Unicaja Malaga doesn’t want to stop. After winning the Basketball Champions League in Belgrade and ending on top of the ACB standings, Ibon Navarro’s team swept BAXI Manresa 2-0 in the ACB Quarter-Finals.

In front of an energic crowd in Nou Congost, the home side couldn’t control the purple-and-green offensive wave, finishing the season at home by suffering a 23-point defeat (86-63).

David Kravish finished with 12 points, followed by Tyler Kalinoski and Melvin Ejim, who both scored 10 points. Tyson Carter went close to a double-double in his team’s victory with 9 points, 4 rebounds, and 9 assists.

Travante Williams finished the season with BAXI Manresa by performing a 12-point losing effort which included a full-court buzzer-beater. Brancou Badio had a tough three-point night (1/9) but finished with 10 points.

Ibon Navarro’s team is the second side to qualify for the ACB Semi-Finals after Real Madrid. They will face the winner of the series between Valencia and UCAM Murcia, which is now leading 1-0.
