Chris Gaston
It's still too early stage of the Regular Season in BSN, but even now we can clearly see the differece between stronger teams and outsiders.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Santeros as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Santeros defeated 3rd placed Fajardo in Coamo 80-76. The hosts trailed by 8 points after three quarters before their 33-21 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Santeros made 20-of-21 free shots (95.2 percent) during the game. Santeros outrebounded Fajardo 42-27 including 27 on the defensive glass. The best player for the winners was international Chris Gaston (201-89, college: Fordham) who had a double-double by scoring 21 points and 11 rebounds. Dominican guard Rigoberto Mendoza (190-92) chipped in 26 points and 7 rebounds. American forward Damion James (201-87, college: Texas) produced 28 points and 7 rebounds (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) for the guests. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Fajardo at the other side keeps the third place with two games lost. They share the position with Humacao. Fajardo will play next round against Brujos trying to get back on the winning streak. Santeros will try to continue on its current victory against eighth ranked Vaqueros in Bayamon.
Important game to mention about took place in Arecibo. Seventh ranked Leones (2-3) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 4th placed Capitanes (2-2) 88-86 on Saturday evening. Dominican Victor Liz (188-86, agency: Basket Management Solutions) orchestrated the victory by scoring 24 points and 6 rebounds. Hakim Warrick contributed with 21 points for the winners. American forward Chane Behanan (198-92, college: Louisville) answered with a double-double by scoring 19 points, 15 rebounds and 4 blocks for Capitanes. Leones moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Bayamon and San German. Defending champion Capitanes dropped to the fifth position with two games lost. Leones will play against league's second-placed Piratas in Quebradillas in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Capitanes will play on the road against Indios in Mayaguez and hope to get back on the winning track.
Undefeated leader Piratas delivered the fourth consecutive victory on Saturday night. This time they beat 6th ranked Atleticos (2-3) 89-82 in San German. Michael Rosario stepped up and scored 30 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Courtney Fells responded with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 10 rebounds. Atleticos' coach rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Piratas have a solid series of four victories in a row. Despite that victory Piratas went down to second position due to points difference. Loser Atleticos keep the sixth place with three games lost. They share the position with Bayamon and Ponce. Piratas will meet at home Leones (#7) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Atleticos will play against Caciques in Humacao and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Mayaguez was also worth to mention about. Fifth ranked Caciques (3-2) played at the court of 8th ranked Indios (1-4). Caciques defeated Indios 96-86. Jarrid Famous nailed a double-double by scoring 17 points and 16 rebounds for the winning side. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Caciques have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to third place, which they share with Fajardo. Indios at the other side dropped to the ninth position with four games lost. Caciques' next round opponent will be Atleticos (#6) in San German. Indios will play at home against Capitanes and hope to win that game.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Guayama. Local Brujos (1-5) lost to second ranked Santeros (5-1) 91-76 on Saturday night. The best player for the winners was Omar Samhan who had a double-double by scoring 14 points and 15 rebounds. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. Santeros keep a position of league leader. Loser Brujos keep the tenth place with five games lost. Santeros will face Vaqueros (#8) in Bayamon in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Brujos will play against Fajardo and hope to win that game.

In the last game of round 5 Bayamon defeated Guayama in a road game 77-67.
