Baxi Manresa celebrated their first qualification for the Copa del Rey in 18 years on WednesdayBut the celebrations don’t end there. Big week in Manresa! Pedro Martínez’s men needed one more win to secure their ‘ball’ in the seeding pot, something they achieved, with a comeback included, this Saturday in Andorra (79-82).

MoraBanc went up 16 points (56-40 after Crawford’s fifth triple) but, step by step, Manresa was closing the gap. first hand of Bako who, with a basket with nine minutes remaining, lowered his team from the psychological barrier of ten points (68-59). And after the Francisco, who with a partial of 0-9 that carried his signature (3+1 included), He turned the score around with 1:58 left (75-76).

Crawford insisted on spoiling the party for the Manresa team (79-78) and MoraBanc had the ball to win the game, but an impressive stopper from Moneke to Olumuyiwa he turned the balance on the Manresan side. Unsportsmanlike to Thomasson, who did not miss any of his free throws, and final possession for Pedro Martínez’s team, possibly the funniest team in the entire ACB.

The game was a real madness. Manresa seemed to get the game back on track with a very active Moneke in the first quarter (7 points for 14-21) until the festival of triples in Andorra began. With seven goals in a row (8-10 in that quarter), MoraBanc signed a partial of 21-2 with which he went from 26-31 to 47-33. Hannah achieved five triples in that assault and Crawford, also with the fifth of the afternoon, put the maximum (56-40). But this Manresa is a lot of Manresa.
