The UCAM changes the puzzle with the visit of the Penya


Luther was injured, Giffey’s days are numbered and Anderson was able to play again a month later, today against the Catalan team

In a few days, UCAM has learned that it will be out of Ryan Luther between two and two and a half months and that Niels Giffey plans to take up a proposal from Bayern Munich next week. Also that James Anderson’s recovery is progressing even better than expected, and he has already started training with his team-mates, albeit with many limitations in real game situations and with contacts.

Circumstances that make last week’s puzzle dance and that may not be the best for a new Endesa League commitment tonight at 8:45 pm against Joventut at the Palacio de los Deportes, but they are the ones that make them are for those of Sito Alonso, who believes that “the most important thing is that the players we have play well”.

His club is already on the market looking to sign a power forward to replace Ryan Luther as Nemanja Radovic is left very much alone in the position, despite the possibility of occasional help in this position from Niels Giffey and James Anderson, who last week integrated into the group training for the work of the play systems without defense, and that he participated with his teammates for the first time on Wednesday. His coach does not dispel any doubts as to whether he will jump on the track tonight, although it seems clear that the UCAM will sign him up and he will be dressed in shorts. “We’re going to see if it can help us, depending on how the game goes.”

Opposite is the Joventut that brought Sito Alonso into the Endesa League and in which he made his debut as head coach after seasons as assistant to Aíto García Reneses, against whom he played last Sunday in Girona. A match to be quickly forgotten before facing the black and white, who started the season somewhat hesitantly, also with a breakdown of three wins and three losses in the first six days and in which, although nine players from last season , Sito appreciates significant differences “in number 4, where Ellenson gives them a different situation”.

On the other hand, in the agreement that UCAM and Niels Giffey reached a few weeks ago, the possibility of a cut for the German on November 12 was considered. And all indications are that he will practice it. And it’s that Giffey got the interest of Bayern Munich, a German Euroleague team. For now, Giffey will still be one of Sito Alonso’s men against Joventut, but all indications are that it will be his last game with UCAM, as there is a break next week due to some ‘FIBA windows’ in which the attacker returns to play the German team, with which he won bronze last Eurobasket.

Giffey’s departure will bring economic compensation to the club, but it will mean the loss of one of the players who interpreted basketball best among college students. Sito is left with twelve players, including Urban Klavzar.
