New appointment with the history of Hereda San Pablo Burgos. Today, at 22:00 (Teledeporte and Dazn), the Castilians face the Argentine Quimsa in the Obras Sanitarias pavilion in Buenos Aires (Argentina) for the first Intercontinental in their history, which in this edition will be played in a single match for COVID-19 and not in Final Four format as in the last two.

It is his second great international final after the FIBA Champions League won last October and another step in the incredible book of feats of a club that, remember, reached the elite of Spanish basketball in 2017, two years after replacing in LEB Gold to Tizona Basketball. Since that promotion, he has not stopped growing: from the only 13 victories in his ACB debut to the semifinals of the championship last summer in the Valencia bubble and his first appearance in the Copa del Rey this course. This Saturday, he can win his second ever title.

"We have never played a final like this and we are very excited to have a good game and to win," Álex Barrera, the last survivor of that promotion in 2017, explains to EFE. "We value this Intercontinental Cup a lot because it gives us the opportunity to face a Latin American champion and put ourselves there for a game of a new title. We are going to give the best of what we have ".

If Joan Peñarroya's men win, they would give Spain its ninth Intercontinental, in its different names and modalities, and the second in a row after the triumph of Lenovo Tenerife in the last edition. The Canaries have two in their showcases, one more than Barcelona and three less than Madrid (5), the absolute leader of a historical record that dominate Spain and Europe. The Old Continent has 12 different champions with 20 titles, while the Americans present 6 (two of them from the United States, Akron Wingfoots and Maryland Terrapins) and 8 cups (4 for the North Americans, 3 and 1). Argentina has only one winner: Obras Sanitarias, which won the Intercontinental in 1983.

Quimsa de Diamon Simpson

"We know it is difficult, but we prepare for that, to achieve difficult things," says Sebastián González, Quimsa coach. La Fusión or kimsa (three in Quichua), as it is known when it was founded in 1989 by the union of three clubs (Santiago Básquetbol Club, Inti Club and Estudiantes Unidos), reaches the Intercontinental as leader of the Argentine League (22-4 balance) and after defeating the Brazilian Flamengo in the final of the Champions America last season.

Y with an old acquaintance of the Endesa League: Diamon Simpson. The American power forward played for Movistar Estudiantes in two different stages (2014-15 and 2016). Although the leader of the team is his compatriot Brandon Robinson. The guard (1.98 meters and 31 years old) was the MVP of the Champions League final with 26 points and averaged 20.8 goals in the tournament. Scored 21 or more points in six games. Fabián Ramírez and Nicolás Capello are the other two stars of the Santiago del Estero team, where Gabriel Deck was formed, before leaving for San Lorenzo and, from there, to Real Madrid.
