LeRoy
Hickerson
The Regular Season in LNBP just ended. The round 40 was rather boring as all games ended with very predictable results.

LNBP top team - Halcones UV Xalapa (36-4) managed to deliver another win on Saturday. This time they beat sixteenth ranked Gigantes (3-37) in Toluca 113-98. The game was mostly controlled by Halcones UV Xalapa. Gigantes managed to win fourth quarter 28-25. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Halcones UV Xalapa shot 64.3 percent from the field. Halcones UV Xalapa had a 27-16 advantage in offensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. Worth to mention a quality performance of American guard LeRoy Hickerson (196-82, college: Cumberlands) who helped to win the game recording 23 points and 6 assists (on 10-of-11 shooting from the field) and international guard Orlando Mendez-Valdez (185-86, college: W.Kentucky) who added 21 points during the contest. Halcones UV Xalapa's coach Angel Gonzalez used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side American forward Jermaine Johnson (201-85, college: Charleston, agency: Interperformances) responded with 36 points (!!!), 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Halcones UV Xalapa have an impressive 12-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 36-4 record. Gigantes lost ninth consecutive game. Newly promoted team stay dead last with 37 lost games.
Sixth ranked Pioneros (28-12) crushed at home 9th ranked Abejas (19-21) by 38 points 117-79, which is the biggest margin this round. The winners were led by American point guard Jeremiah Dominguez (168-85, college: Portland St.) who scored that evening 22 points and 5 assists and Forrest Fisher supported him with 18 points. Even 19 points and 9 rebounds by American-Jamaican forward McHugh Mattis (198-84, college: S.Florida) did not help to save the game for Abejas. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Pioneros have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Panteras. Abejas lost sixth consecutive game. They keep the ninth position with 21 games lost.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 40: Lechugueros were destroyed by Soles on the opponent's court 90-68. Barreteros unfortunately lost to Corr.Victoria in a home game 85-90. Huracanes recorded a loss to Panteras on the road 83-89.

Soles - Lechugueros 90-68

Very expected game in Mexicali where 12th ranked Lechugueros (12-28) were crushed by third ranked Soles (31-9) 90-68. Lechugueros were ahead by 3 points at the halftime before a 53-28 second half run of Soles. They dominated down low during the game scoring 48 of its points in the paint compared to Lechugueros' 28. Soles forced 21 Lechugueros turnovers. The winners were led by Panamanian forward Jamelle Horne (200-88, college: Arizona) who scored that evening 20 points and 5 rebounds and the former international forward Roman Martinez (201-88, college: N.Mexico) supported him with 12 points and 8 rebounds. Soles' coach Ivan Deniz felt very confident that he used entire bench and allowed the starting five to rest. Even 27 points and 4 assists (made all of his ten free throws !!!) by Trinidad and Tobago-American point guard Ian Young (191-81, college: Auburn) did not help to save the game for Lechugueros. The former international forward Conor Turley (200, college: Pennsylvania) added 13 points and 10 rebounds for lost side. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Soles have an impressive six-game winning streak. They maintain third position with 31-9 record having five points less than leader Halc.Xalapa, which they share with Toros.

Pioneros - Abejas 117-79

Sixth ranked Pioneros (28-12) crushed at home 9th ranked Abejas (19-21) by 38 points 117-79, which is the biggest margin this round. The game without a history. Pioneros led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They shot 64.5 percent from the field and made 24-of-26 charity shots (92.3 percent) during the game. Pioneros players were unselfish on offense dishing 26 assists comparing to just 9 passes made by Abejas' players. The winners were led by American point guard Jeremiah Dominguez (168-85, college: Portland St.) who scored that evening 22 points and 5 assists and the former international guard Forrest Fisher (193-80) supported him with 18 points. Five Pioneros players scored in double figures. Even 19 points and 9 rebounds by American-Jamaican forward McHugh Mattis (198-84, college: S.Florida) did not help to save the game for Abejas. American forward Steffphon Pettigrew (195-89, college: W.Kentucky) added 16 points and 6 rebounds for lost side. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Pioneros have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Panteras. Abejas lost sixth consecutive game. They keep the ninth position with 21 games lost.
Top scorers:

Barreteros - Corr.Victoria 85-90

We could consider it a predictable result in the game between close teams in Zacatecas where eleventh ranked Correcaminos (16-24) defeated 10th ranked Barreteros (17-23) 90-85. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Barreteros won third quarter 24-21. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The winners were led by American forward Marquise Gainous (206-76, college: TCU) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 20 points and 12 rebounds and naturalized American guard Lorenzo Keeler (188-85, college: Cal Poly - SLO) supported him with 21 points and 4 steals. Four Correcaminos players scored in double figures. Even 27 points and 6 rebounds by Puerto Rican-American forward Florentino Valencia (198-85, college: Toledo, agency: Paris Global Sports) did not help to save the game for Barreteros. American forward Jerome Habel (208-85, college: San Diego St.) added 25 points for lost side. Correcaminos maintains eleventh position with 16-24 record. Barreteros at the other side keep the tenth place with 23 games lost.
Top scorers:
Corr.Victoria: L.Keeler 21+1reb+2ast, M.Gainous 20+12reb+1ast, G.Maciel 14+7reb+1ast, J.Hutchingson Mejia 11+2reb+2ast, M.Allen 8+3reb+7ast, E.Hare 6+3reb

Panteras - Huracanes 89-83

Not a big story in a game in Aguascalientes where 8th ranked Huracanes (22-18) were defeated by fifth ranked Panteras (28-12) 89-83. Huracanes were ahead by 3 points at the halftime before a 53-44 second half run of Panteras. They also forced 26 Huracanes turnovers. The winners were led by Puerto Rican point guard Ricardo Melendez (179-83, agency: Paris Global Sports) who scored that evening 33 points (!!!) and 4 assists and the former international guard Karim Malpica (190-78) supported him with 12 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 steals. Panteras' coach Juan Cardona allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Even 18 points, 6 rebounds, 8 assists and 4 steals by American swingman Edward Basden (196-83, college: Charlotte) did not help to save the game for Huracanes. The former international forward Jesus Gonzalez (195-86) added 17 points and 6 rebounds for lost side. Five Huracanes players scored in double figures. Panteras have an impressive six-game winning streak. They maintain fifth position with 28-12 record, which they share with Pioneros. Huracanes lost third consecutive game. They keep the eighth place with 18 games lost.
Top scorers:
