Cuello
The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with derby games and favorites losing the games.

Tenth-ranked Boca Juniors (11-28) made lots of trouble for second ranked Ferrocarril (24-13) in Buenos Aires on Tuesday. Ferrocarril managed to secure only one-point victory 71-70. However their fans expected much easier game. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Boca Juniors won third quarter 23-22. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Martin Cuello (193-93) fired 20 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. American-Puerto Rican Ramon Clemente (200-85, college: Wichita St.) chipped in 17 points. Ferrocarril's coach Alvaro Castineira used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Greek Fotios Lampropoulos (206-83) produced a double-double by scoring 17 points and 13 rebounds for lost side. Ferrocarril maintains second place with 24-13 record having just three points less than leader San Lorenzo. Boca Juniors lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the tenth position with 28 games lost. Ferrocarril are looking forward to face Argentino (#5) in Junin in the next round. Boca Juniors will play at home against La Union (#8) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Important game to mention about took place in Santiado Estero. Fifth ranked Quimsa (21-16) saved a 1-point derby victory at home edging 7th ranked Libertad Sunchales (18-19) 83-82 in the game for the fifth place. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Carl Elliott (193-83, college: G.Washington) who helped to win the game recording 23 points and 4 assists. Aaron Harper contributed with 17 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Quimsa's coach Nestor Garcia allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. International point guard Jose Vildoza (190-96) answered with 26 points for Libertad Sunchales. Quimsa maintains fifth place with 21-16 record which they share with defeated Libertad Sunchales. Libertad Sunchales at the other side dropped to the fifth position with 19 games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. Quimsa will play against Atenas (#9) in Cordoba in the next round.

Very important is a road loss of second ranked Ferrocarril (24-13) against sixth ranked Argentino (18-19) on Friday night. Visiting Ferrocarril was crushed by Argentino in Junin 68-43. Novar Gadson stepped up and scored 18 points for the winners. At the losing side Jose-Ignacio Alessio responded with 11 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Argentino moved-up to fifth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Loser Ferrocarril keeps the second position with 13 games lost. Argentino will again meet league's second-placed Ferrocarril in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Ferrocarril will have a break next round.

(19-21) 81-67. Reynaldo Garcia fired 10 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners.

No shocking result in a game in Concordia where second ranked Estudiantes C. (27-13) defeated 9th ranked Atenas (13-23) 77-71 on Tuesday.
