UCAM Murcia gets Campazzo on loan again
UCAM Murcia reached a new agreement with Real Madrid to bring back playmaker Facundo Campazzo on loan for another season and make their 7DAYS EuroCup debuts together, the club announced Tuesday. Campazzo (1.79 meters, 25 years old), currently playing in the 2016 Olympics with Argentina, averaged 12.6 points and 5.3 assists in 37 Spanish League games with Murcia last season, helping it reach the playoffs for the first time in club history. Campazzo joined Madrid before the start of the 2014-15 season and helped win the club's ninth EuroLeague trophy, not to mention the Spanish League and Spanish Cup, by season's end. Campazzo had joined Madrid from Peñarol Mar del Plata of his native Argentina, where he made debut in 2008 and stayed until 2014, winning four Argentinean League titles. He was Argentinean Finals MVP in 2012 and Argentinean Cup MVP in 2010. In his final season at home, Campazzo averaged 15.9 points, 4.3 rebounds, 6 assists and 2.1 steals in 48 Argentinean League games in the 2013-14 season. Campazzo helped Argentina win the 2012 South American championships, get a silver medal at the 2015 FIBA Americas Tournament and a bronze in 2013.
