Pedro Martínez's men made a good start to the game, again with a high intensity and a choral game. This allowed them to catch the first differences in electronics, which came to nine points at the end of the first quarter (18-27).
In the second, the Manresa team did not slow down and remained very successful in the launch. In addition, they knew how to take advantage of the opponent's lost balls to make good counterattacks. All this made them reach the break with a margin of thirteen points (42-55).
In the second half the Italians came dangerously close to the scoreboard thanks to their dominance of the rebound, but then Moneke and Thomasson appeared to hold the visitors, which closed the third quarter with nine points of income (67-76).
In the last ten minutes, the figure of Luke Maye appeared, who with three consecutive three-pointers cut any attempt to come back from the home team. From there, the Bages team had no trouble securing victory.
There won’t be too much time for celebrations. as both teams will face each other again on Thursday from 21:00, this time in the Nou Congost.
