With the countdown set to one month for the start of the Federal Basketball Tournament, executives of the “National Flower” continue from meeting to meeting to shape the team that will play a national tournament for the first time in history.
Times are getting shorter, the new year is coming and with it the great challenge of starting to prepare for what will undoubtedly be a historic moment for Asociación El Ceibo. The team from our city, after getting promoted by winning the Provincial Basketball League, will play the Federal Tournament for the first time.
With the confirmation that Eduardo Blengini will continue to command the squad, the next step for the leaders of the “Flower” is the preparation of the squad. With Matías Tomatis at the helm, the former player and current manager is one of those in charge of the negotiations and hiring.
The first contacts for possible renewals were with Agustín Lozano and Bruno Pérez, two of the most decisive players in the playoffs of the Provincial League. Both received the approval of Blengini and there they aim the guns to be able to close their relationship.
“The idea is to maintain the base we had, but the truth is I have a couple of doubts that I have to resolve in the next few days, first to tell the boys and second to build the team. But before the end of the year is to have the team armed “, “Mara” said to DSP.
The Federal Tournament will begin on January 28, so the start of the preseason would not extend beyond the first week of 2022.
