Iberostar Tenerife
Home hopes
Already sitting reasonably comfortably in the league table, basketball side Iberostar Tenerife (formerly CB Canarias) are hoping to capitalise on a kind fixture list, playing at home in La Laguna three times over the Christmas holidays, to put daylight between them and the bottom clubs.

05.01.2014 -  The home sequence began against Valladolid last week and continues with games against Murcia (December 30) and Cajasol (January 3).  Coach Alejandro Martínez wants the Santiago Martín stadium to play the same role it played last season when his players proved virtually unbeatable there in the second half of the season, losing only to Barcelona.

Full points from the home fixtures over Christmas and the New Year, following on the heels of the win away at Estudiantes earlier in December, would go a long way to ensuring safety from relegation.  To attract big festive crowds, the club sold a special 3-game ticket at very reasonable prices.
