For the Importadora Alvarado coach Luciano Martinez , his focus are in the post season competition and how his team will can get to playoff.
We have two important matches against Barcelona Sporting Club in away and at home with Leones de Riobamba said Martinez. The team have lost Nixon Mina (205-F/C-90) for the next two matches, for this reason having give more deffensive responsabilities under the hot zone to Jhon Romero (199-F-85) who has had biggest performance in his lastes two matches, additional the support of the Young Joe Alvarado.

The pointguard rotation has been another key in this team. Pablo Reacaute and Fredy Sanmiguel have had the responsabilitie to shared the minutes in the court. Recaute has given important deffesnive minutes, and Sanmiguel is the owner of the position but Martinez has preferred gave minutes at the beggin of the match to Recaute, and at the ended of the quarters Sanmiguel took the offensive drivers.

We have certain trouble with the health of Christian Orozco, who will lost the next matches.

Martinez has considered that this tournament has been the more competitive in the lastest years, and with the exception of Triple E, any team has alternative to win the tournament.

Importadora the last year ended in the playoff when they lost with Club Iccan de Macas.
Tavarez Sledge and Jerel Blocker (193-G/F-88, college: Lee) have given the contribution of the scoreboard and the long shot to open the deffensive zone.
Importadora will visit tomorrow Barcelona Sporting Club ( direct rival) for teh 2nd place and will close the regular round at home against Leones de Riobamba next Wednesday.
