Valencia Basket finish the preseason with a loss vs. Covirán Granada in Llíria (66-75)


Valencia Basket closed the preseason with a balance of 6-1 after losing in its last preparation game, which the taronja squad played this afternoon in Llíria against Covirán Granada by 66-75 in a game in which, in addition to the three known sidelined players (Semi Ojeleye and the long-term injuries Xabi López-Arostegui and Martin Hermannsson), did not play as a precaution Brandon Davies (foot discomfort) and Kassius Robertson (hand discomfort). The Taronja team was in tow for most of the first half due to a set with four consecutive triples by the Nasrid team, although they managed to recover to lead by one at halftime. Álex Mumbrú's men overcame a moment of offensive ineffectiveness in the third quarter to keep the game close, but Covirán Granada once again found the accuracy of its shooters to take a nine-up lead with less than four minutes remaining. The taronja team tried but had no option to turn the score around and added their only defeat of the preparation. On Saturday, September 23 at 6:00 p.m. against Bàsquet Girona in La Fonteta, the official start of the season.
