The Second Stage in LigaA just started. The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with defeat of the leader, derby games and favorites losing the games.

Top ranked Penarol (11-3) recorded its third loss in Mar del Plata on Friday night. Hosts were defeated by seventh ranked Quimsa (8-7) 76-71. It ended at the same time the 12-game winning streak of Penarol. The guests trailed by 7 points after three quarters before their 25-13 charge, which allowed them to win the game. The former international forward Sebastian Vega (200-F-88) fired 18 points and 5 steals for the winners. American center James Williams (204-79, college: Brown Mackie, agency: Dream Team Management) chipped in 10 points and 9 rebounds. International power forward Leonardo Gutierrez (201-78) produced 12 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists for lost side. Quimsa have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain seventh place with 8-7 record. Defending champion Penarol still keeps top position with three games lost. Quimsa are looking forward to face Wuber-Est.Bahia (#8) in Bahia Blanca in the next round. Penarol will play at home against Libertad Sunchales (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked 9 de Julio (3-11) against seventh ranked La Union (3-12) on Friday night. Visiting 9 de Julio was defeated by La Union in a tough game in Formosa 79-84. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of 9 de Julio. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Gregory Lewis (200-78, college: Winthrop, agency: Dream Team Management) who helped to win the game recording 23 points and 6 rebounds.

GECR Indalo - Boca Jrs 85-80

The game in Comodoro R. was also quite interesting. 5th ranked Boca Juniors (5-8) played at the court of sixth ranked GECR Indalo (7-7). GECR Indalo managed to secure a 5-point victory 85-80 on Friday. Boca Juniors trailed by 11 points at halftime and as many as 15 after three quarters before a 30-20 last quarter charge cut the deficit to 80-85 at the end of the game.

Wuber-Est.Bahia - Quimsa 72-70

A very interesting game took place in Bahia Blanca. It ended with only two-point defeat on the road of 7th ranked Quimsa (8-7) to tenth ranked Wuber-Est.Bahia (7-6) 72-70 on Wednesday evening. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Quimsa. It looked good early as Quimsa took an 4-point lead at the end of first quarter. But then Wuber-Est.Bahia had a 23-10 second period charge getting the lead and Quimsa was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 70-72. American forward LaVell Blanchard (201-81, college: Michigan) nailed 16 points and 9 rebounds for the winning side and forward Federico Ferrini (194-83) accounted for 17 points (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field).
