the other ephemeris 25 years ago, Valvi avoided relegation by winning in Lugo

? St. George’s Day and Girona basketball have a special relationship. A title for girls and a virtual salvation for boys. In the latter case you need to take a look back in time a little further back. Today, just 25 years ago, Valvi Girona avoided relegation by winning, in an agonizing way, on the Breogan track in Lugo. The team then led by Quim Costa won 68-69, tying the series to two and forcing the fifth game, which would end up playing in Fontajau. On Galician soil, on April 23, 1995 the main protagonist was Ricardo Aldrey, in charge of hunting a crucial rebound and scoring two free throws, ignoring the pressure of more than 7,000 spectators who went against him. The end of the match, well pressed and disputed, had everything. Even an incident, just after the horn, when local Maxey attacked one of the two referees with a punch to the face. The eliminatory one was decided a few days later in Girona and the Valvi prevailed (77-67) certifying the permanence.
