The Club Atlético Colón board of directors, with the support of the Basketball Subcommittee, was able to cancel the debt suspended from last season in AdC, so that the sabaleros are already in conditions (with the famous “Libre Deuda” on hand) start the new orange promotional calendar in the Argentine league , which is scheduled for mid-October. Now, with a high budget for obvious reasons for the current season, the Red and Black Basketball Support Group has embarked on the difficult task of getting the support of the government and private sponsors for Colón to continue.
Colon refused to be affiliated with the Argentine Basketball League
At the same time and with the confirmation of the coaching staff headed by Sebastian Porta, Libertad de Sunchales has practically determined everything for the 2022/2023 Argentine Basketball League season. The new face will be 25-year-old Nicolas Calalo, who has just battled for the Federal League with Belgrano de Tucumán.
The La Panda native (Santiago del Estero) averaged 14.6 points with a 15.8 rating last season. Calalo trained at Quimsa de Santiago del Estero and spent time at Villa ngela, Hispano Americano, Independiente BBC and Atenas de Carmen de Patagones. Nicholas will share the base of the team with Mathieu Perez, a player at the club and will continue to wear the Tigres shirt. The same will happen with Julian Eydallin who has had a good season and will continue to grow.
Those who will stand their big chance are Luis Obia, Kevin Mathieu and Augusto Barbieri. The latter returns from loan at BH de Gualeguay, while the young Dominicans will have minutes in the squad that will include Sebastian Porta (DT), Fernando Bortolotti (AT), Nicolas Raimondo (PF) and Lucas Pussetto (Motion World).
In addition, as a result of the evaluation of the technical body and the Professional Basketball Subcommittee, it was possible to agree on the continuity of Juan Pablo Wall, Enzo Robics and Stefano Simondi. The three players fulfilled last season’s expectations and wear yellow and black again. On the other hand, those who did not continue were Manuel Alonso, with whom the club decided not to renew their contractual relationship, and Nicolas Quiroga, who was sold to the Tennis de Misiones Opera Club to play in the upcoming National League and Development League.
It remains only to complete the team with another main card. The intent is to outline everything to start prep at the end of this month. Official activity is scheduled to begin in mid-October.
