The Lenovo Tenerife conquers Europe from Bilbao

The Canarian squad prevails (87-98) over BAXI Manresa in the Spanish final of the FIBA ​​Champions


Lenovo Tenerife was proclaimed champion of the FIBA ​​Champions this Sunday by beating BAXI Manresa (87-98) in the Spanish final held at the Bilbao Arena, thanks to a great second half.

The Canarian team, champion of the tournament in its first edition in 2017, won its second European title to fuel a glorious season with the Endesa League playoffs as the final fireworks. A 17-33 in the third quarter marked the game.

At the beginning, both teams came out with a lot of offensive effort, with Salin and Moneke, MVP of the competition, very connected. Dani Pérez continued to give the Manresans a good rhythm while Shermadini and Huertas connected before the break against the Canaries (50-59).

Going through changing rooms did not sit well with Pedro Martínez’s men, while Txus Vidorreta managed to raise his team’s defense to make a difference. Wiltjer and Doornekamp joined the success that was leaving Manresa behind, far from giving the bell.

In their first continental final, those from El Bages did not go down without a fight, but the aurinegro team dressed their showcases a bit more, as they will want to do with the FIBA ​​Intercontinental Cup. Huertas (13 points and 14 assists) was the best but he was well accompanied.
