A reborn Casademont
Saragossa continues to grow hand in hand with his new coach, Luis Casimir, after adding his fourth consecutive victory by defeating the MoraBanc
Andorra after a great second half.
The Aragonese team has gone from being Mr. Hyde to Dr. Jekyll since the arrival of the La Mancha coach with whom he has recovered the winning essence after coming off six consecutive defeats.
In a seen and unseen the Casademont
Saragossa is reminding the dynamic, attractive team, fierce in defense, although in this case only in the second half, and scorer that last season finished third in the regular league thanks to the experience of Casimir.
From the beginning of the confrontation the scoring rate was very high, with both teams more successful in attack than in defense but always with the visitors ahead on the scoreboard.
The hand team was not able to run and in positional attack they had a lot more problems than their rival to score, which they did much more easily.
Still Nico’s points Brussino, with 12 in this period, they prevented Ibón Navarro’s men from opening an important gap because the foreign advantage remained around six points.
Luis’s men Casimir were able to get back in front (35-34) in the 14th minute thanks to their success in the triple but the MoraBanc, with a 2-12 run in just two minutes based on a good defense that caused errors by the “rojillos” in attack, shot the lead to 9 points (37-46) to reach the intermediate with the biggest advantage of the of Principality until that moment, ten points (48-58).
The refreshment time allowed the locals to reconsider and see that the victory was in the defense because after conceding 58 points in 20 minutes it was difficult to think about winning without pressing back.
And they do it like that. A 21-8 run in the first four minutes of the third quarter, thanks to a great pressure behind that caused errors in his rival, changed the dynamics of the game and allowed him to turn the scoreboard and enter the last act ahead ( 76-72) to the Aragonese.
From then on, the Andorran team found it much more difficult to score against an opponent whose attack was working from defense and who knew how to manage the times to win comfortably.
