Melo Trimble
There were only 2 rounds played so far and it's still very beginning of the Regular Season in BSN. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Indios (1-1) in Quebradillas on Thursday night. Visitors were defeated by Piratas (2-0) 101-89. Piratas shot the lights out from three sinking 12 long-distance shots on high 52.2 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 28 assists. American players dominated the game. Guard Melo Trimble (190-95, college: Maryland) orchestrated the victory by scoring 16 points and 6 assists. Forward Brian Conklin (201-89, college: St.Louis) contributed with 19 points (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) for the winners. Piratas' coach Eddie Casiano used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Forward Brice Johnson (206-94, college: N.Carolina) replied with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 14 rebounds for Indios. Piratas is looking forward to face Atleticos (#9) in San German in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Indios will play at home against Brujos (#8) and are hoping to prove to their fans that the loss was just an accident.
Important game to mention about took place in Coamo. Santeros (1-1) saved a 1-point victory at home edging Capitanes (3-1) 82-81 on Tuesday evening. The former international point guard Filiberto Rivera (189-82, college: UTEP) scored 16 points and 5 assists to lead the charge for the winners and Gilberto Clavell chipped in 16 points during the contest. American forward Victor Rudd (205-91, college: S.Florida) responded with 18 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Santeros will play against Vaqueros (#7) in Bayamon in the next round. Capitanes will play at home against Atleticos (#9) and hope to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in San German between Capitanes and Atleticos. Capitanes (3-1) got a very close victory on the road over Atleticos (0-3). Capitanes managed to escape with a 1-point win 92-91 on Saturday evening. Guest team only slightly avoided a big embarassment. Victor Rudd notched a double-double by scoring 40 points (!!!) and 10 rebounds to lead the effort. Even 28 points and 8 rebounds by Chane Behanan did not help to save the game for Atleticos. Atleticos' coach tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Capitanes will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Atleticos will play against Piratas (#3) in Quebradillas and hope to win that game.
A very interesting game took place in Fajardo. It ended with only two-point defeat on the road of Brujos (0-2) to Cariduros (2-0) 95-93 on Friday evening. Host team only slightly avoided a big embarassment. The best player for the winners was Gerardo Suero who scored 28 points and 4 assists. Cariduros' coach Felix Rivera allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Cariduros' next round opponent will be Leones (#6) in Juana Diaz. Brujos will play on the road against Indios in Mayaguez and hope to win that game.
The game between Leones (1-1) and Atleticos (0-3) in Juana Diaz on Thursday ended with biggest points difference. Leones outscored guests from San German 98-62. Victor Liz orchestrated the victory by scoring 16 points and 6 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. Leones will face Cariduros in Fajardo in the next round and it may be the game of the week. Atleticos will play on the road against Piratas (#3) in Quebradillas and hope to win that game.
