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



Culiacan - Los Mochis 109-62

Rather expected game when 8th ranked Pioneros Los Mochis (13-14) were crushed on the road by sixth ranked Caballeros de Culiacan (13-15) 109-62 on Friday. Caballeros de Culiacan made 17-of-20 free shots (85.0 percent) during the game. Caballeros de Culiacan outrebounded Pioneros Los Mochis 43-27 including a 33-20 advantage in defensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists comparing to just 6 passes made by Pioneros Los Mochis' players. Americans were the main players on the court. Forward Sammy Yeager (193-89, college: CS Fullerton) stepped up and scored 20 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists for the winners and point guard Jeffery Stubbs (189-91, college: Jackson St.) chipped in 25 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists (on 10-of-12 shooting from the field). Five Caballeros de Culiacan players scored in double figures. At the losing side guard Jeff Early (190-88, college: SIU) responded with 16 points and guard Anthony Glover-Jr (185-96, college: Indiana, PA) scored 13 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Despite that victory Caballeros de Culiacan went down to seventh position due to points difference. Loser Pioneros Los Mochis dropped to the fifth place with 14 games lost. Caballeros de Culiacan will face higher ranked Tijuana Zonkeys (#3) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Pioneros Los Mochis will play against Venados in Mazatlan and hope to win that game.
Top scorers:
Los Mochis: J.Early 16+2reb+3ast, A.Glover Jr. 13+4reb, R.Alejandro 12+4reb, M.Hernandez 9+1reb+1ast, B.Juan 7+5reb, J.Mitchell 3+6reb

Venados - Guaymas 101-99

Rather predictable result in Mazatlan where seventh ranked Venados (13-17) edged bottom-ranked Ostioneros de Guaymas (11-19) 101-99 on Friday. Venados made 17-of-22 free shots (77.3 percent) during the game. American forward Carl Hall (202-89, college: Wichita St.) stepped up and scored 20 points and 6 rebounds for the winners and his fellow American import swingman Devin Sweetney (198-87, college: St.Francis, PA) chipped in 22 points and 5 rebounds. At the losing side American guard Hameed Ali (188-93, college: Texas A&M-CC) responded with a double-double by scoring 24 points, 7 rebounds and 10 assists and the former international power forward Fernando Benitez (204-89) produced a double-double by scoring 12 points and 10 rebounds (on 10-of-12 shooting from the field) (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field). Five Venados and four Ostioneros de Guaymas players scored in double figures. Both coaches allowed to play bench players in such tough game. Despite that victory Venados went down to eighth position due to points difference. Loser Ostioneros de Guaymas stay at the bottom place with 19 games lost. Venados will face higher ranked Pioneros Los Mochis (#5) at home in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Ostioneros de Guaymas will play against the league's second-placed Halcones de Ciudad Obregon (#2) having rather not much hope for a victory.

La Paz - Obregon 107-106

The most exciting game of round 13 in the CIBACOPA took place in La Paz.

Both teams had five players each who scored in double figures. Mantarrayas moved-up to fourth place. Halcones de Ciudad Obregon at the other side keeps the second position with 12 games lost.
