The Basquet country has 7-9 record, find themselves in 10th position, followed by CBA (6-10).

According to head coach, Pepe Carrión, the rival “is one of the teams we have to compete against in the standings. Maybe its main characteristics are its high rhythm during the games always trying to run, its great 1 on 1 and 2 on 2 players driving to the basket and its powerful centers in the offensive rebound”.

In that sense, the Sevillian coach affirms that “we are going to try to control the rhythm to strengthen our defense without penetrations towards the rim”.

The previous encounter was in the third game and CBA Gran Canaria lost 72-56 at Polideportivo Municipal de Azpeitia, with many changes to the roster, this encounter may have a different outcome.

In the last game, Sammic ISB was defeated by Barça (74 – 85) with Ánder Arruti and Federico Uclés being the most efficient players with 22 points. For its part, the host gained an important win over Marín Peixegalego, in which Konstantin Kulikov stood out with 21 ranking points.

Finally, the designated officials by the Spanish Basketball Federation to call this game are Mariano Palomo and Rafael Bey.
