Gimnasia de Comodoro became the only undefeated in the Southern Conference of the National League after beating Boca on the fourth day by 98-66. With this triumph, those led by Martín Villagrán maintain a record of 4 wins and 0 losses.
Those from Patagonia were the dominant clearings of the match from the initial jump and never let Xeneize pass to the front of the scoreboard. Little by little they built an unattainable advantage for those led by Gonzálo García, who had no chance to react.
Gymnastics had a strong offensive trident, which was led by Franco Giorgetti’s 22 points and closely followed by Juan Manuel Rivero with 21. In Boca the 16 that the foreigner Tavario Miller added was not enough.
To be leaders, those of Comodoro Rivadavia took advantage of the fall of Obras to Argentino by 84 to 83. With that defeat, Tachero lost undefeated and fell to second place with 3 wins and 1 fall.
The process of the match was completely even and the difference ranged between five and six points during the first three quarters. But the Turk stepped better in the last ten minutes and broke the match. The curious thing came at the close, the Rocker lost by three units and had eight seconds to seek the tie, but in a confusion Fernando Zurbriggen entered and converted a double, which was not enough to stretch the match.
Despite the error in the end, the Tachero point guard was his team’s top scorer with 25 points, which were insufficient against the 28 points that Jonathan Slider converted.
