The morning of the National League brought a rivalry of teams with different realities in the National League. Olympic received the Regatas Corrientes in Vicente Rosales, who had to return to the path of victory. Corrientes, for their part, are trying to establish themselves in playoff positions. The rivalry was largely dominated by the visitors, who ended up celebrating a 73-67 victory.

This result returns things to standing. Regatas maintained 12th position, with a record of 14 wins and 17 losses; but is a little further away from its closest pursuer, Peñarol de Mar del Plata (12-17). This is important, because if they tie the record, the Milrayites have the advantage since they won both of their matches. The loss affects the Olimpico a little. With three consecutive losses, the bandeños fell to third place, with a record of 21-9, surpassed by the Institute, which celebrated its last two performances and reached a record of 23-9.

The figures:

The best of the game came from the hands of Charles Thomas, author of 18 points and 10 rebounds, with a total PIR of 22. He was followed by 15 by Facundo Piñero, who also contributed 6 boards. The good news for Corrientes is the return of Franco Vieta, who was absent due to injury in the last few games. Fernando Calvi’s team still has the return of Xavier Carreras, a main pillar in the squad. Olimpico has squad news, as he confirmed the inclusion of Michael Hughes, to replace Perry, who has not recovered from his injury. The prisoner debuted with 5 points. The team figure was Alex Negrette, with 17 points (4/6 in doubles).
