In a weekend with two titles for the sections, roller hockey brushed the enrollment by sweeping the Catalan League, handball passed the Super Cup to Ademar and basketball suspended losing the final of the Catalan League against Manresa.
“We have not trained well this week and we have not played well either & rdquor ;, commented Jasikevicius after the final. In fact, in the ‘semis’ against Penya, Barça only offered a great third quarter in a rather gray duel on a global level.
It is not necessary to dramatize, but the defeat against Manresa in which Pedro Martínez continues to perform ‘miracles’ exposed some deficiencies in the team without forgetting that the casualties of Sertaç Sanli and Pierre Oriola were key.
Without the Turkish or the Catalan, ‘Rambo’ Davies was left alone under the hoops with the only help of an Ibou Badji who is still ‘green’ and who got a blast from Saras for not doing something for which he is capable: ‘bursting’ the hoop.
Besides the lousy performance by Mirotic in the final with -3 Valuation, they were not fine in the Higgins perimeter or especially Abrines. Furthermore, Laprovittola shot considerably better than he directed.

In the opposite section, exciting minutes of Jokubaitis in ‘semis’ and very notable Rolands Smits in the final. The Latvian continues to step forward largely because of his attitude and nonconformity. It is always exemplary.
Despite being the least important title of the course and some ‘buts’ in the arbitration criterion that should not cloud the superb meeting of BAXI Manresa, the Catalans have before them this week a great opportunity to do clean slate with the Endesa Super Cup.
The Barça, that does not raise this title from 2016 still with Xavi Pascual, Valencia Basket is measured in the semifinals on Saturday with host Lenovo Tenerife and Real Madrid in the other duel.
Joan Peñarroya, coach of Valencia Basket
“I have not yet been able to have five players in training. It is clear that it is not the ideal situation to face a tournament like the Super Cup, but We will give everything & rdquor ;, he commented this Tuesday Joan Peñarroya, new coach ‘taronja’.
On the third weekend of this September, the Women’s Super Cup also in Tenerife and the draw has brought an exciting duel between Spar Girona and Perfumerías Avenida this Tuesday in a semi-final that will be completed by Clarinos and Valencia Basket.
