With the illusion of a new beginning, Soles de Mexicali will begin their 19th season when they face the Abejas de León this Friday night in what will be the opening game at the PSF Auditorium of the 2023 League Sisnova LNBP.
With the new coach Pedro Carrillo at the helm, expected returns such as Luke Martínez and a renewed squad of foreigners are part of the Cachanilla team.
The sports city building will once again open its doors to receive the fans who, led by La Batucada, will once again chant the name of the representative of all of Baja California.
Soles has the fifth championship in his sights and is to become the top winner in the League. Previous titles were achieved in the 2006, 2014-15, 2017-18, and 2019-2020 seasons.
For this, the Mexicali team is headed by captain Luke Martínez who returns with a sharp aim, and Eric García and Víctor Álvarez, who know what it is to be champions with the Mexicali shirt.
The youngsters Alex Reyna, Austreberto Tona, and Josué Lara come up with the idea of climbing positions in their roles within the team.
The squad of non-Mexican players includes the Chilean-Panamanian Eugenio Luzcando, as well as the Americans JJ Mann, Ryan Stephan, Andrew Smith, Jase Febres, and Ivan Aska, all with an interesting career in European basketball.
The rival on the opening day will be last season’s champions, Abejas de León, who will seek to open the season on the right foot.
The game is scheduled at 8:00 p.m. Baja California time (9:00 p.m. Central Time) and the tickets in preferred sections are already sold out, only seats are available in the general areas, which will be available at the box office from 10:00 in the morning.
