Third title in a row (54-94)

Carles Cascante

Barça Regal have won the Catalan League for the third consecutive year, beating the same opponent each time. Joventut only really troubled them in the first period.

Third title in a row (54-94)


FIATC Joventut (18+14+15+7):
Jeter (14), Jelinek (10), Obasohan (3), Llovet, Williams (9) –starting five-, Trias, Todorovic (8), Van Lacke (4), Barrera (4), Oliver (2) and Suárez.

FC Barcelona Regal (18+31+26+19): Huertas (6), Eidson (5), Rabaseda (5), Wallace (6), Ndong (15) - starting five -, Lorbek (11), Ingles (13), Vázquez (9), Navarro (11), Sada (5) and Perovic (8).

Referees: Juan Carlos Mitjana, Oscar Perea and Luis Guirao.
Nobody had expected Barça Regal to be quite so superior to Joventut, especially when the first period ended 18-18, but especially in the second half, FCB were by far the better side. With Boniface Ndong excelleing, they won by a massive 40 points.

Racking up twos

2011-09-26_FIATC_MUTUA_JOVENTUT_-_FCB_REGAL_006.jpgBarça raced into an early 7-2 lead, with Huertas and Eidson distributing the ball well. A Lorbeck 2+1 made it 18-10, with FCB yet to score from anywhere other than the paint. Joventut then came into their own with an 8-point streak to tie the period.

Defence and rebounds

Barça Regal needed to be more attentive in the second period, and Pascual managed to get the very best out of his troops. Joventut struggled to contain FCB in defence, and also surrendered a number of defensive rebounds to their local rivals.

Fran Vázquez added another 2+1 to make it 30-18 as Barça got the period off to a stunning start. ‘La Penya’ tried to conjure some kind of response, with a couple of threes, but an inspired Ndong (14 points at
half-time) left the side from Badalona floundering (49-32).

Wallace and 'Raba' make break

Barça Regal really started overpowering their opponents after the restart.
Navarro was now in on the act he and both Wallace and Xavi Rabaseda started converting 3-pointers to make it +22 and as good as sentence the match at 61-39.

With Victor Sada acting as central playmaker, the period ticked by with little sign of trouble for FCB, whose rapid counter attacks were proving too much for a devastated rival, and the third period ended with a comfortable cushion (75-45).

Cruising home

The last period was about Joventut trying to make the score a little bit more respectable, and Barça ensuring that they failed to do so. In fact, foolishly lost balls against a vastly superior opponent meant that Barça ended the match having doubled their lead in what had already been a humiliating scoreline for the green and blacks, who have once again lost to Barcelona in a Catalan league Final (94-54).
