ANDhe Coosur Real Betis has achieved this Sunday a victory against Morabanc Andorra that equates it to six wins with the two Basque teams at the bottom of the classification while complicating the access to the playoffs of the Pyrenean team, which remains far from the eighth square (69-61).
The first five baskets of the match, three from the locals and two from the visitors, were from beyond the 6.75 meter line and this start marked an opening quarter in which both teams exchanged triples, up to nine scored between the two contenders fifteen attempts (20-17).
A good defense allowed Coosur Betis to increase its income gradually throughout the second period, in which the Principality team could not get out of its offensive jam and which ended with two book-throwing shots from local point guard Mike Torres who established the maximum difference in score (42-33).
The first score of the third period, a triple by Australian Kay, made the income of a team, the Verdiblanco, overcome the ten barrier, which dominated the offensive rebound and thus prevented Morabanc Andorra from running, in addition to winning second shooting options.
The local advantage reached a maximum level of sixteen points (52-36, min. 26) but the visiting team remained with a thread of life thanks to the irruption in the meeting of its star, the point guard Clevin Hannah, almost unprecedented in all the first half and more successful after the restart.
A 0-7 run at the beginning of the final quarter tightened the score but the good appearance with five points of the point guard Jerome Randle, who had remained on the bench for twenty-seven minutes, ended up deciding a new defeat at home for the Andorrans, who did not they have been earning since November.
