The ACB is different, with a UCAM unleashed after knocking down the impregnable Martín Carpena of Málaga on three occasions.

This is how they arrive

Madrid arrives undefeated in the Endesa League Playoffs. In the middle, of course, they lost in the Euroleague grand final against Panathinaikos and the dream of the twelfth team escaped. But in the national competition they swept Dreamland Gran Canaria (2-0) and the eternal rival, Barcelona, ​​3-0. They are favorites, especially with the home court factor in their favor. If Unicaja had passed, they would start outside. It will not happen with the victory of UCAM.

The university students are, for their part, celebrating. They made good that fact that said that they never came back from 2-0 or 0-2 in the ACB Playoffs and they signed a tremendous 77-0 in the balance. UCAM, too, is one of the great revelations since Caja San Fernando from 1996 or the historic TDK Manresa from 1998.


In the balance between the finalists there is positive news for UCAM. The Murcians defeated Madrid in the second leg of Murcia in the regular league (73-61). Although the immediate precedent was a white triumph over Sito Alonso’s team in the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey (84-79).
