The Cuban played today before his return to Havana to qualify for the Americup 2022
Cuban Jasiel Rivero had a good contribution to the victory today of the Hereda San Pablo Burgos club by 78-63 against Monbus Obradoiro in the Endesa Basketball League in Spain. The League will have a break for giving up its internationals for world qualifiers.
Rivero, although below other performances, scored eight points and got three defensive rebounds in the visit of the Burgos this Saturday to the Multiusos Fontes do Sar in the city of Santiago de Compostela, where his team scored an eighth victory.
The American Alex Renfroe with 31 goals led the offensive of those led by Joan Peñarroya in a match where they won the four sets by 20-15, 22-20, 18-13 and 18-15, according to official statistics.
With a balance of 8-3, those from Burgos now rose to third place with the same balance as TD Systems Baskonia but have a better point difference in favor with 90.
This Sunday the 22nd, matchday 12 is completed with six games and the leaders of the table, Real Madrid (10-0), Iberostar Tenerife (9-1) and Barcelona (8-2) will be involved in them.
The Spanish league is held until December 6 for the second window of the continental qualifiers heading for the Fiba World Cup 2023 in the Philippines, Malaysia and Japan.
Rivero returns this Sunday to play with the Cuban national team in Group C commitments of the Americup 2022 to be held in the Dominican Republic next weekend.
The Cubans under the command of José Ramírez were scheduled to play on the 29th against Canada and on the 30th against the hosts at the Hard Rock hotel in Punta Cana but they will only play the second.
It has been known through the International Federation that Canadians will not travel to the famous spa due to sanitary restrictions in their country due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
For this occasion the world clubs must yield the players summoned by the national squads. For example, Burgos will “release” seven of its main exponents: the Spanish Xavi Rabaseda and Miquel Salvó, the Georgian Thad McFadden, the Serbian Dejan Kravic, the British Kareem Queely, the Congolese Jordan Sahko, and Rivero.
