A statement that flew over each and every one of the previous matches of the third semifinal match and that did not stray a single centimeter from the reality that could be seen on the Pazo court where the Danish pivot became the worst nightmare of a HLA Alicante that he could not with his inertia).
Because from the very first jump, Larsen was the owner and lord of a painting in which he stood out with 23 points (3/5 TL and 9/13 TC), 7 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 recovery and 4 received fouls that ended up paving the way for the Lugo team to the long-awaited final.
Thus, Larsen managed to infect the Lugo fans with his game on a night in which the team reconciled in a big way with a basketball that will give them the opportunity to fight now for the return to the Endesa League.
An objective that, with Kevin Larsen in their ranks, it will surely be a little easier …
Up to five had been the occasions in which the dominator Kevin Larsen (Río Breogán) had been able to inscribe his name in the ideal quintet throughout a season marked by regularity.
