CB Cazorla, the leader, won a decisive victory against Ecoculture CB Almeria in the final day of the EBA League group of D-A. This match was in which the Cazorla side was able to avenge the loss they suffered at the Almeria court's first round.
Two figures sum up what took place at the Jose Jorquera de la Hoz Municipal Pavilion during the EBA League match CB Cazorla Jaen Paraiso Interior vs CB Almeria. The 21-0 start for locals and the 40-22 result at the end the first quarter. The team who visits this court cannot do more than to accept their fate given these numbers.
Two of the most important players in the green ranks last season and the most loved by Cazorla fans were among the spectators: Placide Nakidjim and Lesaun Murphy. He also added luster to the great basketball party that ended a remarkable year 2017. It was a great way to remember it. Quarry Greenaway's dazzling dunks were a huge celebration on the court.
CB Cazorla was the clear leader of this group D/A before and during the entire game. CB Almeria was unable to stop the cazorlenos at the 6.75 line. They would eventually be outmatched by local players who managed 13 triples and only seven of the Almeria. There was no color in the rebound or in the success of the basket in this zone.
The scoreboard differences were therefore always within 20 points. This was despite the fact that the local bench rotations had no impact on this dynamic. Nine of the 11 players who make up the CB Cazorla team scored points for their locker. Jalen Riley and Quarry Greenaway were the most outstanding players with 23 and 24 points, respectively. For 33 PIR credits, the first player, who also had 10 rebounds, was the best on almost all fronts.
Angel Moro scored 12 points, played a solid defense and Steve Weidlich was a stellar outside shooter with four triples, made from seven attempts. The final score of 114-86 was the end of 2017 for Cazorla Basketball; of the dream in which CB Cazorla jaen Paraiso Interior has been ensconced in recent seasons, and which it still has not woken up from.
This is a great example of a hobby that encourages its players and, without doubt, deserves to be able to enjoy the best basketball in Jaen.
