Unless Universitario manages to reverse the decision of the Superior Council of the Salteña Basketball League, this year the Salteño First Division Championship will have the participation of only five teams, with a noticeable deterioration because the activity will be lame, with two games by date and the absence of an entertainer.
There is a great responsibility of Universitario, which had time to solve its lack of players in the training divisions to be able to comply with the regulations, beyond a pandemic that limited practice almost to nullity. He had a year to manage another outcome.
There is also the responsibility of other clubs, which in their eagerness to become stronger by recruiting youth, reduced the squads of others and when they could have a waist, they did not. The decision is up to each one and it is neither good nor bad, but the regulation was enforced.
On the other hand, the incomprehensible decision of some clubs and neutrals not to allow the press to enter the meetings, and the “seen” of the president to calls and messages, makes us have to inform ourselves a posteriori, sometimes receiving miserable data that is they send everyone equally, when the only medium that is interested in the activity is CHANGE. Then they try to “give basketball a go”, when despite our efforts we really found little to highlight.
Hence, investigating in parallel we receive two versions; the first is that it was voted unanimously not to consider the request from Universitario, and the other is that Nacional was the only one that supported the reds and from tricolor ranks they sent our newsroom their disagreement with what was published in these pages, which was not other than information poured by leaders of the ‘U’.
From Universitario there is discomfort because “everyone is against” them, since they began to win championships. The reality is that they have made a mistake in the regulatory areas and both in the 2016 finals and in this particular situation, the decisions are “in law”.
Unfortunately, in basketball, everyone ends up paying for mistakes, because there are only six clubs that make up the Salteña League. For this reason, an extremely small medium should add up so that everyone wins, seeking solutions with a general scope. However, historically, perhaps since the 90’s, the clubs have not had a minimum inclination towards the other. Perhaps, Universitario playing in Paysandú and here five, will remain as a mere anecdote of a bad moment, but everything seems to be going the wrong way.
We would love to say thanks to the writer of this post for this remarkable material
