun Al-Qázeres brought out his pride to achieve a victory with which to momentarily dismiss Ciudad de Cáceres from the Endesa Women’s League. A meeting in which the locals were in command at all times with an outstanding Vicky Llorente (11 points and 10 rebounds). The Campus Promete paid for the bad third quarter that it completed, although yes, it did not lower its arms at any time and forced Jacinto Carbajal’s men to wait until the last minute to seal a very special victory.
MVP: Vicky Llorente (Alter Enersun Al-Qázeres) – 22 ratings
SPAR Gran Canaria vs Cadí La Seu (74-71) / Statistics
Fourth consecutive victory for SPAR Gran Canaria
The SPAR Gran Canaria continues without loosening at the foot. In a tight and exciting match, he beat Cadí La Seu to keep the flame of the playoffs alive for the Canarian team. Clearly from less to more in this season of his return to LF Endesa, SPAR Gran Canaria accumulates a series of four consecutive wins that, with two games to play, keep the dream of playing the playoffs alive. A playoffs that get very uphill for a Cadí La Seu in which Ari Pujol signed an outstanding performance in Gran Canaria.
MVP: Sika Koné (SPAR Gran Canaria) – 30 rating
Lointek Gernika vs Casademont Zaragoza (87-47) / Statistics
The Lointek Gernika is remade in a big way
After returning from Romania with a defeat in the extra time of the round of 16 of the Eurocup, Lointek Gernika made up for it on their return to domestic competition as the great team that they are. The Casademont Zaragoza held on and maintained the type during the first half, but after the restart it was running out of strength before the pupils of Mario López, very successful from the triple and with great internal strength. With this victory that begins the particular ‘madness of March’ of the Basque team and the stumble of Movistar Estudiantes, Mario López’s team takes a giant step to finish in fourth position in the table.
MVP: Margaret Roundtree (Lointek Gernika) – 19 rating
IDK Euskotren vs Ciudad de La Laguna (71-76) / Statistics
The Ciudad de La Laguna complicates the options of the IDK Euskotren
Ciudad de La Laguna Tenerife leaves Gasca with an outstanding victory under their arms, the fifteenth of the season for the Canarian team. IDK Euskotren kept their options until the end, but the visiting team knew better how to handle the decisive moments of the match. Those of Azu Muguruza continue to depend on themselves, but to ensure their pass to the qualifying rounds and not pull the calculator, they will have to beat Lointek Gernika or Valencia Basket at home on Thursday next weekend.
MVP: Tanaya Atkinson (City of La Laguna) – 20 rating
Movistar Estudiantes vs Valencia Basket (68-85) / Statistics
Valencia Basket keeps the fight for the lead red hot
Valencia Basket took advantage of the dynamics of their historic qualification for the Eurocup Final Four to complete an unforgettable week with a great victory in Madrid. A whirlwind outing of the taronja (2-16) ended up marking the future of the match of the day on Teledeporte. Encounter in which Rubén Burgos’ team knew how to handle the harvested income to perfection. Movistar Estudiantes, with a motivated Jana Raman in front of his former team, did not stop fighting against a rival who continues to aspire to finish in first position in the regular phase. The schoolboys, meanwhile, are left with practically no options to face the quarterfinals with the home court factor in their favor.
MVP: Queralt Casas (Valencia Basket) – 20 rating
Kutxabank Araski vs Durán M. Ensino (65-67) / Statistics
Durán Maquinaria certifies the pass in a great game
Great game in Mendizorroza that concludes with the mathematical classification of Durán Maquinaria Ensino for the playoffs for the title. Spectacular match in which Kutxabank Araski had possession in the last second to force extra time. Those of Made Urieta made a great effort, but two free throws by Helena Oma in the last second ended up unleashing euphoria on the visiting bench. Faced with the loss of Hempe, Chatrice White expanded under the hoops to sign an outstanding performance with 15 points and 18 rebounds. The duel began with a beautiful tribute to Tania Pérez, who announced her retirement this week.
MVP: Chatrice White (Durán Maquinaria Ensino) – 34 valuation
