Luis Julio
The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute susprises and upsets.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked Academia (21-4) in Bucaramanga on Friday night. Visitors were defeated by third ranked Bucaros (15-10) 81-69. It ended at the same time the 11-game winning streak of Academia. They outrebounded Academia 48-35 including a 17-5 advantage in offensive rebounds. Worth to mention a great performance of Miguel Bermudez who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 14 points and 10 rebounds. Naturalized Venezuelan power forward Luis Julio (201-80) contributed with 10 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. Bucaros' coach Bernardo Gonzalez used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Center Cristian Arboleda (205-91) answered with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 18 rebounds for Academia. Bucaros maintains third place with 15-10 record having six points less than leader Academia. Academia at the other side still keeps top position with four games lost. Bucaros are looking forward to face Patriotas (#7) in Boyaca in the next round. Academia will play at home against Halcones (#5) and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Cimarrones (16-9) against fifth ranked Halcones (13-12) on Friday night. Visiting Cimarrones were defeated by Halcones in Cucuta 92-79. American forward R.J. McGhee (198, college: Oklahoma City, agency: CGL Sports) stepped up and scored 23 points, 5 assists and 6 steals for the winners and Jose Baquero chipped in 9 points and 17 rebounds. Halcones' coach used entire bench and allowed the starting five to rest. At the losing side American guard Brandon Sperling (196-90, college: Humboldt St.) responded with a double-double by scoring 28 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists. Halcones have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Sabios. Cimarrones lost third consecutive game. They keep the second position with nine games lost. Halcones will play against league's leader Academia in Montana in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Cimarrones will play at home against Condores and hope to get back on the winning track.

Piratas will meet at home higher ranked Sabios (#4) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Condores will play against the league's second-placed Cimarrones having rather not much hope for a victory.
The game between fourth ranked Sabios (13-12) and 7th ranked Patriotas (8-17) in Manizales ended with biggest points difference. Sabios outscored guests from Boyaca 68-45. Cory Bradford fired a double-double by scoring 11 points, 8 rebounds and 10 assists for the winners.
