There was a double dose of Spanish delight at the weekend as both Isaac Fotu and Mike Karena landed wins.
Fotu came up with 11 points (3/3FG, 5/8FT) and 6 rebounds as Zaragoza beat fellow strugglers Joventut 71-69 to break a four game losing streak. The win pushed Zaragoza up to 14th on the 17-team Spanish League ladder – a timely win ahead of a bye this coming weekend.
Sammic ISB, the Spanish LEB Silver League leaders jumped back into the winners circle after slipping to a rare loss last week.
Karena led all scorers with 18 points (7/12FG) as Sammic improved to 22-7 with a low scoring 60-45 victory at fifth placed Avila. Sammic will wrap up the regular season title if they beat 10th placed Alcazar on Saturday.
