San Emeterio, Vives & Sastre, historical taronja treble in the Spanish NT


The first preparation game of the Spanish Team for the Eurobasket 2017, in which the national team prevailed last night to Tunisia by 71-45 in Tenerife, was also the first time in history in which three players of Valencia Basket participated in the same game wearing Spain in their jersey.


Although none of the taronja representatives was part of the starting five, Fernando San Emeterio soon entered the court, being part of the first rotation made by coach Sergio Scariolo. Shortly after Fernando made his appearance in his second international game the shooting guard Joan Sastre. When at 7 minutes and 48 seconds for the half-time, Guillem Vives entered the game, certifying the first case of such a large taronja presence in a match of the Spanish National Team.
