The RETAbet Bilbao Basket sealed, with a resounding 94-73 victory over the Joventut de Badalona in Miribilla, his stay in the ACB, which was more than complicated just ten days ago.

Since then, when, just out of confinement due to an outbreak of Covid-19 in its staff, it was almost down after also falling at the Bilbao Arena in front of the Herbalife Gran Canaria, the Basque team had to win three of the four games that had been postponed and wait for the Students, who rested this day and is the team that has finally descended, fell on Friday on their court against him Inherit San Pablo Burgos.

Vladimir Brodziansky (24 and 31) and Ferran bassas (11, 6 assists and 24) led a ‘Penya’ who did not play anything and who already knew that she finished seventh no matter what happened.

If the last game of the Bilbao Basket against him Real Madrid It had started out on an accident, with the blow to a Jenkins after a head clash with Alex Tyus, in this Sunday the incident occurred before it started.

But the third lack of Jenkins and a 0-4 with baskets of Vine Y Tomic (31-29) reminded those of Mumbrú that they should still work a victory that, however, began to be confirmed with the subsequent 10-0 (31-29) before the free throw of Brodziansky that left the 41-30 with which the rest was reached.
