    Búfalos a punto de alcanzar boleto a final del baloncesto

    Ciego de Ávila`s Búfales got one-step closer to the ultimate goal of winning their tenth crown in the history of the Superior Basketball League, after defeating Santiago de Cuba 110-95 and placing the miniseries 2-1 in their favor, by what a new success this Sunday would give them the right to discuss the scepter.

    Yordanis Jaca guided the multi-champions, not only with the contribution of 19 points, but also added ten rebounds and caused many fouls from the opposing defense with his impetuous tackles. Yasser Rodríguez also had an excellent afternoon with his 22 units, 12 of them for four baskets beyond the perimeter.

    This was a different team from the one that lost last Wednesday in the Alejandro Urgellés sport room. Now, for example, on three-point shooting he had a good 48 percent effectiveness.

    But the indomitable once again showed that they are good opponents for the Ciego de Ávila team, to the point that, after falling in the first set (28-38), they were superior in the second and third (20-18 and 26-21). The nightmare came in the last quarter when they lost by 12 cards (21-33).

    If it is about stars, he highlighted the performance of Yoan Luis Haiti, who remained on the court for 18 minutes, less than half the game, but added 10 points and five rebounds. The giant, moreover, is a source of inspiration for his team.

    However, William Granda, one of the fundamental players of the squad, could only play three minutes, suffering from an injury to his right leg.

    In the other semifinal playoff, Sancti Spíritus, with Mario Troyano as leader (contributed 22 units), managed to beat Capitalinos for the second time (68-67).

    It was well announced to Invasor by technical director Jorge Quintero before the start of the season, when he already considered the Sancti Spiritus as possible rivals in the discussion of the title.

    In the meantime, and with a wide slate of 91-44, Las Mambisas from Santiago prevailed for the third time against Las Sirenas from Ciego de Ávila and in this way; they secured their pass to the grand finale. Those directed by Moisés Bravo, however, improved the fifth step of the previous League.
