Leonardo
La Bella
The games are now more important than at the beginning of the Regular Season. We may still expect few shocking results in upcoming 4 rounds. There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Estudiantes O. (18-9) in La Plata on Sunday night. Visitors were defeated by sixth ranked Gimnasia LP (9-19) 73-64. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Estudiantes O.. The hosts trailed by 2 points at the halftime before their 49-38 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Worth to mention a great performance of point guard Leonardo La-Bella (180-86) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 19 points and 10 assists and American forward Joe Efese (198, college: Cent.Conn.St.) who added 14 points, 13 rebounds and 4 blocks during the contest. At the losing side swingman Santiago Arese (196-87) responded with 9 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Gimnasia LP maintains sixth position with 9-19 record. Estudiantes O. at the other side still keeps top place with nine games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
Important game to mention about took place in Santa Fe. Fourth ranked Salta Basket (13-15) saved a 1-point victory on the road edging top-ranked Union SF (23-7) 96-95 on Wednesday evening. The winners were led by Nigerian-American power forward Ike Okoye (206-86, college: Boise St., agency: Aspire Sports) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 12 points and 10 rebounds and LaQuan Prowell supported him with 15 points and 5 rebounds. Even 38 points (!!!) by swingman Bruno Barovero (194-90) did not help to save the game for Union SF. Union SF's coach Daniel Beltramo rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Salta Basket maintains fourth position with 13-15 record. Union SF at the other side still keeps top place with seven games lost. Salta Basket will play against BHY Tiro Federal (#4) in Morteros in the next round. Union SF will play at home against the league's leader Hindu and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
A very close game took place in Plaza Huincul between Petr.Argentino and CA Platense. Sixth ranked Petr.Argentino (9-18) got a very close home victory over 3rd ranked CA Platense (14-14). Petr.Argentino managed to escape with a 2-point win 73-71 on Sunday evening. Darnell Dodson fired a double-double by scoring 23 points and 14 rebounds for the winners. Petr.Argentino's coach Daniel Jaule used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Kevin Young produced 14 points and 9 rebounds for lost side. Petr.Argentino maintains sixth position with 9-18 record, which they share with Obera TC. Loser CA Platense keeps the third place with 14 games lost. They share the position with Temperley. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
Very important is a road loss of first ranked Ciclista (18-13) against fourth ranked Huracan (17-12) on Sunday night. Visiting Ciclista was defeated by Huracan in Trelew 81-71. It was a very good performance for Jerome Hill who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 17 points and 10 rebounds. Huracan moved-up to third place. Ciclista at the other side still keeps top position with 13 games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked CA Platense (14-14) against fourth ranked Huracan (17-12) on Friday night. Visiting CA Platense was defeated by Huracan in a tough game in Trelew 85-91. Worth to mention a great performance of Jerome Hill who helped to win the game recording 31 points and 9 rebounds. Huracan moved-up to third place which they share with defeated CA Platense. Loser CA Platense keeps the third position with 14 games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 28: Villa Angela won against Comunicaciones on the opponent's court 76-61. Hindu managed to outperform Barrio Parque in a home game 85-75. Union SF managed to beat SP Las Parejas on the road 87-81. Independiente BBC defeated Obera TC on its own court 79-72. Rocamora was beaten by Atenas Carmen in Carmen de Patagones 87-75. BHY Tiro Federal won against Salta Basket at home 73-67. Temperley unfortunately lost to La Union on the opponent's court 69-86. Villa San Martin recorded a loss to Villa Angela in a home game 65-69. Rocamora was defeated by Olimpo BB on the road 82-77. Atenas Carmen was beaten by Ciclista on its own court 73-77. Salta Basket lost to San Isidro in San Francisco 65-78. Parque Sur unfortunately lost to Temperley at home 66-74. Barrio Parque recorded a loss to BHY Tiro Federal on the opponent's court 66-75. Alianza Viedma defeated Ciclista in a home game 92-80. Hindu beat Villa Angela on the road 74-63.

Comunicaciones - Villa Angela 61-76

We cannot really consider it an upset in the game between close teams in Mercedes where their biggest opponent Comunicaciones (22-9) was defeated by third ranked Villa Angela (18-12) 76-61 on Monday. The guests trailed by 10 points after first quarter, but they stormed back and won the game by 15 points. Villa Angela made 16-of-20 free shots (80.0 percent) during the game. Villa Angela outrebounded Comunicaciones 41-26 including a 35-21 advantage in defensive rebounds. Worth to mention a great performance of point guard Martin Cequeira (180-88) who helped to win the game recording 18 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field) and Alejandro Spalla (197-89, agency: DTMones) who added 13 points and 9 rebounds during the contest. At the losing side forward Nicolas Lauria (202-88) responded with 11 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists and Ariel Pau (184-84) scored 12 points. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Villa Angela maintains third position with 18-12 record having just three point less than leader Union SF. Loser Comunicaciones keeps the second place with nine games lost. Villa Angela will face Mitre Tuc. (#7) in Tucuman in the next round. Comunicaciones will play at home against the league's second-placed San Isidro (#2) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Hindu - Barrio Parque 85-75

Rather predictable result in Chaco where first ranked Hindu (24-5) defeated 3rd ranked Barrio Parque (15-14) 85-75 on Monday. The hosts were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Hindu dominated down low during the game scoring 58 of its points in the paint compared to Barrio Parque's 30 and made 18-of-23 free shots (78.3 percent) during the game. Worth to mention a great performance of American Kenny Jones (198-84, college: Kentucky St., agency: DTMones) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 18 points and 12 rebounds and forward Pablo Fernandez (198-82) who added 18 points and 8 rebounds during the contest. Hindu's coach Jeronimo Trezza allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. At the losing side center Emiliano Rossi (200-88) responded with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 10 rebounds and Luciano Guerra scored 17 points and 5 rebounds. Hindu have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 24-5 record. Barrio Parque lost third consecutive game. They keep the third place with 14 games lost. Hindu will face Sportivo (#6) in Las Parejas in the next round where they are favorite.

SP Las Parejas - Union SF 81-87

Not a big story in a game in Las Parejas where 6th ranked Sportivo (7-24) was defeated by first ranked Union SF (23-7) 87-81 on Monday. Sportivo was trailing by 5 points at halftime but managed to get 1-point lead after three quarters before a 29-22 charge of Union SF, which allowed them to win the game. Worth to mention a great performance of point guard Guillermo Aliende (178-97, agency: DTMones) who helped to win the game recording 20 points and 8 assists (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field) and swingman Bruno Barovero (194-90) who added 19 points during the contest.

Union SF maintains first position with 23-7 record. Newly promoted Sportivo keeps the sixth place with 24 games lost. Union SF will face league's leader Hindu in Chaco in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Sportivo will play at home against the league's leader Hindu (#1) and hope to win that game.
