Partido Posted on November 3, 2018 at 02:59:35 PM by Chris A
It was a difficult match to watch. Spinner, for all his efforts, didn’t have enough power to get the ball past Erik, who was just pounding the back court. Spinner either makes the catch and feeds Erik again, or he’d let the ball go leaving Beitia having to dig out a rebote from the defensive position. At one point I felt bad for Beitia-because he was always on the defensive. You see him try to take some initiative and be aggressive but he was never really in position to do so. All that being said Spinner did make some fine catches and did as best he could given the situation he was in.
I wonder how this partido would have gone if they had switched the backcourts. Would Erik have been able to carry Spinner, or would Ladutxe and Beitia be able to get to him the same way Erik did. Would have loved to see THAT match!
Thanks Benny for giving us a fun tournament to watch!! Replies:
