Lorenzo Brown Leads Spain to Victory in Olympic Games Qualifier Preparation

Lorenzo Brown joyfully returned to the Spanish national team, leading them to an 84-74 victory over the Dominican Republic in a pivotal warm-up game prior to the Olympic Games Qualifiers. The game, held as Spain’s second preparatory fixture following a previous loss to Italy, showcased Brown’s exceptional performance on the court.

Brown, who scored 14 points on flawless 5-5 field shooting, also contributed significantly with six assists, demonstrating his pivotal role in Spain’s offensive strategy. His seamless integration back into the team was pivotal, providing both scoring prowess and playmaking finesse that proved instrumental in Spain’s success.

The match also highlighted the debut of 18-year-old guard Sergio De Larrea, who marked his senior squad debut with an impressive seven points. De Larrea added depth to Spain’s backcourt despite the absence of key players such as Juan Nunez and Alex Abrines.
