The Bidaideak Bilbao will not be able to culminate its great season fighting for the title in Final Four of the League. The set of Txurdinaga was overcome in the semifinal by Amiab Albacete, in an intense duel in which the La Mancha made a difference in the first quarter and Bidaideak had to row against the rest of the game.

Four minutes from the break, the advantage of La Mancha fell from 10 points after many minutes over that figure. 23-31 on the scoreboard.

10 minutes were missing and nothing was decided. In fact, the Bidaideak Bilbao approached 6 points (43-49). But the last quarter was characterized by the intensity of the defenses and the failures in attack. In 45-55 the scoreboard was stuck for several minutes, failures in the shots of the two teams, a lot of intensity in defense and a lot of play as to not be gripped. After an unsportsmanlike foul on Asier Garcia and a free kick scored by Martin Arredondo, the 45-56 was placed, which practically did not move until the end. A defeat that leads Bidaideak to have to fight for the consolation final against Extremadura.
