The quarter-final phase of the known Major League begins next Wednesday, and the contribution of the Cuban sportsmen is considered crucial for the aspirations of their respective organizations.

A veteran with several years – and titles – in the Salvadoran league, Torres stood out in the resurrection of the Aguilas club, which will face Cojutepeque in the start of the local postseason.

Torres averaged 23 points, 11 rebounds and almost three assists during the regular season, but above all he brought experience and leadership to the team from the eastern department of San Miguel.

Valdes, in turn, repeats with Santa Tecla, top seed in the playoffs and favorite to beat Chalchuapa in the fight for the semifinals of the competition, which returned after a year of inactivity.

Oliva, who joined the team just two weeks ago, but with scoring averages above 25 points, has the challenge of guiding the Brujos de Izalco against the powerful San Salvador BC, defending champion.
