Spain’s defensive lapses punished with goal-fest

The Spanish basketball team faced Italy for their summer debut, falling short in a tight 84-87 matchup. Although this was just the beginning of their express preparation leading up to the Olympic tournament, Coach Sergio Scariolo wasn’t pleased with certain defensive aspects.

Despite the loss, he emphasized the importance of not putting excessive pressure on a single player’s shoulders. Hernang√≥mez was the top scorer, putting in 23 points. For improvement, the team will need to address issues in their finishes, defensive strategies, and consistency in capitalizing on their opponents’ mistakes. The return of Lorenzo Brown could bring additional depth to the squad.
