Great game among two teams with different profiles, different styles but very consistent with their strenghts.
For MONTEBASAN50 Ruben Ortigoza always playing with a lot of speed due his athleticism, also providinggreat defense over Polo The Shooting Legend Barrios whom scored some 2 pointers but his 3 pointers were dry.
Faustino Gonzalez (F/C) played as always very intelligent outside-inside game, setting screens for Edgar Barrios (185-G-60) and Daniel Izzy. Edgar Ibanez (F/C) had to work a lot to stop him from the perimeter and of course to stop his front court game.
Luis Fernando Dose (201-F/C-65), 1.97 height did terrific from long distance hitting 5 three pointers, grabbing 10 rebounds eve though he came after 5 lost games due to back pain. Victor Lezcano and Fredy Ortigoza were important in the rotation but very cold in offense.
Victor Rolon 1.93 played great game controlling Enrique Burifaldi and Gerado Laratro 1.94, controlling both defense rebounds. Eduardo Parda Benitez did not play many minutes. Eurobasket found out he is sffering knee problems as well as Jorge Molinas whom played many minutes even though he is injured.
Osvaldo Velazquez, one of MONTEBASAN s leaders did not dress up for the game due to knee injury and back spasms. He usually is very effective in the second formation , very athletic player a specialist in defense.
This win gave MONTEBASAN the right to play the FINAL SERIES with FOMENTO. Unfortunately CIT is out of FINALS, came one game short , however their season at this III MAXI 50 was excellent and they are committed to come back to battle for the CHAMPIONSHIP next tournment.

Tonight will be the first tme the two strongest teams will encounter face to face in this season. Olimpia de Asuncion and Libertad Asuncion bothe have nost lost yet against any of the other 7 contenders.
On the other side Elias Sosa, Ramon Sanchez and Edgar Riveros are the ones to consider but obviously the LIBERTAD s squad has not found a great game rythm yet. They have quite great talent, they are quick but have not yet found collective game,
Their lack of a great Power Man might be one of the negative factors for the 2015 Champs. However they play great defense rotation with Manuel Aponte (179-PG-92), Marcos de Felice and Oscar Martinez.
Those of Juan Pablo Feliu (agency: DTMones ), 2016 Camps seem to have found major chemistry, perhaps isn t only chemistry but better technique skills and speed at the time of executing. No other team executes as Olimpia de Asuncion King does when playing ofense time is and also when playing defense.

Tough game have played CNC30 and DINAMO30 in the 7th semifinal game of the IV MAXI 30 PLANETA LEAGUE this last tuesday. The adressed player by Gioswall Acosta had to do their best to almos clinch a spont in the FINAL SERIES.
Nestor Rolon, Fernando Dose (198-F-94), Juanjo Zayas and Daniel Zayas played excellent basket IQ to overcome a strong DINAMO 30 team
whom is probably the strongest in th front court.
Pablo Cabrera, Cesar Marecos (191-F), Renzo Orue (198-F/C-83) and Diego Leoz (F/C) give them a strong and fearful front court, but their lack of speed many times had got DINAMO30 into trouble when trying to overcome lighter teams like CNC30.
Daniel Talavera (179-PG-77) point guard of CNC30 also gave CNC an extra gas after recovering from a big hamstring injury. He had to stop about two months to completely recover, but he isnt yet ready to give his best for CNC30 colors, however he is giving 10 to 15 minutes of quality game to back up Gustavo Dos Santos (184-G-73) and the Zayas brothers.
After this 7th SEMI FINAL round the teams reached these positions:
1. CNC30 14 pts 2. EXA SAN JOSE 13 pts 3. DINAMO 30 11 pts 4. CERRO30 10 pts
CNC30 and EXA SAN JOSE has still has 2 more games to play, while DINAMO and CERRO have only one left in their calendar.
