Zilli
There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked Hindu (17-7) in Santa Fe on Wednesday night. Visitors were edged by third ranked Union SF (14-12) 73-70. It was a great evening for power forward Alejandro Zilli (201-82) who led his team to a victory scoring 11 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Power forward Sebastian Uranga (200-89) helped adding 12 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Union SF's coach Juan Siemienczuck used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the losing side the former international Diego Guaita (204-83) responded with 14 points and 9 rebounds. Union SF maintains third place with 14-12 record having just two points less than leader San Isidro. Hindu at the other side still keeps top position with seven games lost. Union SF are looking forward to face Deportivo Norte (#4) in Armstrong in the next round. Hindu will play at home against the league's second-placed Olimpico and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Eighth-ranked Echague (5-19) gave a tough game to third ranked Villa San Martin (14-8) in Parana. The visitors from Resistencia managed to secure only one-point victory 89-88. However their fans expected much easier game. It was an exceptional evening for guard Franco Vieta (190-92) who led the winners and scored 25 points (on 9-of-10 shooting from the field). Elijah Robinson accounted for 16 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. American forward Eric Frederick (203-88, college: Texas Wesleyan) came up with 23 points for Echague in the defeat. Villa San Martin maintains third place with 14-8 record having six points less than leader San Isidro. Echague lost sixth consecutive game. They keep the eighth position with 19 games lost. Villa San Martin will play against Sportivo America (#7) in Rosario in the next round. Echague will play on the road against Deportivo Norte in Armstrong and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in La Plata between Petrolero and Gimnasia LP. Sixth ranked Petrolero (10-13) got a very close victory on the road over 8th ranked Gimnasia LP (8-17). Petrolero managed to escape with a 1-point win 76-75 on Wednesday evening. John-A Thomas fired 14 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Matias Cuello produced 21 points and 8 rebounds for lost side. Gimnasia LP's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Petrolero moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Progreso Roca. Loser Gimnasia LP keeps the eighth position with 17 games lost. Petrolero will meet at home higher ranked Racing Chivilcoy (#3) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Gimnasia LP will play against the league's leader CA Platense (#1) in Florida and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Santa Fe. It ended with only two-point home defeat of their close opponent Union SF (14-12) to third ranked Villa San Martin (14-8) 85-83 in the game for the third place. Worth to mention a great performance of Guillermo Aliende who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 11 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists. Union SF's coach Juan Siemienczuck tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Villa San Martin maintains third place with 14-8 record having six points less than leader San Isidro which they share with defeated Union SF. Union SF at the other side keeps the third position with 12 games lost. Villa San Martin's next round opponent will be Sportivo America (#7) in Rosario. Union SF will play at home against Deportivo Norte (#4) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Important game to mention about took place in General Roca. Third ranked Racing Chivilcoy (14-9) saved a 3-point victory on the road edging 4th placed Progreso (10-13) 89-86 on Thursday evening. It was a great evening for Tyrone OGarro who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 12 points and 16 rebounds. Racing Chivilcoy have an impressive series of five victories in a row. Newly promoted Racing Chivilcoy maintains third place with 14-9 record having five points less than leader San Isidro, which they share with Estudiantes O.
