MADRID, 28 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) –
Bàsquet Girona beat Dreamland Gran Canaria (88-64) on the second day of the Endesa League this Thursday to add their second victory, while Joventut debuted its winning record with a comeback (86-80) against Coviran Granada .
Salva Camps’ team was able to defeat Valencia Basket at home over the weekend and, in their debut in Fontajau, they gave their fans two out of two. Ike Iroegbu led the hosts with 17 points in an overwhelming first half for the hosts, which condemned a ‘Granca’ team that did not find its game or its artillery.
Yves Pons finished off the Canaries in the third quarter and Girona ended up flying in a pavilion that starts the season with a good smile. Those from Las Palmas, who had beaten BAXI Manresa in the first match, lost, in addition to the match, that good taste in their mouths in Girona.
Meanwhile, Joventut took revenge with suspense for its defeat in the derby against Barça, against a Granada that once again saw a victory that it had in its hands disappear. After losing in extra time against UCAM Murcia, the Andalusian team made a comeback in Badalona led by Andrés Feliz (22 points).
The green-black point guard scored 12 minutes into the last quarter and saved the furniture for a Joventut that also had good numbers in Ante Tomic (15 points and 21 PIR) and Chinanu Onuaku (14).
