Greg Smith
The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Piratas (8-2) in Bayamon on Tuesday night. Visitors were rolled over by seventh ranked Vaqueros (4-5) 99-80. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Piratas. The hosts trailed by 1 point at the halftime before their 60-40 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Vaqueros made 19-of-23 free shots (82.6 percent) during the game. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. American center Greg Smith (208-91, college: Fresno St.) orchestrated the victory by scoring 24 points and 9 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). Forward Benito Santiago (198-89, college: Cumberlands) contributed with 31 points (was perfect 11-for-11 from the free throw line !!!) for the winners. American guard Melo Trimble (190-95, college: Maryland) answered with 17 points and 6 assists for Piratas. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Vaqueros moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Fajardo. Piratas at the other side still keep top position with two games lost. Vaqueros is looking forward to face Atleticos (#8) in San German in the next round. Piratas will play on the road against Leones (#4) in Juana Diaz and are hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Guayama. Fifth ranked Brujos (5-5) saved a 3-point victory at home edging their close opponent Cariduros (4-5) 91-88 in the fight for the fifth place. American-Guamanian forward Tai Wesley (201-86, college: Utah St.) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 12 rebounds for the winners and Javier Gonzalez chipped in 21 points and 7 rebounds. American-Dominican guard Gerardo Suero (196-89, college: Albany) responded with 23 points and 5 rebounds. Cariduros' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Brujos have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain fifth place with 5-5 record. Cariduros lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the sixth position with five games lost. They share it with Bayamon. Brujos will play against league's second-placed Santeros in Coamo in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

Very important is a road loss of third ranked Capitanes (6-5) against fourth ranked Leones (5-2) on Sunday night. Visiting Capitanes were crushed by Leones in Juana Diaz 110-86. Victor Liz nailed 21 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists for the winning side. Denis Clemente came up with 16 points for Capitanes in the defeat. 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 maintains fourth place with 5-2 record.
