In the second quarter, the success of the hand decreased but the visitor did not grow, so the situation on the scoreboard did not vary excessively since Casademont Zaragoza made up for this loss with a good defense against a Valencia that put the ‘rojillos’ attacks in the most trouble also as shown by the fact that they went to rest with ten losses, six in the second act. The equality was also maximum after the refresh time with continuous basket exchanges with Christian Mekowulu for the locals and Bojan Dubljevic for the visitors, competing in hits.
