Since the final stages of the first round of the Men’s Major Basketball League (LSB) tournament, two teams have taken the lead. They are from the capital and Santiago de Cuba, who are now tied for first place with a record of 16 wins and two losses – they have seven wins over their closest pursuers – for whom, by all accounts, they are the teams with the most authority to discuss the title , owned by Búfalos de Ciego de Ávila.
Concluding this Wednesday’s most recent men’s sub-series, the Reinier Muñiz-led Havana team beat Villa Clara twice in a row for the second year in a row and thus extended their consecutive successes to nine, which began when they sent off an undefeated team. from Santiago. By the way, the people from Villa Clara, with a very good start – they reached 9-1 – lost the compass of victory, mainly due to the loss of their insiders Sergio Machado and Yoel Cubillas, hired in the El Savior Major League.
The indomitable team, despite only being able to win one of their two matches against Artemisa, enjoyed such good competition to the point that they held the top spot from the first match and never conceded. And since we are talking about people from Artemisa, then the owners of Raudel Balagert, after a disastrous start, gradually recovered and bordered on the scoring zone.

However, sharing the honors with Las Tunas, they remain in the top four.
Finally, Sancti Spiritus and newcomer Mayabeque also faced each other on Tuesday and Wednesday, and the current runners-up Yabero got a win that puts them in a slightly better position, but still not enough to be in the avant-garde quartet. , which eventually goes to the playoffs.
