BAXI Manresa won its sixth victory in the Endesa League after storming the difficult court of Bàsquet Girona (79-86). The Bages team, who had the support of the numerous fans present in Fontajau, dominated in the electronic for the majority of the match.
At the start of the match, the defenses clearly prevailed over the attacks, and in addition, both teams were very uncertain in their shooting. This meant that there was equality on the scoreboard at all times, as neither team managed to open a hole (12-12 at the end of the first quarter).
In the second, visitors who dominated the rebound came out better than their rival, and in just five minutes they obtained a twelve point difference (19-31). The home team, led by Colom, closed the gap and were within six points at the halfway point of the match (33-39).
Ringing from the dressing rooms, the Manresa team got off to a good start again and widened the lead to seventeen points, which forced Aíto García Reneses to stop the game (35-52). The team from Girona were only eight points behind, but then Adam Waczynski appeared who, with two three-pointers and four free throws, led his team at the end of the third quarter (54-66).
In the last ten minutes, the home team did not give up and were only seven points behind with just over three minutes to play (71-78). However, the Bages team did not get nervous, they sealed another victory and bravely made the numerous fans who traveled to Fontajau enjoy themselves.
On Wednesday from 21:00, BAXI Manresa will recover a postponed match, and will do so on one of the most complicated courts in the Endesa League, that of a Lenovo Tenerife that will also be, subsequently, their opponent in the tie of the quarter-finals of the Basketball Champions League.
