The new Valencia Basket begins to compete in Alcoy against UCAM Murcia


The 2018-19 project of Valencia Basket begins its pre-season friendlies tomorrow, Thursday, August 30 at 8:00 pm in front of the UCAM Murcia in the Municipal Pavilion of Alcoy, in a game that may mean the premiere of the three signings made this summer, in addition to the debut of Jaume Ponsarnau as head coach. Admission to the meeting is free until the capacity of the Francisco Laporta Pavilion is complete.


After two years of absence, the tradition of opening the preseason in this Alicante town with a confrontation against the Murcian team, with a balance of one win for each team in the two previous precedents, is retaken. The taronja team will not be able to count in this game neither with the forward Alberto Abalde (discomfort in the lower back) nor with the point guard Antoine Diot (who has not started to work with his teammates due to an overload in the soleus of his left leg), in addition to the absence of the long-term injured Rafa Martínez.
