Lucas Mondelo still writing letters of gold in the history of Spanish basketball. Since coming to the national team the coach has not stopped reaping successes. The latest: Bronze medal in the Eurobasket of Hungary being the team that has won more games (9) with only a defeat two less than the champion and automatic qualification for the tournament.
For the Spanish coach, "the secret is in the group. We have a group that, despite the changes of players whether by choice or by necessity, maintains its essence and functions more as a team than a team"
Neither the absence of the considered best player in Europe, Sancho Lyttle, managed to stop a selection in which Alba Torrens (top scorer of the EuroBasket) took over facing the basket, but all the players also stepped forward.
Spain now face the 2017 pre-European dispute three "windows" (2015 november, 2016 february and november) which has been drawn in Group I where Sweden and Finland will face direct place for first classified and top 6 seconds of the 9 groups that fight for being in the Czech Republic in 2017.
