Vargas
Leones de Riobamba took the last ticket to the semifinal of the Ecuador LNB with a victory over Importadora Alvarado 61x70 in match that was played in Ambato this Saturday night.
Until the 3rd quarter the actions was close, but the offensive reaction of the Carlos Gorosito 's team reach the pace to over the Importadora's defensive strategies and took the advantage of the scoreboard without to lose it by the rest of the match.
The keys for the Riobamba coach was the intensity with that their players jumped to the court in the last minutes of the match.
Javinger Vargas (202-C-90) went out of the match with an injury in his finger, but they think that he Will be ready for to play the next Tuesday in Macas, when Leones will be going to play the 1st match of the Semifinals against ICCAN.
Alexander Morillo (180-PG-92) has had big matches in the last weeks, but yesterday has been the best performance in the defensive field. And the support on the boards of Corbyn Jackson (198-F) and Reggie Charles (201-F-81) was mandatory for win in front to one of the best defensive teams in the league. The constant input of Andres Cochambay (191-F-87) and his effective input in the rush time was another key for the victory.
Importadora had trouble in all the season with the pointguard player rotation. Luciano Martinez coach had great contribution for offensive from Tavarez Sledge and Jarret Blocker. Add the Jhon Romero (199-F-85) great behaviour in the pivot tasks ( defensive and offensive ). But the lost ball in the critical moments were the weakness that showed the Ambatos team in the two lastest games and Riobamba took advantage of it.
I would have liked to play against Pepe in the finals, but the basketball is like that said Gorosito.We got to focus. They have many changes and we have to defend them well said Pidal.
The challenge for Riobamba in this semifinals will be stop of a great offensive team like ICCAN; with players who have had great experience in finals like Juan Herrera (197-F-81), Jesus Centeno (190-G-85) and Cesar Silva (190-G/F-81), add Juan Alvarez with his local experience give more depth to the Juan Jose Pidal l's team. ICCAN's team need to show their offensive power and with the great experience for their players they are favorite over the Leones.
In the regular season they divided. ICCAN won the 1st match of the tournament casually over Leones 73x52, where Alexander Morillo got injured. And in the 2nd match Leones won 81x74. In this series each team won his game on the way.ICCAN didn't have Juan Herrera in the 1st match.
This serie will begin next tuesday in Macas. It playing Tuesday and Wednesday in ICCAN's home, and will travel to Riobamba Friday, and if necessary Saturday and next Tuesday will come and next tuesday will go to macas to play at 5th game if necessary.
