Curtains close in Valencia with tasty Spain vs Bahamas meeting

The FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournaments in Valencia will come to an expected end as hosts Spain host impressive Bahamas for final showdown.

Both teams have asserted their dominance in the Valencia OQT, currently remaining undefeated. Only one of them will be able to claim a perfect score after tonight, and they will be celebrating Summer Olympics qualification.

La Roja have found their consistency in their frontcourt renaissance, led by the solid performances of FC Barcelona big man Willy Hernangomez and Memphis Grizzlies power forward Santi Aldama.

Their solidity will be put to test by Portland Trail-Blazers star, and former first draft pick, DeAndre Ayton, who has also been having a great time with Bahamas, averaging 20.3 points and 11 rebounds per contest.

The former Phoenix Suns player also leads the tournament for Efficiency (28.7) and will be extra motivated to give his country their first-ever Olympics berth.

Spain vs Bahamas Preview

Bahamas have been turning the ball over quite a lot in their high-pace offense (14 per game) and might want to take better care of the basketball. Spain averaged 21 points off turnovers in the tournament, and in a close game this might give them the edge.

When on paper this looks like a David vs Goliath challenge as the 2nd-ranked team in the world Spain take on 57th Bahamas, the talent at Coach Demarco’s disposal will make this a close affair.

On talent alone, Bahamas might even start as favorites. With established NBA stars such as Hield, Gordon, and Ayton and with the explosion of Valdez Edgecombe Jr, projected to be a top 5 prospect in the 2025 draft, Bahamas can count on some depth too.

In a close game, you would fancy Bahamas’ athleticism and individual skill to prevail. But Spain have so much experience, and the energy of the Pavelló Municipal to give them energy.

Will Spain earn another Olympic ticket, or is it time for Bahamas to make history?
