Dar Tucker
After 6 rounds played we can already see who rules in the La Liga and who belongs to weaker ones. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The game had a very big importance for third-ranked San Lorenzo as it allowed them to take a leadership position. San Lorenzo smashed 10th ranked San Martin Corrientes in Almagra 114-77. San Lorenzo shot 63.6 percent from the field. San Lorenzo had a 31-19 advantage in offensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 27 assists comparing to just 12 passes made by San Martin Corrientes' players. American-Jordanian Dar Tucker (193-88, college: De Paul) scored 23 points (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line) to lead the charge for the winners and Uruguayan power forward Mathias Calfani (204-92, agency: Pro Sports) chipped in 15 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was Serbian power forward Milos Petkovic (204-91) with 16 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. San Lorenzo have a solid three-game winning streak. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. San Martin Corrientes at the other side keeps the tenth place with three games lost. San Martin Corrientes will play next round against strong Boca Juniors trying to get back on the winning streak. San Lorenzo will try to continue on its current victory against eighteenth ranked Estudiantes C. in Concordia.
Undefeated Instituto (2-1) recorded its first loss in Buenos Aires. Visitors were defeated by eighth ranked Ferro (4-2) 85-80. American power forward Charles Mitchell (203-93, college: Georgia Tech, agency: Slash Sports) notched a double-double by scoring 20 points and 11 rebounds to lead the effort and Mariano Fierro supported him with 22 points and 8 rebounds (went 10 for 10 at the free throw line !!!). Even 18 points and 4 assists by point guard Gaston Whelan (188-94) did not help to save the game for Instituto. Ferro have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Gimnasia. Instituto at the other side keeps the eleventh position with one game lost. Ferro will play against bottom-ranked Atenas (#20) in Cordoba in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Instituto will play on the road against Obras Basket (#9) in Buenos Aires and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Formosa was also quite interesting. Second ranked Boca Juniors (5-1) played at the court of 5th ranked La Union (3-2). Boca Juniors defeated La Union 93-83 on Saturday. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of La Union. The best player for the winners was Jasiel Rivero who scored 27 points and 6 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was Coron Williams who recorded 36 points (!!!). Boca Juniors have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 5-1 record having just one point less than leader San Lorenzo. Loser La Union dropped to the eighth place with two games lost. They share the position with Obras Basket. Boca Juniors will meet at home San Martin Corrientes (#10) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. La Union will play against Argentino in Junin and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Sunchales. It ended with only one-point defeat on the road of 12th ranked Comunicaciones (2-3) to tenth ranked Libertad Sunchales (4-3) 97-96 on Sunday evening. It was a good game for Augusto Alonso who saved his team from a defeat with 18 points, 6 assists and 4 steals. Libertad Sunchales' coach Sebastian Saborido allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Libertad Sunchales moved-up to seventh place. Comunicaciones at the other side dropped to the thirteenth position with three games lost. Libertad Sunchales' next round opponent will be Quilmes MP (#16) in Mar del Plata and are hoping to win another game.
An interesting game took place in Buenos Aires where higher ranked Regatas Corrientes (5-2) was upset on the court of eleventh ranked Obras Basket (3-2) 84-66 on Friday. Jonathan Holton scored 18 points and 8 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Obras Basket moved-up to eighth place, which they share with La Union. Loser Regatas Corrientes dropped to the third position with two games lost. Obras Basket will face Instituto (#11) in Cordoba in the next round. Regatas Corrientes will play at home against Quimsa (#4) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 6: Bahia Basket lost to Gimnasia on the opponent's court 61-79. Hispano Am. unfortunately lost to Regatas C. in a home game 85-103. Penarol was rolled over Olimpico LB on the road 73-92. Quimsa crushed Penarol on its own court 94-68.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 19 points and 4 steals by Courtney Fells of QUIMSA.

Quimsa - Penarol 94-68

Everything went according to plan in Santiado del Estero where fifth ranked Quimsa (4-1) outscored 14th ranked Penarol (2-5) 94-68 on Saturday. Quimsa shot the lights out from three sinking 15 long-distance shots on high 53.6 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 31 assists comparing to just 15 passes made by Penarol's players. American swingman Courtney Fells (197-86, college: NC State) scored 19 points and 4 steals to lead the charge for the winners and international center Roberto Acuna (208-90) chipped in 13 points and 6 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was swingman Lucas Gorosterrazu (195-98) with 15 points and forward Nicolas Lauria (202-88) scored 11 points and 6 rebounds. Four Penarol players scored in double figures. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Quimsa moved-up to fourth place. Loser Penarol dropped to the fifteenth position with five games lost. Quimsa will face higher ranked Regatas Corrientes (#3) on the road in the next round and it may be the game of the week.
