Perfect weekend for CBA Senior in Lanzarote! Not only it promoted to 1st Autonomica yesterday by reaching the Finals but also succeeded in the last game vs C.D. Loyola (72-68) and became the 2nd Division champion.
After beating the Grancanarian rival in the previous three match-ups of the season, Canarias Basketball Academy knew how to suffer during a hard fight in which Loyola did not surrender (16-14 in the first quarter, 36-32 at halftime and 54-51 in the third one).
Loyola even led the scoreboard in the last period (60-63) but CBA’s intense defense helped get the control of the game again. There was a tie in the last minute (68-68) but an ofensive rebound and a fantastic final defense were crutial for the success. Therefore, the Academy finishes the season on the top.
