The BSR Amiab Albacete defeat Ilunion and repeat the Champions Cup final


BSR Amiab Albacete beat CD Ilunion (81-63) this Friday in the Spanish duel in the semifinals of the 2023 Champions Cup Final Four, held at the De Kooi Sportcenter in Bemmel (Holland), with which they will seek to revalidate their European champion title against RSB Thuringia Bulls or RSV Lahn-Dill.

The team led by Abraham Carrión will face one of the two German participants in search of the defense of the title, plugged in from the beginning in the game that opened the ‘Final Four’. Thus, the La Mancha team took the first quarter 22-16.

The good feelings of the current champion did not change in the second quarter, with a good income at halftime (42-30). It was after the locker room period that Ilunion’s reaction came to close the gap, but Amiab remained solid and withstood the attacks in a very even third act.

The team from La Mancha faced the decisive stage with an income of +12 that they knew how to manage to opt to be champion again and leave behind the disappointment of the final in the Copa del Rey two weeks ago. Mateusz Filipski, with 22 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists, was one of the most outstanding players of the match along with Philip Pratt (18 points), Alejandro Zarzuela (14) and Ben Fox (13).
