This afternoon’s match that is usually called dog-faced by SPAR Gran Canaria at the La Paterna Pavilion in front of Cadí La Seu (6:00 p.m., Feb.tv), in which the island team plays their last cartridges for trying to sneak into the Playoff of the fight for the title in the absence of two rounds.
To do this, the players led by José Carlos Ramos will have to hurry their options by winning the two remaining finals if they want to achieve the machado and wait for the results that occur between the clubs that are above right now in the classification table –IDK Euskotren , eighth with 13 wins and one game less; Kutxabank Araski, ninth with 12 victories–, in addition to trying to beat Cadí La Seu’s basket average this afternoon, after the Catalans won 82-69 (-13) in the first round clash.
Numerical cabal that have to start with a win this afternoon to keep the dream of the Playoff alive, a totally unrealistic goal for this team at the beginning of the season, even more so when it started with six defeats and that now, twenty-two games later, the team insular moves in other tasks.
So much has changed for SPAR that up to two of its squad members, Sika Koné and Sparkle Taylor, are fighting to be nominated as the best center and guard, respectively, of the season. Sublime.
The clash this afternoon also has a special incentive for the Gran Canaria Yurena Díaz, who returns to the house that forged her as a player.
