A new season started on Thursday in Salamanca as the two powerhouse teams from last season squared off again. Avenida started well, but Girona fought back and took a lead well into the second half before the hosts came back to win 61-55. This should set the stage for another interesting battle between these teams for supremacy in Spain as each team added reinforcements to the existing core, including the return of Maria Conde to Europe for the visitors.
