BAXI Manresa played a new close final on the court of one of the revelations of the Endesa League, Río Breogán, but this time it was not possible to take the victory to the capital of Bages (98 -94). Maye's two free throws missed in the final seconds weighed too heavily on the final result.

In the second, Pedro Martínez's players were able to keep the lead until the last four minutes, but then the home team scored up to four three-pointers that allowed them to turn the score around and reach the break with four points margin (53-49).

Returning from the locker rooms, the tone was one of equality between the two sets, and this favored a home team that was always ahead, albeit with short advantages. At the end of the third quarter, 74-68 and all to decide in the last ten minutes.

In these, neither team was able to break the duel, and this had to be decided in a new final friction. Then, Maye had three free throws to tie a few seconds before the end, but could only score one, and this took advantage of Breogán to leave the victory in Galicia.

After two consecutive games away from home, BAXI Manresa will play again in front of their fans on Sunday from 20:00 in the visit of UCAM Murcia.
