There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in La Liga. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

Third defeat of league's leader La Union (4-3) against third ranked Estudiantes C. (5-3) 81-75 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of La Union. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Estudiantes C. made 16-of-21 free shots (76.2 percent) during the game. American forward Daviyon Draper (201-94, college: FIU) orchestrated the victory by scoring 25 points and 9 rebounds. Venezuelan swingman Pedro Chourio (186-90, agency: Pro Sports) contributed with 19 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. American forward John Flowers (200-89, college: W.Virginia, agency: Octagon Europe) answered with 26 points and 7 rebounds for La Union. Estudiantes C. keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Gimnasia. La Union at the other side dropped to the second place with three games lost. They share the position with 3 other teams. They were replaced at the leadership position by San Lorenzo. La Union will play next round against strong Comunicaciones trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Estudiantes C. will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Penarol as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Penarol defeated 3rd placed Weber Bahia in Mar del Plata 86-79. American forward DuVaughn Maxwell (201-91, college: Hampton) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 10 rebounds for the winners and Damian Tintorelli chipped in 14 points and 6 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field).
