Barça Regal were not able to win the Copa del Rey this season. The competition was played at the Palau Sant Jordi in February.

Xavi Pascual’s men beat Lucentum Alicante by 75-54 in the quarterfinals. Xavi Rabaseda and Erazem Lorbek, with 16 and 17 points respectively, played key roles in their team’s victory. Furthermore, the team finished the match with an overall evaluation of 101 to Alicante’s 38.

In the semifinals, the Culés saw off Caja Laboral by 66-57 thanks to an impressive Lorbek. The Slovenian scored 26 points and led his team to victory.

Difficult final match

The competition’s grueling schedule and the injuries that the Barça players had coming into the final, like Juan Carlos Navarro and Eidon (who was injured in the final), played a key role in Barça Regal’s performance. Real Madrid beat the Catalans in the final by 74-91.
