BAXI Manresa continues to show very good feelings during the pre-season. The Bages team was about to win a new Catalan League in the final against one of the best teams in Europe, but the last play did not go well and the title went to Barça (81-79).
After a very level start, with exchange of baskets and alternatives on the scoreboard, Pedro Martínez's players, led by a Badio in a great state of form, took command against their powerful rival and closed the first quarter with two income points (18-20).
In the second, the Manresa team continued to show a high level of play, and this fact allowed them to be superior to the Blaugrana. In addition, Taylor hit from long range and led his team to a thirteen-point margin at the half of the match (34-47).
Returning from the changing rooms, things were very different. Barça came out on the court much more intense in defense and managed to slow down the offensive play of the Bages team. In attack, Roger Grimau's men found success in the launch, and all this allowed them to hit a strong partial 32-11 to come back and be eight points ahead at the end of the third quarter (66-58) .
In the last ten minutes, the Manresa team continued to show their competitive spirit and did not allow the Blaugrana to escape in the electronic. Little by little, they closed the gap, and with 25 seconds left, Badio equalized. In the subsequent move, Vesely scored from underneath, and in the final the Senegalese's three-pointer came out of time.
Friday from 20:00, new pre-season duel for BAXI Manresa at the court of Casademont Zaragoza.
