Uni finished in 2020 with a hard-fought victory on the court of Lointek Gernika Bizkaia (60-69) and it remains to be seen how it will start in 2021 because the match that yesterday afternoon had to be played in Fontajau against Spar Gran Canaria had a meeting adjourned. The possibility that a local player was infected by coronavirus activated all alarms and the Spanish Basketball Federation (FEB) activated all emergency protocols. Just a few hours past two-thirty in the afternoon, the appointed time, the match was suspended and it is now time to see what his new date will be.
L’Spar Girona he was training yesterday morning. A shooting session while preparing the first game of the year, normally and without anything strange. The news would come just after, when a player who participated in training with the rest of the squad learned that direct contact tested positive for coronavirus. The alarms went off and the FEB moved tab. With the danger of contagion, which would multiply in a hypothetical duel in the afternoon, the Uni-Spar Gran Canaria was postponed. It will be today when all the players and also the members of the coaching staff will undergo the relevant tests (antigen tests and a PCR the player in question) to determine if there are any positives. In two days, this operation would be repeated. Meanwhile, the visiting team had to resign themselves to the circumstances and spent the night in Girona, to return home today.
If the test results do not confirm any positive case for covid-19 in the squad, training would resume as normal and the team would continue with its routine to face a month of January full of commitments. Waiting to place the clash with Gran Canaria again, Uni will play this coming Saturday on the court of Casademont Zaragoza (20 hours). Only two days later, he would have to recover the pending match with Al-Qázeres, which was supposed to be played last November but which also had to be postponed. On the 15th, a Friday, I return to receive Ciudad de La Laguna in Fontajau (7.30pm) before facing a new Euroleague bubble. A demanding test that will arrive just before visiting the Valencia track, although this duel, scheduled for the 23rd, will surely have to be relocated.
