ADBA, who was still undefeated at home in the whole season, couldn´t break the game in the first quarter (20-19) but after a good second quarter, they arrived with 9 point difference to half time (45-36). A good start of quarter gave them even more difference and only a 0-10 rush by Ferrol in the last quarter helped the visitor team to lose the game just by 11 points which weren´t enough to keep the basket average (which was 2 points).
After this win, ADBA Avilés keeps the fourth position with a 15-5 balance, tied with Tenerife Aguere and with one win and aveage difference with the fifth position team, Burgos.
