Half regular season will be reached after this game, in which the men of Ibon Navarro can get the classification for the King's Cup.
You reach the equator of the regular league, and BAXI Manresa receives the MoraBanc Andorra (this Saturday at 20:30). The locals have won four consecutive wins in the Endesa League and would like to continue with the streak, while those in the Pyrenees could qualify as the series leaders for the King's Cup. A great atmosphere is expected at the New Gorge, where the BAXI Manresa will not be able to count on the injured Ferrari and Pérez .
The BAXI Manresa had a positive week after winning the Buesa Arena, and with their subsequent comfortable victory at home against Strasbourg. Pedro Martinez's men want to keep up the streak, which is for the fourth time in a row winning the Endesa League. A player will have to be ruled out, which will be decided in tomorrow's training.
The MoraBanc Andorra has won the last two games of the Endesa League, and with quite wide differences. In the last match they beat Zaragoza by 28 points, third behind Barça and Madrid. Three old acquaintances return to the New Gorge: the pivot Dejan Musli and the coach Ibon Navarro and Paco Vázquez . They will not be able to count on the pivot Moussa Diagne, now the statistical leader of the team. Yes, it will be Clevin Hannah (12.7 points and 3.9 assists). A dangerous team, talented and physically fit, and looking forward to a victory in the Copa del Rey de Málaga.
Coach Pedro Martínez said before this game that "the rotations we have to make between league and Champions is annoying, but it is there; MoraBanc Andorra is playing Serie A in the King's Cup, it will be a very difficult game against a team that has a lot of strength in the outside players, and inside they are athletic and talented; we will try our best to compete the match ».
