Titus Mims
Host teams show no mercy winning all games.

The game between second ranked Cimarrones (13-6) and seventh ranked Patriotas (7-12) was the most important one in the last round on Monday night. Cimarrones were defeated by Patriotas in a tough game in Boyaca 63-72. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Cimarrones. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Patriotas made 7 blocks. American forward Titus Mims (201, college: Hardin-Simmons) fired a double-double by scoring 29 points, 15 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners. His fellow American import power forward Aramie Brooks (203-87, college: Northwestern St.) chipped in 23 points and 9 rebounds. American forward Tyquane Goard (201-93, college: Marshall) produced a double-double by scoring 17 points and 20 rebounds (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field) for lost side. Cimarrones' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Defending champion maintains seventh place with 7-12 record. Cimarrones at the other side keep the second position with six games lost. They share it with Bucaros. Patriotas are again looking forward to face league's second-placed Cimarrones in Quibdo-Choco in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Cimarrones will have a break next round.
Leader Academia delivered the sixteenth victory. This time they crushed 8th ranked Piratas (2-17) 101-74 in Montana. Worth to mention a great performance of Puerto Rican-Dominican forward Jonathan Rodriguez (196-87, college: Campbell) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 30 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists. Divier Perez contributed with 13 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. Academia's coach felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American guard Brandon Givens (198-87, college: NC-Wesleyan) answered with 25 points and 7 rebounds for Piratas. Academia (16-3) have an impressive series of six victories in a row. They maintain first place. Piratas lost third consecutive game. They stay at the bottom position with 17 games lost. Academia will again play against bottom-ranked Piratas (#8) in Bogota in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Piratas will have a break next round.
The game in Manizales supposed to be also quite interesting. 4th placed Condores (8-11) played at the court of fifth ranked Sabios (9-10). Sabios smashed Condores 93-71 on Tuesday. It was a great evening for John Hernandez who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 17 rebounds. At the losing side Kevin Mickens responded with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 11 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Sabios moved-up to fourth place. Condores lost their third game in a row. They dropped to the fifth position with 11 games lost. They share it with Halcones. Sabios will again meet at home Condores (#6) in the next round. Condores will have a break next round.

In the last game of round 19 Halcones were defeated by Bucaros in Bucaramanga 112-96.
