There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked San Lorenzo (27-12) in Buenos Aires on Wednesday night. Visitors were defeated by second ranked Ferrocarril (26-14) 70-66. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of San Lorenzo. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But San Lorenzo won third quarter 15-11. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Ferrocarril won last quarter 21-18. It was a great evening for American center Andrew Feeley (206-83, college: UMBC) who led his team to a victory scoring 13 points and 5 rebounds. Martin Cuello (193-93) helped adding 13 points. Ferrocarril's coach Alvaro Castineira used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. The best for the losing side was the former international Marcos Mata (201-86) with 14 points and 5 rebounds.
