Por Eurohoops team /

Iberostar Tenerife has emerged victorious from this afternoon’s showy and even duel against Valencia Basket, a match in which after a first half of equality, both teams achieved great sets that took them away on the scoreboard: the locals went ahead in the third fourth, while the visitors did it in the last, the important one, to end up winning by 89-95.

After the first two quarters of the game, in which both teams were exchanging blows without achieving notable advantages, the third quarter was clearly colored taronja: three triples from Prepelic and 9 points also from Labeyrie were key for the locals to get a 30-18 run.

But if the third quarter was from Valencia, the last one was clearly aurinegro, who with a partial of 16-30 countered the local advantage, which reached +12 at 74-62, and they got a seven-point lead entering the last two minutes of the game. The success from the triple of Tenerife was key in the comeback: 9 of 14 in the last two quarters for a great 13 of 24 accumulated throughout the game.

Despite local attempts to rejoin the game, the advantage between the two was already too high and Tenerife ended up taking the game 89-95. Tenth victory for Iberostar Tenerife, which had its best man in Marcelinho Huertas with 22 points and 7 assists, in eleven games of the Endesa League, that could be positioned as a co-leader if Real Madrid loses its game against Manresa, while Valencia Basket still has not finished taking off in the league and is left with 4 wins and 6 losses.
