Proud and brave, Quimsa fought to the end and was close to hitting, when he got within six points in the fourth quarter. It seemed that he was winning it on the run. However, the enormous superiority that European teams have compared to those from this part of the world, was evidenced in the work and individual hierarchy of San Pablo Burgos, who in the first half took a decisive advantage and then managed the score, winning 82-73 enshrine in the FIBA ​​Intercontinental Cup.





The 24 point difference that the Spanish achieved in the first half (56-32) were an unattainable distance for the santiagueños, who always had to row from behind and did not have enough air to reverse the situation.




“When they lowered their efficiency a bit in the second half, we were able to compete. But they beat us very well. We show that we have heart, “explained Sebastián González, Argentine coach.

The Brazilian Vitor Beníte (MVP), with 19 points, and the American Thaddus McFadden, with 16, were the offensive leaders of San Pablo Burgos. Brandon Robinson, at 25, was the best in Quimsa.

The contest originally faced the best of America and Europe. Quimsa is it in this continent, but San Pablo Burgos is the winner of the European Champions League that, in hierarchy, represents a third step (he beat AEK, from Greece in the final). It is that the Euroleague, which organizes the two main private tournaments, is in conflict with the FIBA, so the most powerful teams do not have access to this competition.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the final was reduced to a single confrontation that took place at the Obras stadium, one of the two venues where the Argentine National League is being played.

San Pablo Burgos, with great international development in recent seasons, is also having a good year in the ACB League in Spain, where it currently occupies fifth position.

The tournament defines the world club champion and has been played in different formats since 1965. The only Argentine champion team was Obras, in 1983, when it was called the William Jones Cup.
