Williams
There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with change at the leadership position and favorites losing the games. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

There was a change at the Libobasque leadership position after last games. Round 9 most important game was a defeat of league's leader CAN Oruro (5-2). They were crushed by fifth ranked Amistad (4-3) 108-77 on Friday night. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of CAN Oruro. They outrebounded CAN Oruro 54-35 including a 21-8 advantage in offensive rebounds. Nigerian-American guard George Williams (198-90, college: Wayland Baptist) stepped up and scored 39 points (!!!) and 8 rebounds for the winners and American forward Tirrell Brown (198-93, college: Ouachita Baptist) chipped in 25 points and 16 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field). The best for the losing side was Argentinian Agustin Ambrosino (203-90, college: BYU) with 29 points and 9 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Amistad moved-up to third place, which they share with Carl A-Z. CAN Oruro at the other side dropped to the second position with two games lost. They were replaced at the leadership position by Calero. CAN Oruro will play next round against Vikingos trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Amistad will try to continue on its current victory against fifth ranked La Salle CBBA in Cochabamba.
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Calero as it allowed them to take a leadership position after previous leader's (CAN Oruro) loss. Calero defeated 4th placed La Salle CBBA in Potosi 89-74. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of La Salle CBBA. American swingman Mike Liabo (198-91, college: Tenn-Martin, agency: Interperformances) nailed 20 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals for the winning side and Cristhian Camargo accounted for 15 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists. Uruguayan forward Miguel Barriola (191-90) came up with 20 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists for La Salle CBBA in the defeat. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. As mentioned above they took over a top position. La Salle CBBA at the other side dropped to the fifth place with four games lost. La Salle CBBA will play next round against strong Amistad trying to get back on the winning streak. Calero will try to continue on its current victory against fourth ranked Carl A-Z at Oruro.
Undefeated La Salle Tarija (8-1) recorded its first loss on the court of second ranked Rubair on Friday night. Visitors were rolled over by Rubair 96-66. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. The best player for the winners was Gregory Curvelo who scored 24 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was Scott Sill who recorded 13 points and 9 rebounds. 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. Newly promoted Rubair maintains second place with 5-4 record despite having the same number of points like the leader Calero. Loser La Salle Tarija still keeps top position with one game lost.
A very interesting game took place in Quillacollo. It ended with only one-point home defeat of 4th placed Penarol (2-6) to fifth ranked Univ. Santa Cruz (3-6) 90-89 in the fight for the fourth place. It was a good game for Duane James who saved his team from a defeat with a double-double by scoring 29 points and 17 rebounds. Univ. Santa Cruz moved-up to fourth place. Penarol lost fifth consecutive game. They dropped to the fifth position with six games lost.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Tarija. First ranked host La Salle Tarija (8-1) defeated 3rd placed Pichincha (4-5) 78-65. Michael Flores stepped up and scored 34 points (!!!) for the winners. La Salle Tarija's coach Henry Paruta used a ten-player rotation and allowed the starting five to get some rest. La Salle Tarija maintains first place with 8-1 record. Loser Pichincha keeps the third position with five games lost.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 9: AND1 La Paz lost to Pichincha on the opponent's court 75-91. AND1 La Paz unfortunately lost to Carl A-Z in a home game 84-97. Carl A-Z was rolled over Vikingos on the road 58-84.
