There were only 2 rounds played so far and it's still very beginning of the Regular Season in La Liga. There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with defeat of the leader, derby games and favorites losing the games. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

Quimsa smashed Atenas in Santiado del Estero 82-54. Quimsa dominated down low during the game scoring 42 of its points in the paint compared to Atenas' 22 and made 16-of-21 free shots (76.2 percent) during the game. They outrebounded Atenas 38-26 including 33 on the defensive glass. Quimsa looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. American-Jamaican center Torin Francis (210-83, college: Notre Dame) had a double-double by scoring 16 points and 12 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and the former international Leonel Schattmann (193-87) chipped in 22 points and 6 assists during the contest. The former international Nicolas Romano (200-87) responded with 13 points and 5 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Atenas will play next round against strong Instituto trying to get back on the winning streak. It will be a derby game for which supporters look forward to, where their team will face at home their local rival from Cordoba - Instituto. Quimsa will try to continue on its current victory against Libertad Sunchales at home.
Gimnasia (3-1) recorded a loss in Mar del Plata. Visitors were edged by Penarol (2-1) 73-70. Naturalized Italian center Damian Tintorelli (204-81) notched a double-double by scoring 17 points and 13 rebounds to lead the effort and Bruno Barovero supported him with 18 points and 8 assists. Even 13 points and 8 rebounds by the former international forward Franco Giorgetti (201-92) did not help to save the game for Gimnasia. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Penarol's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Mar del Plata Quilmes MP.
Quite upsetting was Weber Bahia's home defeat in a game versus Gimnasia 71-66. The best player for the winners was Lucas Perez who scored 13 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line). Jose Materan produced 13 points for the hosts. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. Gimnasia will meet Argentino (#5) in the next round. Weber Bahia will have a break next round.
Another interesting game was a derby match between two teams from Buenos Aires: Ferrocarril (#2) and Boca Juniors (#4). Boca Juniors was smashed at home by 17 points 64-81 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. Mariano Fierro orchestrated the victory by scoring 15 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Ferrocarril's next round opponent will be Hispano Am. (#5) in Rio Gallegos. Boca Juniors will play at home against San Lorenzo and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Another interesting game was again a derby between two local teams from Buenos Aires: Obras Basket (#4) and Ferrocarril (#2). Obras Basket (2-2) won against visiting Ferrocarril (2-2) 87-82. Maurice Kemp had a double-double by scoring 27 points and 11 rebounds (was perfect 11-for-11 from the free throw line !!!) to lead the charge for the winners. Obras Basket's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Buenos Aires to the arena .

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 2: Quimsa won against Libertad S. on the opponent's court 82-74. Olimpico LB managed to outperform Atenas in a home game 78-61. Argentino recorded a loss to Weber Bahia on the road 80-68. Estudiantes C. defeated Comunicaciones on its own court 89-79. San Martin C. was beaten by La Union in Formosa 97-90. Boca Jrs destroyed Hispano Am. at home 90-70. Obras Basket lost to undefeated San Lorenzo on the opponent's court 72-101.



Weber Bahia - Gimnasia 66-71

Quite upsetting was Weber Bahia's home defeat in a game versus Gimnasia 71-66. They made 16-of-18 free shots (88.9 percent) during the game. The best player for the winners was point guard Lucas Perez (185-87) who scored 13 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line). Center Diego Romero (206-82, college: Florida St.) chipped in 10 points and 9 rebounds. Five Gimnasia players scored in double figures. Venezuelan swingman Jose Materan (196-96) produced 13 points and point guard Facundo Corvalan (188-98) added 14 points and 4 steals respectively for the hosts.

San Lorenzo - Obras Basket 101-72

Rather expected game in Almagra where Obras Basket (2-2) was crushed by San Lorenzo (3-0) 101-72 on Monday. San Lorenzo dominated down low during the game scoring 74 of its points in the paint compared to Obras Basket's 40. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 30 assists comparing to just 8 passes made by Obras Basket's players. American center Jerome Meyinsse (207-88, college: Virginia, agency: IPZ) scored 24 points and 8 rebounds (on 11-of-12 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners and international Maximo Fjellerup (198-97) chipped in 17 points during the contest. Four San Lorenzo players scored in double figures. American power forward Eric Anderson (204-93, college: New Haven, agency: Duran International) responded with 10 points and 6 rebounds and forward Francisco Barbotti (194-98) scored 9 points and 5 rebounds. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. San Lorenzo will face Boca Juniors (#4) in Buenos Aires in the next round.

Boca Jrs - Ferrocarril 64-81

Another interesting game was a derby match between two teams from Buenos Aires: Ferrocarril (#2) and Boca Juniors (#4).
