Gran Canaria Takes Honours at the Sands Beach Resort Basketball Tournament

It was a decisive victory for Gran Canaria 2014 at the weekend as they beat CB Granada 77 to 61 in the final of the Sands Beach Resort International Basketball Tournament at the Pabellon de Teguise stadium.

750 people turned out to watch the final as coach Pedro Martínez watched his side, including NBA player Rasual Butler, put in a convincing, crowd-pleasing performance. Gran Canaria 2014 started the tournament in good form on Friday night, beating Caja Laboral 67 – 65. Saturday saw CB Granada dominate Caja Laboral with a 78 – 67 scoreline, setting up Sunday’s final to be a mouth-watering prospect.
