ORn free kick in the last second by the Ukrainian point guard Jerome Randle gave Coosur Real Betis against Monbus Obradoiro a victory that leaves the permanence very well on track for the Sevillians and does not allow the Galicians to breathe with complete tranquility before the final stretch.
Visiting center Steven Enoch won the start in both areas, with seven points and three blocks, but the Galicians noticed his step on the bench in the final minutes of the first period, when Coosur Betis took the lead thanks to ten points by James Feldeine (24-21, min. 10).
The tonic of equality continued in a second period in which Mombus Obradoiro hit more from long distance and was better able to contain the outer men of his rival, which caused the visitors to go to rest with a meager advantage in the electronic ( 41-44, min 20).
The defensive energy of the Betis when they returned from the dressing room blinded the way to Obradoiro’s ring, who found himself with the greatest disadvantage of the match (60-54, min. 27) when Feldeine scored a triple, the second for the locals after twelve attempts , which forced Moncho López to request a time-out.
Swedish forward Mike Czerapowicz scored five points that seemed to stop the bleeding suffered by the visitors but a basket with an additional shot by Borg and a penetration by Randle on the horn allowed the Sevillian team to increase their income with only ten minutes remaining (68 -59, min 30).
A 1-10 run at the beginning of the final quarter set the tie at 69 (min. 32), a new game in which Coosur Betis always maintained very short leads until Ozmizrak tied with two shots with four seconds to go, although another Randle’s personal launch after the final second left the victory in Seville.
