Obras closes third stage with win over Biguá

MIAMI (United States) - Obras Sanitarias concluded their run in the 2021-22 Basketball Champions League Americas Wednesday night with a victory, defeating Biguá 96-77 at the “Templo del Rock” in Buenos Aires (Argentina).

The home team led most of the way but was able to withstand a furious run from the Uruguayans in the third quarter. Biguá had a 10-0 run to take the lead before the Argentinians regrouped to close the period on top. The rest, as they say, was history as Gregorio Martínez’s squad ran away with the game with a 29-12 final stanza.

Joaquín Rodríguez led the way with 21 points, five rebounds and five assists, shooting 4/6 from beyond the arc, but the star of the game was Lautaro Berra.

The young big man went off for 18 points on 9/10 from the field and helped Obras to a 48-26 edge in points in the paint.

 

The Argentinians put on a show offensively, assisting on 29 of 37 made baskets and shooting 56.1 percent from the field.

Point guard Pedro Barral had nine assists, including this absolute beauty:

 

Biguá just ran out of gas in the second half, but not before giving the Argentinians a scare behind the hot shooting of Alex López Suberbie.

The sharpshooting guard went off in the third quarter and finished with 19 points on 5/8 from long distance.

 

In the end, their 20 turnovers proved to be a bridge too far.

Victor Rudd scored a game-high 21 points but shot only 6/18 from the field to go along with his five boards and five dimes.

 

Luis Santos had 15 points and seven rebounds while Martín Rojas poured in another 14 for Biguá, but Obras’ squad was deeper (31-6 edge on bench points) and quicker on the open court (24-11 advantage on fast breaks).

Despite the loss, Biguá (4-2) finished first in Group C and advanced to the Final Eight alongside Brazil’s Minas (3-3). At 2-4, Obras had already been eliminated.
