Victor Liz
There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. 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 crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked Piratas (10-3) in Juana Diaz on Thursday night. Visitors were rolled over by third ranked Leones (7-3) 109-87. The hosts trailed by 3 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 13-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 109-87. Leones made 29-of-35 free shots (82.9 percent) during the game. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. Dominican Victor Liz (193-86) scored 25 points and 7 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and the former international point guard Carlos Arroyo (188-79, college: FIU, agency: Interperformances) chipped in 11 points, 5 rebounds and 12 assists during the contest. The best for the losing side was the former international swingman Alejandro Carmona (194-83) with 14 points and 5 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 have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain third position with 7-3 record having 3 victories less than leader Quebradillas. Piratas at the other side still keep top place with three games lost. Leones are looking forward to face league's second-placed Santeros in Coamo in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Piratas will play on the road against Indios in Mayaguez and are hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Mayaguez. Second ranked Santeros (8-5) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 9th ranked Indios (4-8) 85-83 on Thursday evening. Guest team only slightly avoided a big embarassment. American power forward Joseph Jones (206-86, college: Texas A&M) notched a double-double by scoring 19 points and 19 rebounds to lead the effort and Stedmon Lemon supported him with 15 points. Santeros' coach Carlos Gonzalez allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Even 25 points and 5 assists by the former international guard Jezreel De-Jesus (185-91, agency: Interperformances) did not help to save the game for Indios. Santeros maintains second position with 8-5 record having just two points less than leader Quebradillas. Indios at the other side dropped to the eighth place with eight games lost. Santeros will play against Vaqueros (#7) in Bayamon in the next round where they are favorite. Indios will play at home against the league's leader Piratas and hope to get back on the winning track.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Coamo. Second-best host Santeros (8-5) lost to first ranked Piratas (10-3) 75-70. The best player for the winners was Brian Conklin who had a double-double by scoring 18 points and 12 rebounds. Piratas' coach Eddie Casiano used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the other side the best for losing team was Stedmon Lemon who recorded 19 points and 6 rebounds. Piratas maintains first position with 10-3 record. Loser Santeros keep the second place with five games lost. Piratas will meet Indios (#8) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Santeros will play against Vaqueros (#7) in Bayamon and hope to secure a win.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Quebradillas. First ranked host Piratas (10-3) smashed 3rd ranked Leones (7-3) 100-65. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Leones. It was a good game for Melo Trimble who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 22 points, 10 assists and 4 steals. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Piratas maintains first position with 10-3 record. Leones at the other side keep the third place with three games lost. Piratas' next round opponent will be Indios (#8) in Mayaguez and are hoping to win another game. Leones will play at home against the league's second-placed Santeros (#2) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Indios managed to get a fourth victory on Tuesday night. This time they edged fourth-ranked Capitanes in Mayaguez 94-93. Tyrone Curnell had a double-double by scoring 24 points and 11 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners. Indios (4-8) moved-up to eighth place. Capitanes lost fourth consecutive game. Defending champion keep the fourth position with six games lost. Indios will face league's leader Piratas in Quebradillas in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Capitanes will play at home against Cariduros and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 6: bottom-ranked San German were destroyed by Fajardo on the opponent's court 104-84. Aguada managed to outperform Guayama in a home game 90-73. Fajardo recorded a loss to Ponce on the road 112-107. Guayama defeated San German on its own court 83-79. Arecibo beat Fajardo in a road game 98-94. Fajardo lost to Mayaguez at home 95-101. Bayamon unfortunately lost to San German on the opponent's court 83-93.

Quebradillas - Ponce 100-65

The game between Top Four teams took place in Quebradillas. First ranked host Piratas (10-3) smashed 3rd ranked Leones (7-3) 100-65. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Leones. The game without a history. Piratas led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 58 of its points in the paint compared to Leones' 32. Piratas players were unselfish on offense dishing 31 assists comparing to just 14 passes made by Leones' players. It was a good game for American guard Melo Trimble (190-95, college: Maryland) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 22 points, 10 assists and 4 steals. The former international Michael Rosario (190-90, college: Florida) contributed with 23 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists for the winners. Four Piratas players scored in double figures. The former international swingman Angel-Daniel Vassallo (198-86, college: Virginia Tech) replied with 17 points and 7 rebounds and Jamaican-American power forward Adrian Uter (201-84, college: Hofstra, agency: BeoBasket) added 11 points and 9 rebounds in the effort for Leones. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Piratas maintains first position with 10-3 record. Leones at the other side keep the third place with three games lost. Piratas' next round opponent will be Indios (#8) in Mayaguez and are hoping to win another game. Leones will play at home against the league's second-placed Santeros (#2) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
