102-73. Baskonia destroys Murcia from the start – EFE News


Vitoria, December 4 (EFE).- Cazoo Baskonia destroyed UCAM Murcia this Sunday from the start and gave their rival no choice in a duel that ended in a wide victory 102-73, marked by the external success that confirmed the good time of the Basque team.

The triple opened the first differences for the Vitorials, who signed 48% at this distance, and dominated their defense rival.

The trio made up of Matt Costello -31 PIR credits-, Rokas Giedraitis -25 points and five clear 3-pointers- and Pierrià Henry, who dominated the game with 11 points and 8 assists, carried the weight of the match during a team which returned at the end of a choral match despite the absence of Vanja Marinkovic, due to retirement, Tadas Sedekerskis, due to injury, and Maik Kotsar due to a technical decision.

On the Murcia side, Travis Trice’s 21 points were the anecdote of a match that fell flat.

The azulgranas entered fully with their feet and marked the first differences with a first partial of 11-2, thanks to the success of the outside shot.

The Murcians were forced to tighten their defense to avoid free-kicks from the hosts, who struggled to stop the pace of point guard Travis Trice, the biggest threat to Sito Alonso’s men, as Thad McFadden was closely watched by the outsiders of Basque painting.

Matt Costello and Pierrià Henry raised the defensive level of Baskonia, who closed the first round with a three-pointer from Daulton Hommes to open the gap again with a 29-12 lead.

The match was tighter, but the counterattack and the speed of transition favored Joan Peñarroya’s team, waiting to maintain a high pace and shut down Murcian foreign production.

Georgian Rati Andronikashvili made his debut for the UCAM jersey with very good manners and self-confidence in the direction, which made university students look different.

However, the difference was already around 20 points and the Catalans played comfortably with a two-on-two that gave them plenty of comebacks.

The game went to half-time with the score at 49-30, a difference that widened at the start of a third round that served to end a game that went uphill for an unknown UCAM, mediated by the first shot Baskonia put in. Begin.

The three-pointer, the creativity of Pierrià Henry and the inspiration of Rokas Giedraitis were a headache for the Murcian team, who found no answer and found themselves at 36 points before the end of the third quarter -time, 85-49.

The last quarter was a procedure in the result, but not in the game, since the academics did not throw in the towel and sought to close the gap.

Indeed, the visitors won the last quarter of a duel which ended with a score of 102-73.
