Platense returned to victory against Independiente in Oliva

Independiente de Oliva hosts Platense at Gigante de la Ruta 9 in the last regular season meeting for the two. La I, which had no chance of qualifying for the postseason, fell to Calamar, which was assured of finishing in the top nine of the campaign. Vicente López’s men ended a bad streak that saw them off the podium and ahead of the Cordoba team, something not seen since Cholo Vázquez left the institution.

El Calamar closed with success

The match started in Córdoba on the local side. Independiente was able to quickly differentiate itself from Calamar and was able to overcome the double-digit barrier. Both have a triple as a tool, but in the first half, I, is more. Led by Ezequiel Paz (21 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal), Oliva’s team was ahead at halftime by nine points behind Platense.

The second half was a different story, Vicente López’s team managed to turn the score around and went on to win with a good margin. They were more successful with their shots than Independiente and that put them ahead. An impeccable Facundo Vázquez (17 points, 10 assists, 6 rebounds, 2 steals) helped the visitors win the final game of their regular season. Platense won the game by 13 points and now he has to wait to meet his rival in the Reclassification.

What’s next for you two?

Independiente will pack their bags and have an early vacation as they have not qualified for the postseason. They still have a few months to prepare for the next national competition. While Platense, who have already qualified for the Playoffs, will have to wait until the last day of the tournament to find out who they will face in the elimination series.
