The playoffs started on Wednesday with Game 1 of the semifinals. Avenida showed no signs of slowing down as they beat Zaragoza 78-56. Conquero got a key piece back, but they opted to play their five starters for the entire game instead of using their young players to mop up a few minutes. Fatigued, they saw the lead they took early on slip away late for a 79-72 loss to Girona. Haley Peters led the way for a frontcourt used to carrying the team, but it was Ify Ibekwe whose big game in the post helped lead her team to victory.
