El Dénia Básquet he missed a golden opportunity to achieve permanence directly by failing to achieve victory in the last league match. The game of results would have taken him to the ninth final position and thus to be able to play the permanence phase in a group of only three teams after the withdrawal of Petraher's Valencians from the competition. In this way, beforehand they would have been one more year in the national first division directly.
They started the game nervous and this led to an even first quarter. His inside game gave the first advantages, but unusual turnovers and the success of the visitors' outside shot prevented them from breaking the game, reaching 1 point below the break.
Afterwards they could not read the defensive changes that Moixent proposed, the dianenses' hit percentages were low and the turnovers continued to occur, which led to the visitors escaping on the scoreboard by a difference of seventeen points.
With great effort they reduced the distance to a maximum of seven points, entering into a dynamic that made us think that it was still possible to carry out the game.
But three consecutive triples from the visitors in a minute and a half returned them to the maximum difference again leaving the game sentenced.
The final tenth position in the classification means that they have to face in the permanence group with the sixth classified of the group, Altea, and the teams classified in seventh and eleventh position of Group A of the initial phase, which have been Escolapias and Burjassot.
Only the last of the group will descend at the end of this last phase. Those of Bernardo Sanz are convinced that they will continue united and strong to achieve the objective that they set at the beginning of the course.

Senior male 1st zone: NB Xàtiva 65-54 Dénia Básquet
Visit to a field that did not favor the usual Dianense game and that the local team knew how to take advantage of.
Despite the lack of fluidity in attack, they did not stop trying to print a high rhythm of play, but the lack of precision in the passes and the low percentage of success was gradually reducing the spirit of Dénia Básquet.
Even so, we maintained the equality in most of the sets, but it was in the third quarter when we failed to stop the scoring streak of the Setabenses who distanced themselves on the scoreboard, without the subsequent visitors' attempts to return to the game bearing fruit.
