Powerful win by U16 in the second day of the Spanish Championships in La Seu d’Urgell, this time over EM Santander (96-42).
CBA performed from lowest to highest since it was winning 16-14 in minute 7 and finished the first quarter with 26-14. Since then Santander could not follow the Academy’s rhythm (53-20 at halftime) and later CBA’s defense maintained its hardness; that is why the distance grew up to more than 50 points.
José Pérez was the top scorer with 24 points whereas Azael Trujillo reached 18 points and 11 rebounds; Luis Antonio Álvarez, 17 points and 13 rebounds; and Li Shengzhe, 11 points and 9 rebounds. Furthermore, Sergio Perdomo also stood out with 7 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists for 20 ranking points.
Tomorrow Tuesday 26th of May CBA is going to play vs Joventut in the last game of the first round at 12:30 am at Palau d’Esports in La Seu d’Urgell. Another victory would qualify CBA as the first of Group F and in the 1/8 Samuel Sosa’s team would play on Wednesday at 12:00 am at Palau d’Esports in La Seu vs the 2nd in Group E, which could be either Unicaja, L’Hospitalet, Lucentum or Cabañas del Valle. If CBA lost to Joventut, the rival would be the first of that Group E at 12:00 am at Pol. d’Andorra.
Let’s go, CBA!
