After the first game of the series, Cajasol Banca Civica Seville and Unicaja Malaga tied the game 80-80 after a great battle on the court. Satoransky, Urtasun and Triguero were the best on the local side, while Freeland dominated on the paint for Unicaja.
In one of the final test of preseason, Cajasol Banca Civica showed some signs of how successful the upcoming season may be. According to the way the team had to work during the summer without some key players due to international championships, the team managed to play very well against one of the strongest teams in Spain.
Juanjo Triguero showed that he will have again an important role in the team, not only as the substitue of Davis, but also increasing the defensive level of the game. In the same way, Urtasun is still an offensive reference, such as Satoransky, who will have more importance this year after the great development showed the last one. The new additions played correctly, specially Bogdanovic and Rubio, who scored 10 and 12 points each, while Jasen still has to join their teammates in the colective game.
Cajasol Banca Civica couldn’t use Davis, Calloway and Sastre because of injuries while English has yet to pass medical test after his arrival from Fiba Americas Championship. The champion of the regional tournament will be decided on Sunday in Malaga.
