𝙎𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙍𝙚𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙩: @USMNT x @MLS

Just one player of the starting XI against Wales came from a team in the #MLS. But the bench was stacked with MLS talent that could hurt England tonight.

Here are a few to watch out for. 🧵

#ThreeLions | #USMNT

💫 Dak’s 88% completion rate in Week 11 was the highest recorded in a single game (min 15 attempts) in the whole of 2022 so far.

⭐️ The #Cowboys are getting hot at the right time, but Coach of the Year contender Brian Daboll has the #Giants playing elite football.

Four weeks into the new Leb Oro season and just two teams remain undefeated at the top of the table.

MoraBanc Andorra extended their unbeaten run with a win over Caceres, while Palencia gained a decisive away win over Alicante.

Elsewhere, there was a positive result for San Pablo Burgos, as Valladolid put up almost 100 points against Lleida, leapfrogging them in the table. Here’s a breakdown of the headlines.

MoraBanc Andorra 86-74 Caceres

MoraBanc Andorra were impressive in their win over Caceres, moving to four games without defeat in the Leb Oro.

Former Betis Guard Tobias Borg started for Andorra, putting up 14 points and going 100% from the free-throw line.

Johnny Dee hit 3/5 from outside the arc, including this beauty in Q3…

As if by fate, the two undefeated teams play each other this weekend, in what is sure to be a classic matchup.

Alicante 54-82 Palencia

Palencia took the lead in this game and never looked back.

Despite being just 2 points up at the end of Q1, and only 8 points up at the half, Palencia were always in control of this game.

Alicante were restricted to limited shooting, with Palencia hoovering up rebounds: they were out-rebounded by the visitors in defensive situations by a tally of 29-17, which began to weight heavy.

Palencia put their foot on the gas in Q3 and Q4 especially, with the eventual scoreline being the widest margin in the entire game.

Alec Wintering put up 8 assists, the highest tally of the weekend.

Former NBA G League player Tanner McGrew put up 18 points, with 100% shooting inside the arc.

Castelló 76-72 Estela 

This was the closest game of the weekend, with the visitors eventually taking the points.

The away team were quickest from the tip off, opening up a 2-16 scoreline with an unanswered 14-point run.

That lead stretched to its widest during the 2nd-quarter, as Estela opened up a 15-point gap.

Mid-way through Q3, the home side found some rhythm in attack, cutting the deficit and taking the lead for the first time in the game. With the game tied at 59-59 at the start of the final quarter, it could have gone either way. But Castelló pushed forward, beating Estela at the boards and maintaining a consistent lead.

There was also a nice comeback for Edu Duran…

Stutz was central to the comeback, picking up 19 points in total and going 9/12 from 2-pt range. His teammate, Xavier Rey, was also integral – picking up 9/9 on defensive rebounds.
