San Pablo Burgos postpones his ticket to the Final Eight

Those of Peñarroya fell before Igokea. McFadden tied the game at 75, but Clemmons took advantage of a failure on defense. Rivero had two free throws to force the extension.

The Hereda San Pablo Burgos could not certify his pass to the next round of the Champions League and will have to wait at least one more day after being defeated in the Coliseum against the Bosnian Igokea (77-75), in a match in which no fluid attack was seen by Joan Peñarroya's men.

Alex Renfroe and Jasiel Rivero were the baton of a team that on Thursday will meet again against the Bosnians, this time playing at home and in which they will again have a second chance to sneak into the Final at Eight.

The Burgos started the game well, with good minutes in the inside game especially by Jordan Sakho and Jasiel Rivero, who dominated in the paint against the good direction of Alex Renfroe, reaching a 16-21 advantage at the end of the first quarter .

But the second half was not at all favorable for Joan Peñarroya's team, as the good defense of Igokea translated into 12 points by the Burgos, several of them from Dejan Kravic, who again showed his best version on the hoops, but they left behind at halftime (36-33) .

Burgos did not find their usual rhythm of play on a day in which the triples did not enter although the first half started like a gale, with a 0-6 partial and reaching a four-point advantage with a Thad McFadden who scored to the annotation.

It was at a time of disconnection from San Pablo, when the Bosnians turned the game around, after six points and an exchange of baskets, and Nikola Jovanovic closed the third quarter dominating to bring his team's victory closer.

In the last quarter, Burgos were overwhelmed by a fresher rival who saw the hoop more easily and who reached the final minutes with a six-point lead (73-67) .

McFadden even tied the game with a triple (75-75), but in a poor defense by Rabaseda, Igokea scored the final two points, as Rivero missed two free throws.
