CLaro triumph of Lenovo Tenerife over Acunsa GBC (98-69) in a clash always dominated by the Canarian team, which had its most decisive player in the pivot Gio Shermadini.
A great merit of the Tenerife team, not only for the victory achieved against the Gipuzkoan team, but for the way they do it, and, in addition, already adding the twenty-sixth.
This Thursday, against Acunsa GBC, he showed his strength and solvency on the court, dominating mainly the inside game, but with offensive resources to be able to overcome the adversary.
Lenovo Tenerife started the game in a big way, that is, 13-0 on the scoreboard and against an Acunsa GBC who did not know where to break the rival defense.
Little by little, the visiting team was entering the match and already in the second quarter they raised their defensive level, took advantage of the break given to Shermadini and played with greater speed. This led him to get fully into the game and get within two points (34-32) with six minutes remaining to reach the break.
The Tenerife team put things back in their place, if they already dominated the inside game with clarity, the island group found another way to score, one of them their vertical attacks towards the basket, as well as trying from outside with very good success of the exteriors.
Again, the Lenovo Tenerife reached a comfortable difference of ten points before reaching the break (46-36), reaching the end of the second quarter with a clear 52-40.
The island team managed to make even more differences in the third quarter. Gio Shermadini reached 20 points scored to make it 58-43 and although Acunsa GBC had phases of the game where they cut differences, Lenovo Tenerife had the game in their hands and dominated until the end.
