The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

Top ranked Piratas (10-5) recorded its fifth loss in Quebradillas on Thursday night. Hosts were defeated by third ranked Brujos (10-6) 90-77. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. The guests trailed by 6 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 12-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 90-77. Brujos outrebounded Piratas 45-31 including 30 on the defensive glass. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. American-Guamanian forward Tai Wesley (201-86, college: Utah St.) fired 19 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Forward Jose-Glen Rodriguez (201-92) chipped in 16 points and 7 rebounds (perfect behind the arc making all five shots). American forward Brian Conklin (201-89, college: St.Louis) produced a double-double by scoring 17 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists for lost side. Piratas' coach rotated twelve players in this game, but that didn't help. Brujos have an impressive series of five victories in a row. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Aguada. Piratas at the other side still keep top position with five games lost. Brujos is looking forward to face Capitanes (#6) in Arecibo in the next round. Piratas will play at home against Santeros (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Santeros (10-6) against eighth ranked Vaqueros (5-8) on Friday night. Visiting Santeros were defeated by Vaqueros in Bayamon 93-77. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Santeros.

Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Vaqueros maintains eighth place with 5-8 record.

Vaqueros will play against higher ranked Capitanes (#6) in Arecibo in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Santeros will play on the road against Indios (#9) in Mayaguez and hope to get back on the winning track.
Very important is a road loss of first ranked Piratas (10-5) against ninth ranked Indios (5-9) on Saturday night. Visiting Piratas were defeated by Indios in Mayaguez 90-75. It was a great evening for Brian Conklin who led his team to a victory scoring 15 points and 6 rebounds. At the losing side Michael Rosario responded with 23 points and 7 assists.

An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Juana Diaz. Second ranked Santeros faced 4th placed Leones. Guests from Coamo (10-6) defeated host Leones (7-5) 95-81.

Eugene Phelps fired a double-double by scoring 22 points, 14 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners.
