Martinez
There were just 7 rounds played in Regular Season of Liga MB and we can clearly see which teams will fight for top positions and which will try to avoid bottom places. Host teams show no mercy winning all games.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Santa Tecla as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Santa Tecla defeated 3rd placed Brujos Izalco at home 107-90. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Brujos Izalco. Santa Tecla forced 20 Brujos Izalco turnovers. They shot the lights out from three sinking 14 long-distance shots on high 51.9 percentage. Santa Tecla looked well-organized offensively handing out 30 assists. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Santa Tecla made 7 blocks. Worth to mention a great performance of naturalized American point guard Robert Martinez (185-91, college: Our Lady Lake) who helped to win the game recording 29 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Cuban Lisvan Valdez (200-88) contributed with 31 points and 5 steals for the winners. Santa Tecla's coach used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American forward Garland McArthur (197-88, college: Voorhees) answered with a double-double by scoring 22 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists for Brujos Izalco. Undefeated Santa Tecla (5-0) have an impressive series of five victories in a row. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Brujos Izalco at the other side dropped to the fifth place with one game lost. They share the position with Denver-FAS and Sonsonate. Brujos Izalco will play next round against strong Canarios trying to get back on the winning streak.

Undefeated Isidro Metapan (4-1) recorded its first loss on the court of third ranked Quezaltepeque. Visitors were defeated by Quezaltepeque 88-80. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Isidro Metapan. It was a great evening for American Quincy Scates (197-89, college: Tenn Wesleyan) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 23 points, 12 rebounds and 7 assists. Douglas Bairez helped adding 24 points and 7 rebounds. At the losing side Venezuelan guard Edwin Mijares (186-94) responded with 32 points, 7 rebounds, 8 assists and 5 steals. The victory was the fourth consecutive win for Quezaltepeque. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Canarios and Isidro Metapan.
