The most exciting game of round 22 in the Liga MB took place in Izalco. This derby game ended with only three-point home defeat of their biggest opponent Brujos Izalco (12-2) to third ranked Isidro Metapan (10-3) 85-82 on Thursday evening. It ended at the same time the nine-game winning streak of Brujos Izalco. Worth to mention a great performance of Spanish-American forward Duane James (196-83, college: Binghamton) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 23 points and 13 rebounds. Venezuelan guard Edwin Mijares (186-94) contributed with 26 points and 4 assists for the winners. American guard Christopher Blake (197-88, college: Detroit Mercy) replied with a double-double by scoring 22 points, 6 rebounds and 11 assists for Brujos Izalco. Isidro Metapan maintains third position with 10-3 record having four points less than leader Santa Tecla. Brujos Izalco at the other side keeps the second place with two games lost. Isidro Metapan are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Giants (#15) in San Salvador in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Brujos Izalco will play on the road against 11 Lobos (#11) in Chalchuapa and is hoping to win this game.
Another interesting game for Canarios (7-6) which hosted in Ahuachapan against 5th ranked Quezaltepeque (8-6). Eighth ranked Canarios crushed visitors 106-86. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Quezaltepeque. American players dominated the game.
