Maldonado
The games are now more important than at the beginning of the Regular Season. We may still expect few shocking results in upcoming 6 rounds. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most important game in the last round took place in Comodoro Rivadavia between second ranked Gimnasia (19-12) and eleventh ranked La Union (15-17) on Wednesday night. Gimnasia was defeated by La Union in a tough game at home 76-84. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Gimnasia. Naturalized Spanish guard Jonathan Maldonado (188-90) scored 24 points and 8 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and the former international swingman Alexis Elsener (196-88, agency: Interperformances) chipped in 15 points and 11 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was Dominican center Eloy Vargas (211-88, college: Kentucky, agency: Duran International) with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 13 rebounds. La Union maintains eleventh position with 15-17 record. Gimnasia at the other side dropped to the fifth place with 12 games lost. La Union are looking forward to face higher ranked Instituto (#3) in Cordoba in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Gimnasia will play on the road against Quimsa in Santiado del Estero and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a home loss of third ranked Regatas Corrientes (19-13) against fifth ranked Instituto (19-9) on Friday night. Host Regatas Corrientes was defeated by Instituto in a tough game in Corrientes 82-87. The former international guard Santiago Scala (186-91) notched 27 points (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field) to lead the effort and Rodney Green supported him with 16 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. Even 12 points and 8 rebounds (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field) by international Javier Saiz (205-94) did not help to save the game for Regatas Corrientes. Instituto have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to third place. Regatas Corrientes at the other side dropped to the sixth position with 13 games lost. Instituto will play against San Martin Corrientes (#12) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Regatas Corrientes will have a break next round.
Bottom-ranked Atenas managed to get a ninth victory on Thursday night. This time they won against seventeenth-ranked Libertad Sunchales in Cordoba 97-85. The best player for the winners was Leon Williams who had a double-double by scoring 28 points and 10 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was Martin Cuello who recorded 20 points and 4 assists. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Atenas (9-21) moved-up to seventeenth place, which they share with Quilmes MP. Libertad Sunchales lost third consecutive game. Newly promoted team dropped to the nineteenth position with 22 games lost. They share it with Argentino. Atenas will meet higher ranked Bahia Basket (#15) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Libertad Sunchales will play against Hispano Am. (#14) and hope to secure a win.
La Liga top team - San Lorenzo (25-3) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed thirteenth ranked Olimpico de La Banda (13-18) 91-72. It was a good game for Donald Sims who led his team to a victory with 18 points and 4 assists. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. San Lorenzo have a solid four-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 25-3 record. Olimpico de La Banda lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the thirteenth place with 18 games lost. San Lorenzo's next round opponent will be Hispano Am. (#14) in Rio Gallegos which should be an easy win for them. Olimpico de La Banda will play at home against Gimnasia and hope to win that game.
La Liga top team - San Lorenzo (25-3) added another victory to their record on Saturday. This time they beat ninth ranked Quimsa (16-14) in Santiado del Estero 62-54. Marcos Mata had a double-double by scoring 12 points and 10 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners.
