Espinoza: ''The team that defends better will be champion''

CORDOBA (DIRECTV Liga Sudamericana) - The Instituto forward, Pablo Espinoza, analyzed the great triumph over Franca of Brazil by 79-68, result that forced the series to a third game and definite game.

"It was an extremely important triumph. We knew it was a key game because we did not have another life, but luckily, we have one more. Franca is a team with a lot of three-point shots and we try to focus on that. We have to be perfect on defense for today. We played very well the last three minutes of the game and that was the deciding factor. The team that defends better will be champion," said Espinoza who scored 6 points and captured 6 rebounds in the victory.

On the defining match tonight, the forward assured: "Today we have to try to do the same as yesterday. The support of the people helped us a lot and hopefully it will be a the same again. We know that if we do things right, we can win the title."

Tonight, a new DIRECTB Liga Sudamericana Champion will be crowned, and the winner will celebrate with the Horacio Muratore Cup.
