Spanish Mini Cup SemiFinal - Feb 17, 2023
No surprises for the final in the Minicup. Real Madrid and FC Barcelona just presented the two best teams, in terms of athleticism.
But it was easier for FC Barcelona. The catalan club dominated the game from the first quarter, with an incredible performance of Josué Oku, who scored only 4 points but added 28 rebounds, showing that his height is above the other U13 players. Valencia Basket tried to match the tendencies of the FC Barcelona game, but the Blaugrana team was too much for them, concluding the game with a 90-65 score.
In the other semifinal, Real Madrid suffered a little more. Aaron Ona appeared to save his team, with 31 points. Landoure showed again his strength in the zone, with 14 points and 16 rebounds, but they had to face one of the best talents in this Minicup: Nil Pozas scored 32 points, with 8/12 threes, an impressive performance for the young talent of Joventut.
In the 7th to 8th game, Real Betis outplayed Unicaja, winning the match 71-52.
Tomorrow, the final will be played in Olimpic Badalona, an historical place where the original Dream Team played for the Olympic Gold Medal.
