A Bintoufa with a great atmosphere, two of the most powerful teams in the competition and a title at stake. The conditions were the best for the match which was broadcast on Twitch with a resounding success. In the end, the title went to Burgos, with a more powerful inside game than his opponent and the point guard duo (Alonso and Cuevas) moving at a brutal pace. Their rivals, without relying on their star Edwin Jackson, relied on the young talents of Diego Alderete, Pol Molins and Nacho Arroyo, all under 23 years old.

Javi Zamora knew it was his last chance and put Hestia Menorca in the zone. Diego Alderete and Nacho Arroyo had a few minutes of inspiration, allowing the crowd to once again enjoy the historic match. But another figure stood out, Argentine Alejandro Bortolusi, who scored 7 points almost in a row to calm the spirits of the Balearic Islands (48–68).
There were ten minutes left and UBU Tizona’s philosophy was not to slow down the match. Diego Ocampo’s men kept running. Of course, with more inaccuracies due to fatigue, which allowed Hestia Menorca to fight for five minutes to the game (62-73).

The locals played it all with zones in defense and triples in attack, although they lost Alderete and Tomic on individual terms. The final minutes remained, but the title reached Burgos (76–90) with Joe Cremo as Cup MVP.
