Perfumerias, meet Sancho Lyttle.
Perfumerias has won all sorts of honors this year. They're in the quarter-finals of Euroleague. They're second in the Liga Feminina. With that in mind, you could forgive Perfumerias for slacking a little bit, as Perfumerias falls to Ibiza by the score of 80-65 on Friday.
Yesterday was the very first time that Perfumerias lost on its home court this season. Coach Jose Ignacio Hernandez admitted that it "hurts a lot".
The box score is here. An album of photos can be found here.
