Brown
The round 18 was rather boring as all games ended with very predictable results.

Bottom-ranked Giants is still unable to win any game. This time they lost on the road their tenth consecutive match to seventh ranked Denver-FAS (7-5) 95-71 on Wednesday evening. Denver-FAS forced 22 Giants turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 28 assists comparing to just 15 passes made by Giants' players. American players dominated the game. It was a good game for point guard Anthony Brown (193-89, college: Imperial Valley JC) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 23 points, 9 rebounds and 10 assists. Thomas Alexander (197, college: Arkansas Tech) contributed with 26 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Guard Macari Brooks (190-92, college: Pikeville) replied with 26 points and 7 rebounds for Giants. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Denver-FAS have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place. Giants at the other side still closes the standings with ten games lost. Denver-FAS will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Giants' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from San Salvador Arcense.
Important game to mention about took place in San Salvador. Fourteenth ranked Arcense (2-10) saved a 3-point derby victory at home edging higher ranked Sonsonate (6-6) 80-77 on Wednesday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the guest team. American point guard Danny Lawhorn (183, college: Midwestern St.) scored 37 points (!!!), 9 assists and 5 steals to lead the charge for the winners and Mike Moore chipped in 21 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. The best for the losing side was Panamanian forward Manuel Gudino (195-95) with 25 points and 9 rebounds. Arcense maintains fourteenth position with 2-10 record. Newly promoted Sonsonate dropped to the ninth place with six games lost. Arcense's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in San Salvador to the arena Giants.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 18: Cojute smashed Santa Ana on the road 116-93. 11 Lobos was destroyed by Halcones on its own court 87-109. Quezaltepeque unfortunately lost to Brujos Izalco in a road game 76-87.

Important game to mention about took place in San Salvador. Fourteenth ranked Arcense (2-10) saved a 3-point derby victory at home edging higher ranked Sonsonate (6-6) 80-77 on Wednesday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the guest team. Arcense forced 24 Sonsonate turnovers. Strangely Sonsonate outrebounded Arcense 53-36 including 20 on the offensive glass.

Santa Ana - Cojute 93-116

No shocking result in a game when ninth ranked Cojute (6-5) crushed on the road 13th ranked Santa Ana (2-9) 116-93. Cojute made 17-of-21 charity shots (81.0 percent) during the game.

11 Lobos - Halcones 87-109

Very expected game when 11th ranked 11 Lobos (4-7) were smashed by fourth ranked Halcones (8-4) in Chalchuapa 109-87. Halcones players were unselfish on offense dishing 22 assists. American players dominated also this game.

Five Halcones and four 11 Lobos players scored in double figures. Halcones maintains fourth position with 8-4 record. 11 Lobos at the other side keep the eleventh place with seven games lost.

Brujos Izalco - Quezaltepeque 87-76

Rather predictable result when second ranked Brujos Izalco (10-1) won against at home 5th ranked Quezaltepeque (6-5) 87-76. Brujos Izalco had a 40-28 advantage in offensive rebounds. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 21 assists. Brujos Izalco brought some defensive toughness making 14 blocks. American players dominated also this game.
