The 'Japanese' Sebas Saiz leads the triumph of Spain in Romania

The Spanish basketball team took a firm step at the start of the qualification phase for the 2021 EuroBasket. The team led by Sergio Scariolo comfortably beat Romania 71-84 by getting a solid advantage from the first quarter cemented in the domain to the post of Sebas Saiz and the triples of Dani Diez.

After some initial exchanges in which Romania was ahead on the scoreboard, a partial 0-11 put Spain ahead with an income of a dozen points that he never lost. It was commissioned by a splendid Sebas Saiz, who achieved 17 points and 10 rebounds for a total of 22 valuations. The case of the Madrid pivot is the less atypical, since he left the Endesa League to join the Sun Rockets Shibuya in Japan this past summer.

The hosts were supported by the UCAM Murcia player, Emmanuel Cate with a double-double of 19 points and 13 rebounds, but his effort was useless before the Spanish inspiration from the three-point line. When Romania threatens to approach less than ten goals, Dani Díez – 21 points and 4 of 6 in triples – was responsible for undermining her morale.

Spain, which will possibly compete with few players from this litter at the Tokyo Olympics, He showed that he has a lot of future in his hands. Alocen, the pearl of the future of Real Madrid, distributed nine assists. The Aragonese was another of the highlights in the first step of Spain towards the EuroBasket. On Sunday, more against Poland.
