There was an upset when 4th placed Leones (13-11) lost to eighth ranked Atleticos (11-13) in San German 80-96 on Friday. The hosts trailed by 7 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 2-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 96-80.

Quebradillas - Arecibo 86-89

Important game to mention about took place in Quebradillas. Third ranked Capitanes (15-13) saved a 3-point victory on the road edging second-ranked Piratas (15-11) 89-86 on Saturday evening. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 25-18. But Piratas won second period 29-25. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Capitanes players were unselfish on offense dishing 23 assists. It was a great evening for the former international guard Jezreel De Jesus (185-91, agency: Interperformances) who led his team to a victory scoring 20 points and 6 rebounds. The former international swingman David Huertas (195-87, college: Ole Miss) helped adding 15 points. Four Capitanes players scored in double figures. American guard Melo Trimble (190-95, college: Maryland) responded with 31 points and the other American import forward Reyshawn Terry (203-84, college: UNC) scored 16 points and 7 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Defending champion maintains third place with 15-13 record behind leader Aguada. Piratas at the other side keep the second position with 11 games lost. Capitanes will play against league's leader Santeros in Coamo in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week.

Aguada - Mayaguez 94-75

Very expected game when 9th ranked Indios (8-17) were smashed by first ranked Santeros (16-9) in Coamo 94-75 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Santeros. Indios was better in fourth quarter 27-13. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Santeros looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. American power forward Joseph Jones (206-86, college: Texas A&M) orchestrated the victory by scoring 20 points (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field).
