MADRID, 23 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) –
Unicaja solved this Friday with great authority its duel against the Dutch Heroes Den Bosch, whom they beat at the José María Martín Carpena Pavilion by 114-58 to qualify for the final of their qualifying round to access the FIBA Champions League, where they awaits the Slovenian Levice.
The team from Malaga hardly had any problems in their European debut, supported both by great offensive basketball and a good defensive firmness against which their rival, already with a match in their legs, found no answer. Kendrick Perry, with 22 points and 7 assists, was the best of the hosts, where European champions Alberto Díaz and Darío Brizuela played.
Ibon Navarro’s team started very strong and already opened a first gap at the end of the first ten minutes (26-16), which they widened at halftime in a much clearer way (53-29). Unicaja did not relax and with his 61 points in the second half he was not in trouble and was able to save his strength for his decisive duel on Sunday against Patrioti Levice, who comfortably beat the Finnish Karhu Kauhajoki 81-57.
