Intercontinental Cup - Iberostar Tenerife at the assault of Guaros de Lara
Sunday afternoon, the winner of last year's Champions League, Iberostar Tenerife, will play the Intercontinental Cup against the Venezuelan Formation of the Guaros de Lara. The Guaros is an outgoing champion, having won last year against Fraport Skyliners, and earned his share in March by winning his second consecutive Liga de las Americas against Weber Bahia Basket.
Tenerife has a lot of confreres in the roster: Tim Abromaitis, Ferran Bassas, Mamadou Niang, Nicolas Richotti, Rodrigo San Miguel, Fran Vazquez, Javier Beiran and Davin White. Beiran recovered from the straining to the ligaments that had stopped him in December: he will make his debut in 2017. The three novelties focus on the new coach, Nenad Markovic who was at Pinar Karsiyaka who brought with him the Polish Mateus Ponitka, and the Hungarian Rosco Allen (24, 2.08, college: Stanford Cardinal).
