The next games with Surne Bilbao (11-15), COOSUR Betis (6-20) and BITCI Baskonia (14-12) on the 9th, 12th and 17th, respectively, could already consolidate them in the case of coming out with victories.

His team Regias remained undefeated with 10-0 in the Mexican Conference by defeating the Leñadoras 90-62 and 82-68 (3-7).

Amargo, from Sancti Spiritus, got 43 to raise her total to 194 and place herself in eighth.

The leader is the equally Cuban Yaima Boulet with 332. Another from the Island, Clenia Noblet is third with 261.

In Europe, much attention is attracted by the duel this Tuesday 5 between U Banca Transilvania Cluj Napoca of Karel Guzmán from Havana and MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg of Yorman Polas from Camagüey.

The Romanians will receive the Germans at their BT Arena at the start of the quarterfinals of the Champions League on that continent.
