Germain
Jordan
The round was exceptionally exciting as five games ended with a tiny margin. There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

Let's start with guest Halcones de Ciudad Obregon's (11-9) road victory over Venados (#6) 107-102 on Tuesday evening. Halcones de Ciudad Obregon had a 18-6 advantage in offensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. American power forward Germain Jordan (198-86, college: Dillard) fired 34 points (!!!) and 8 rebounds for the winners. The other American import forward Timajh Parker-Rivera (202-94, college: Towson) chipped in 10 points, 20 rebounds and 6 assists. American center Nick Waddell (200-89, college: Grand Valley St.) produced 24 points and 8 rebounds for lost side. Venados' coach Eric Weissling rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Halcones de Ciudad Obregon moved-up to third place, which they share with Tijuana. Venados at the other side keep the sixth position with ten games lost. They share it with La Paz. Halcones de Ciudad Obregon is looking forward to face Gigantes (#5) in Guadalajara in the next round. Venados will play at home against the league's leader Rayos de Hermosillo and are hoping to prove to their fans that this time they can win.
Important game to mention about took place in La Paz. Fifth ranked Mantarrayas (10-10) saved a 1-point victory at home edging 3rd ranked Tijuana Zonkeys (11-9) 78-77 on Saturday evening. Worth to mention a great performance of American-Dominican Antonio Pena (204-86, college: Villanova) who helped to win the game recording 22 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Michaell Jackson contributed with 14 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Naturalized American guard Karim Scott (196-88) replied with 26 points and 7 rebounds for Tijuana Zonkeys. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Despite that victory Mantarrayas went down to sixth position due to points difference, which they share with Venados. Defending champion Tijuana Zonkeys keep the third place with nine games lost. They share the position with Obregon. Mantarrayas will play against league's second-placed Caballeros de Culiacan on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Tijuana Zonkeys will play against Ostioneros de Guaymas and hope to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Guadalajara between Tijuana Zonkeys and Gigantes. Third ranked Tijuana Zonkeys (11-9) got a very close victory on the road over 7th ranked Gigantes (10-9). Tijuana Zonkeys managed to escape with a 3-point win 111-108 on Tuesday evening. Karim Scott scored 21 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists to lead the charge for the winners. At the losing side Jordan Williams responded with 37 points (!!!) and 4 assists. Defending champion maintains third position with 11-9 record having just two points less than leader Hermosillo, which they share with Obregon. Newly promoted Gigantes dropped to the fifth place with nine games lost. Tijuana Zonkeys will meet at home bottom-ranked Ostioneros de Guaymas (#9) in the next round where they are favorite. Gigantes will play against Halcones de Ciudad Obregon (#4) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
A very interesting game took place in Mazatlan. It ended with only three-point defeat on the road of 4th ranked Halcones de Ciudad Obregon (11-9) to sixth ranked Venados (10-10) 75-72 on Wednesday evening. Akeem Scott notched 19 points, 7 rebounds, 8 assists and 6 steals (made all of his eight free throws) to lead the effort. Venados maintains sixth position with 10-10 record, which they share with La Paz. Halcones de Ciudad Obregon at the other side dropped to the third place with nine games lost. Venados' next round opponent will be league's leader Rayos de Hermosillo at home and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Halcones de Ciudad Obregon will play against Gigantes and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Important game to mention about took place in Los Mochis. Eighth ranked Pioneros Los Mochis (7-12) saved a 3-point victory at home edging 5th ranked Mantarrayas (10-10) 94-91 on Wednesday evening. Jeff Early fired 28 points for the winners. Pioneros Los Mochis have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain eighth position with 7-12 record. Mantarrayas lost third consecutive game. Newly promoted team dropped to the sixth place with ten games lost. Pioneros Los Mochis will face bottom-ranked Ostioneros de Guaymas (#9) on the road in the next round.

Rest of the games of round 10 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Jalisco were defeated by Los Mochis in a road game 114-111. Venados was beaten by Culiacan at home 88-97. Obregon were destroyed by Hermosillo on the opponent's court 86-67. Los Mochis managed to outperform La Paz in a home game 97-92. Hermosillo managed to beat Guaymas on the road 85-74. Jalisco crushed Tijuana on its own court 69-47. Bottom-ranked Guaymas was beaten by Hermosillo in a road game 79-71. Jalisco won against Tijuana at home 79-74. La Paz unfortunately lost to Los Mochis on the opponent's court 79-89.



Los Mochis - Jalisco 114-111

We cannot really consider it an upset in the game between close teams when 7th ranked Gigantes (10-9) were edged on the road by eighth ranked Pioneros Los Mochis (7-12) 114-111 on Saturday. Gigantes were plagued by 24 personal fouls down the stretch. American guard Anthony Glover-Jr (185-96, college: Indiana, PA) fired 28 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists for the winners. The other American import power forward John Mitchell (208-91, college: Virginia Union) chipped in a double-double by scoring 28 points and 11 rebounds (on 13-of-16 shooting from the field). Worth to mention Glover Jr. played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped get the job in pro basketball. American guard Jordan Williams (198-92, college: N.Texas) produced 33 points (!!!) and 5 rebounds (made all of his eight free throws) and the former international power forward Arim Solares (202-83) added 19 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists respectively for lost side. Both teams had five players each who scored in double figures. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. Pioneros Los Mochis have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain eighth position with 7-12 record. Newly promoted Gigantes dropped to the fifth place with nine games lost. Pioneros Los Mochis will face bottom-ranked Ostioneros de Guaymas (#9) on the road in the next round.
