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 (12-6) in Fajardo on Sunday night. Visitors were defeated by fifth ranked Cariduros (10-8) 84-75. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Piratas. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Piratas won third quarter 25-19. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Cariduros looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. 28 personal fouls committed by Piratas helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American Robert Glenn (203-88, college: IUPUI) orchestrated the victory by scoring 20 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists. Dominican point guard Juan Miguel Suero (198-93) contributed with 14 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists for the winners. American guard Melo Trimble (190-95, college: Maryland) replied with 27 points and 6 assists (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) for Piratas. Piratas' coach rotated twelve players in this game, but that didn't help. Cariduros have an impressive five-game winning streak. They moved-up to third place, which they share with Guayama. Piratas at the other side still keep top position with six games lost. Cariduros is looking forward to face Vaqueros (#8) in Bayamon in the next round where they are favorite. Piratas will play on the road against Indios (#9) in Mayaguez and are hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Coamo. Fourth ranked Leones (9-6) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging second-ranked Santeros (12-8) 112-110 on Wednesday evening. Worth to mention a great performance of American Nick Minnerath (207-88, college: Detroit Mercy) who helped to win the game recording 29 points and 7 rebounds and Carlos Arroyo who added 9 points, 7 rebounds and 15 assists during the contest. The former international swingman John Holland (195-88, college: Boston U.) responded with 24 points. Santeros' coach tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Despite that victory Leones went down to fifth position due to points difference. Santeros at the other side keep the second place with eight games lost. Leones will play against Vaqueros (#8) in Bayamon in the next round. Santeros will play at home against the league's leader Piratas (#1) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a home loss of third ranked Brujos (10-8) against eighth ranked Atleticos (7-12) on Thursday night. Host Brujos were defeated by Atleticos in a tough game in Guayama 70-74. The winners were led by Isaac Sosa-Carrion who scored that evening 32 points and 4 assists. Even 10 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists by Tai Wesley did not help to save the game for Brujos. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Atleticos moved-up to seventh place. Loser Brujos keep the third position with eight games lost. They share it with Fajardo. Atleticos will meet at home higher ranked Cariduros (#4) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Brujos will play against the league's leader Piratas and will have a slim chance for a victory.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Brujos (10-8) against sixth ranked Capitanes (8-12) on Saturday night. Visiting Brujos were defeated by Capitanes in a tough game in Arecibo 101-110. The best player for the winners was Victor Rudd who scored 30 points and 7 assists. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Defending champion maintains sixth position with 8-12 record. Brujos at the other side keep the third place with eight games lost. Capitanes' next round opponent will be bottom-ranked Indios (#9) in Mayaguez. Brujos will play at home against the league's leader Piratas (#1) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An interesting game for Piratas (12-6) which hosted in Quebradillas second-ranked Santeros (12-8). First ranked Piratas managed to get a 13-point victory 94-81. Melo Trimble orchestrated the victory by scoring 28 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. Piratas maintains first position with 12-6 record. Loser Santeros keep the second place with eight games lost. Piratas will face bottom-ranked Indios (#9) in Mayaguez in the next round and are hoping to win another game.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 8: San German were beaten by Aguada on the road 101-85. Ponce won against Bayamon on its own court 105-100. Fajardo managed to outperform Mayaguez in a road game 99-98. San German recorded a loss to Quebradillas at home 97-106. Arecibo was defeated by Bayamon on the opponent's court 95-83. Ponce was beaten by Mayaguez in a home game 82-92. Arecibo lost to Fajardo on the road 92-96. Bottom-ranked Mayaguez unfortunately lost to Aguada on its own court 87-93.
The most impressive performance of 8th round was 23 points and 7 rebounds by Justin Reyes of Mayaguez.

Santeros shot the lights out from three sinking 14 long-distance shots on high 53.8 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 28 assists. The former international point guard Alexander Abreu (180-91, college: W.Georgia) orchestrated the victory by scoring 13 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists. American power forward Joseph Jones (206-86, college: Texas A&M) contributed with a double-double by scoring 11 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Five Santeros players scored in double figures. American forward Eugene Phelps (198-90, college: LBSU) replied with 16 points and 9 rebounds and the former international guard Isaac Sosa-Carrion (190-90, college: Canisius) added 17 points and 4 assists in the effort for Atleticos. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. Santeros maintains second position with 12-8 record having just two point less than leader Quebradillas. Loser Atleticos dropped to the seventh place with 12 games lost. Santeros will face league's leader Piratas in Quebradillas in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Atleticos will play at home against Cariduros (#4) and hope to win that game.

Ponce - Bayamon 105-100

Very expected game when 8th ranked Vaqueros (6-9) lost to fourth ranked Leones (9-6) in Juana Diaz 100-105 on Sunday. However just five-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. Vaqueros were tied after three quarters but could not keep up in the last quarter eventually losing the game.

Bayamon - Arecibo 95-83

There was a small surprise when eighth ranked Vaqueros (6-9) defeated 6th ranked Capitanes (8-12) in Bayamon 95-83 on Tuesday. The game was mostly controlled by Vaqueros.

Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Atleticos made 7 blocks. The winners were led by the former international guard Isaac Sosa-Carrion (190-90, college: Canisius) who scored that evening 32 points and 4 assists and American forward Onzie Branch (198-91, college: Gardner-Webb) supported him with 13 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists. Even 10 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists by American-Guamanian forward Tai Wesley (201-86, college: Utah St.) did not help to save the game for Brujos. American power forward David Laury (206-90, college: Iona) added 13 points and 5 rebounds for the hosts. Four Brujos players scored in double figures. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Atleticos moved-up to seventh place. Loser Brujos keep the third position with eight games lost. They share it with Fajardo. Atleticos will meet at home higher ranked Cariduros (#4) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Brujos will play against the league's leader Piratas and will have a slim chance for a victory.
