Herbalife Gran Canaria leaves behind a flawless preseason to face Supercopa Endesa

The islanders had a perfect preseason with six wins in six games.

Herbalife Gran Canaria ended its preseason last Saturday with yet another dominance performance. The yellow team beat German side Ratiopharm Ulm 96:77 after a 16 points comeback. The game was held in old gym Centro Insular de Deportes and it was a tribute for legendary Greg Stewart -former Gran Canaria star who suffered a heart attack a few weeks ago.


Before that win, Herbalife Gran Canaria beat Iberostar Tenerife by 15; Movistar Estudiantes by 26; Unicaja by 24; Montakit Fuenlabrada by 12 and Dominion Bilbao Basket by 24 points scoring 105. Didn’t take long for new coach Luis Casimiro to find the right key as the team has shown a compact, strong sense of teamwork in all the games. Good attitude in defense, intensity and a smooth offense has been the main characteristics of the team.

But now next challenge will be a very different one. Herbalife Gran Canaria will play Supercopa Endesa versus Baskonia that will host the weekend tournament in Vitoria. It will be the start of the official season.
