Phelps
There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Santeros (18-11) in San German on Sunday night. Visitors were defeated by seventh ranked Atleticos (12-15) 104-100. The hosts trailed by 8 points at the halftime before their 33-20 charge in the third quarter, which allowed them to win the game. Atleticos looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. 25 personal fouls committed by Santeros helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Eugene Phelps (198-90, college: LBSU) who helped to win the game recording 21 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists and the former international guard Guillermo Diaz (188-85, college: Miami, FL) who added 15 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists during the contest. The best for the losing side was the former international swingman John Holland (195-88, college: Boston U.) with 21 points and 5 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Atleticos maintains seventh position with 12-15 record. Santeros at the other side still keep top place with 11 games lost. Atleticos are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Indios (#9) in Mayaguez in the next round. Santeros will play at home against the league's second-placed Piratas (#2) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
Important game to mention about took place in Arecibo. Third ranked Capitanes (16-14) saved a 1-point victory at home edging top-ranked Santeros (18-11) 78-77 on Thursday evening. The winners were led by the former international swingman David Huertas (195-87, college: Ole Miss) who scored that evening 28 points and 4 assists and Jeleel Akindele supported him with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Even 13 points by the former international swingman John Holland (195-88, college: Boston U.) did not help to save the game for Santeros. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. Defending champion maintains third position with 16-14 record having just one point less than leader Aguada. Santeros at the other side still keep top place with 11 games lost. Capitanes will play against Vaqueros (#6) in Bayamon in the next round. Santeros will play at home against the league's second-placed Piratas (#2) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
A very close game took place in Fajardo between Santeros and Cariduros. First ranked Santeros (18-11) got a very close victory on the road over 5th ranked Cariduros (14-16). Santeros managed to escape with a 1-point win 113-112 on Saturday evening. The best player for the winners was Jonathan Rodriguez who scored 20 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was Derek Reese who recorded 33 points (!!!) and 7 rebounds. Both coaches allowed to play bench players in such tough game.

Santeros will meet at home league's second-placed Piratas in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Cariduros will play against Atleticos and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Capitanes (16-14) against sixth ranked Vaqueros (13-13) on Tuesday night. Visiting Capitanes were defeated by Vaqueros in Bayamon 85-75. It was a good game for Greg Smith who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 16 points, 18 rebounds and 4 assists. Vaqueros maintains sixth position with 13-13 record. Defending champion Capitanes keep the third place with 14 games lost. Vaqueros' next round opponent will be again higher ranked Capitanes (#3) in Arecibo and it may be quite challenging game. Capitanes will play at home against the league's second-placed Piratas and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a home loss of second ranked Piratas (16-12) against ninth ranked Indios (11-17) on Tuesday night. Host Piratas were crushed by Indios in Quebradillas 108-87. Worth to mention a great performance of Brian Conklin who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 30 points, 19 rebounds and 7 assists. Piratas' coach gave up on the game allowing to play eleven players seeing no chance for a win. Indios have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain ninth position with 11-17 record. Piratas lost third consecutive game. They keep the second place with 12 games lost. Indios will face higher ranked Atleticos (#7) in San German in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Piratas will play on the road against the league's leader Santeros (#1) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
