Spain seeks the Eurobasket against Hungary

Spain seeks the Eurobasket against Hungary

Those of Méndez can tie the classification at home against the direct rival


The Spanish women's basketball team receives this Sunday (5:00 p.m./Teledeporte) in Huelva the team from Hungary in the fourth game of the qualifying phase for Eurobasket 2023, a direct duel for the leadership of Group C and, therefore, the ticket straight to the appointment

Spain shows off that position of honor with six points to Hungary's five with a full of victories that the Magyars cannot boast of. In Szekszárd, in November, the four-time European champion began her journey by beating the Hungarians (62-66).

A victory for Spain could mean the passport for the Eurobasket (provided that Romania also lost), but if it were not a mathematician, it would be practically done. A defeat by more than four points for Hungary would complicate the first place in the group, and it would be necessary to seek to be one of the best seconds.

A priori, the toughest rival fulfilled its role, following Spain closely, but Miguel Méndez's men drew a triumphant line. His last victim was Iceland, this Thursday, in a historic beating (120-54) at the Carolina Marín Sports Palace.

The women's team signed the best score in its history (120), its triple record (16) and its assists record (36) against a bottom team that was greatly surpassed from the first quarter. The match, although official, became a process, but Méndez made the most of it.

Spain tried different situations in quality training, a set-up looking at Hungary to also confirm that the team has a wardrobe and a future. On the horizon is this Eurobasket, which will be held in June in Slovenia and Israel, with a more pending 'window' in February.

The Hungarians were also forceful (40-99) last Thursday against Romania. Norbert Szekely's have the nationalized Cyesha Goree as a star, in addition to the quality of Virag Kiss, Agnes Studer and Bernadett Horvarth, although with the loss of center Bernadett Hatar.

SPAIN: Cazorla, Romero, Peña, Rodriguez, Casas, Conde, Quevedo, Torrens, Etxarri, Araujo, Ginzo, Carrera and Ndour.
