Diego Romero
There were many interesting games last 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.

Top ranked San Lorenzo (22-3) recorded its third loss in Comodoro Rivadavia on Thursday night. Visitors were rolled over by fifth ranked Gimnasia (18-11) 91-71. Center Diego Romero (206-82, college: FSU) fired 14 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners. American-Venezuelan swingman Dwight Lewis (197-87, college: USC) chipped in 21 points. American guard Donald Sims (185-87, college: Appalachian St., agency: Pensack Sports) produced 14 points for lost side. Gimnasia moved-up to fourth place. Defending champion San Lorenzo still keeps top position with three games lost. Gimnasia are looking forward to face Olimpico de La Banda (#13) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. San Lorenzo will play against La Union (#12) and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Ferro (18-12) against fourteenth ranked Hispano Am. (11-15) on Wednesday night. Visiting Ferro was defeated by Hispano Am. in Rio Gallegos 90-73. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Ferro. Worth to mention a great performance of American power forward Devon Scott (206-94, college: Philander Smith) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 16 points and 10 rebounds. Fernando Podesta contributed with 22 points and 5 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) for the winners. American power forward Charles Mitchell (203-93, college: Georgia Tech, agency: Slash Sports) replied with 21 points and 7 rebounds for Ferro. Hispano Am. maintains fourteenth position with 11-15 record. Ferro at the other side dropped to the fifth place with 12 games lost. Hispano Am. will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Ferro will play on the road against the league's second-placed Regatas Corrientes (#2) having rather not much hope for a victory.
Bottom-ranked Atenas managed to get a eighth victory on Thursday night. This time they won against twelfth-ranked San Martin Corrientes 96-91. Worth to mention a great performance of Walter Herrmann who helped to win the game recording 28 points. Atenas' coach Nicolas Casalanguida used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the losing side Lucas Faggiano responded with 24 points and 7 assists. Atenas (8-20) moved-up to nineteenth place. Loser San Martin Corrientes dropped to the eleventh position with 15 games lost. They share it with La Union. Atenas will meet at home higher ranked Penarol (#16) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. San Martin Corrientes will have a break next round.
Leader San Lorenzo delivered the twenty second victory. This time they crushed 11th ranked Olimpico de La Banda (13-16) 102-74 in Almagra. The winners were led by Marcos Mata who scored that evening 10 points and 6 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Defending champion maintains first position with 22-3 record. Olimpico de La Banda at the other side dropped to the thirteenth place with 16 games lost. San Lorenzo's next round opponent will be La Union (#12) in Formosa which should be another easy win for them. Olimpico de La Banda will play on the road against Gimnasia in Comodoro Rivadavia and hope to win that game.
Important game to mention about took place in Sunchales. Sixteenth ranked Penarol (9-20) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 17th ranked Libertad Sunchales (9-20) 81-79 in the fight for the sixteenth place. Juan-Pablo Vaulet fired 14 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Penarol's coach Leonardo Gutierrez allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Penarol maintains sixteenth position with 9-20 record, which they share with Libertad S. and Quilmes MP. Penarol will face higher ranked Instituto (#6) in Cordoba in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.

Rest of the games of round 28 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Quimsa was defeated by Boca Jrs in Buenos Aires 94-85. Boca Jrs was beaten by La Union at home 84-90. Quilmes MP was destroyed by Estudiantes C. on the opponent's court 99-75. Hispano Am. unfortunately lost to Quimsa in a home game 79-82. Bahia Basket recorded a loss to La Union on the road 78-88. Libertad S. defeated Quilmes MP on its own court 92-84. Olimpico LB was beaten by Obras Basket in Buenos Aires 76-71. Regatas C. won against Bahia Basket at home 74-56. Bahia Basket was outscored by San Martin C. on the opponent's court 66-40.
The best stats of 28th round was 16 points by Michael Hicks of San Martin C..

Boca Jrs - La Union 84-90

There was a small surprise in Buenos Aires where thirteenth ranked La Union (14-15) defeated 10th ranked Boca Juniors (14-14) 90-84 on Saturday. La Union made 18-of-22 free shots (81.8 percent) during the game. Naturalized Spanish guard Jonathan Maldonado (188-90) fired 21 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists for the winners.

La Union moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with San Martin C. Loser Boca Juniors keeps the tenth position with 14 games lost. La Union will face league's leader San Lorenzo in Almagra in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.

The winners were led by the former international Marcos Mata (201-86) who scored that evening 10 points and 6 assists and American center Jerome Meyinsse (207-88, college: Virginia) supported him with 14 points. Even 15 points by Dominican guard Gelvis Solano (185-94, college: Merrimack) did not help to save the game for Olimpico de La Banda. Alejandro Diez (201-87) added 12 points and 5 rebounds for lost side. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Defending champion maintains first position with 22-3 record.

Estudiantes C. - Quilmes MP 99-75

Very expected game in Concordia where 17th ranked Quilmes MP (9-20) was rolled over by eighth ranked Estudiantes C. (16-13) 99-75 on Friday. Estudiantes C. made 22-of-29 free shots (75.9 percent) during the game. Quilmes MP was plagued by 24 personal fouls down the stretch.
