Unicaja, top of the league for the first time in nine years

With just six games left on the calendar, this could massively favour the Malaga-based basketball team in the play-offs

For the first time in nearly a decade, Unicaja now sit top of the Liga ACB after their 88-77 win away at Manresa on Sunday afternoon.

The Malaga-based basketball side put in a gritty performance in Catalonia, where they initially struggled but eventually staged an impressive comeback to clinch victory.

This win, coupled with Real Madrid's 85-79 defeat to Barcelona in El Clásico later the same day, propelled Unicaja to the summit of the league table for the first time since the 2014-2015 season, when the team was led by Joan Plaza.

With just six games left to play, this development could massively favour Unicaja in the play-offs, where they would potentially be granted home-court advantage up to the final.

Ibon Navarro's side have shown remarkable consistency this year, losing just two games out of their previous 24.
