Murcia, 29 years (EFE).- El Cazoo Baskonia continues in the fourth position of the Endesa League, now with a bagaje of 14 wins and 4 derrotas, to impose himself by 80-87 at UCAM Murcia in a game that dominated from the beginning up to the leader of Vanja Marinkovic.
UCAM Murcia has prepared the meeting as a homenaje to José Luis Mendoza, who was president and owner of the club, failed last week, but can’t dedicate a victory to her.
The game started with the injury of Markus Howard, who touched the right sideboard with only three minutes of play transcurrido. This incident did not go down to his team and less to Marinkovic, who disappeared to Baskonia in the scorer with diez puntos sin foul including two triples (9-16).
Sito Alonso paró el rendezvous with un tiempo muerto que hizo reaccionar a los suyos y, con 19-21, fue Joan Peñarroya el que intervino de la banda. The first quarter ended with a +4 for Cazoo (19-23).
The second period saw the recovery of UCAM, looked after by a good Ilimane Diop, who worked well in embassies and joined her. A triple suyo puso con ventaja a los granas mucho tiempo después with a 33-31.
Another time Marinkovic appeared to, with other points more in this cuarto, demonstrate that the conjunto vitoriano llegó a Murcia dispuesto a imposer su poderío: 36-41 al descanso.
Over the course of the season, the visitors made the direct move and made the greatest difference with two triples followed by Rokas Giedraitis (45-56).
La buena defensa del Baskonia, tras el esfuerzo hecho el viernes en la Euroliga ganando en la prórroga por 114-111 al Anadolu Efes Turkish, current champion of Europe, was decisive and, in weighing the intents of his rival to estrechar los guarismos, se plantó en el último cuarto con un colchón de Siete Tantos (56-63) gracias también al juego interior de Maik Kotsar.
The joint Vasco did not keep the result and in the last period he wanted to accelerate to reach his goal (60-71).
The UCAM CB was welcomed by the inspiration of Thad McFadden, who, with three triple marks from the house, placed the scorer at 69-75.
Los de Sito pelearón hasta el final por explotar sus opciones (78-84 y posesión con 54 segundos por jugar). Travis Trice, who stopped scoring a triple, failed to hit the ball with the grain and continued two free shots annotated by Matt Costello sent the duel.
