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

The most exciting game of round 7 in the LUB took place in Montevideo. This derby game ended with only one-point defeat on the road of 5th ranked Goes (4-3) to eighth ranked Hebraica (4-2) 83-82 on Tuesday evening. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Goes. Hebraica made 29-of-36 free shots (80.6 percent) during the game, while Goes only scored thirteen points from the stripe. 26 personal fouls committed by Goes helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Forward Gaston Semiglia (191-91) fired 23 points and 4 assists for the winners. Forward Federico Haller (198-88) chipped in 21 points. Guard Fernando Martinez (170-79, agency: Pro Sports) produced 27 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists for lost side. Hebraica moved-up to third place, which they share with Aguada and Nacional. Goes at the other side dropped to the sixth position with three games lost. They share it with Olimpia and Urunday Univ..
Another exciting game was a derby match between two teams from Montevideo: Aguada (#6) and Nacional (#2). Nacional was defeated at home 70-77 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Dwayne Davis (196-89, college: S.Mississippi, agency: Interperformances) who helped to win the game recording 21 points and 5 assists. Andrew Feeley contributed with 17 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Naturalized Spanish center Esteban Batista (208-83, agency: Duran International) answered with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 16 rebounds for Nacional. Aguada (4-2) moved-up to third place, which they share with Hebraica and Nacional.
Leader Defensor delivered the sixth victory on Monday night. This time they crushed bottom-ranked Sayago (0-7) 107-85 in Montevideo. The game was dominated by American players. It was a great evening for Corin Henry who led his team to a victory scoring 15 points and 7 assists. At the losing side Kamerom Williams responded with 32 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Defensor have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain first place with 6-1 record. Newly promoted Sayago still closes the standings with seven games lost.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Montevideo. Local Urunday Univ. (4-3) outscored 12th ranked Verdirrojo (1-4) 107-66. It was a quality performance for Quinnel Brown who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 24 points and 10 rebounds. 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. Urunday Univ. moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Olimpia and Goes. Verdirrojo lost third consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the twelfth position with four games lost.
Another exciting game was again a derby between two local teams from Montevideo: Malvin (#4) and Bigua (#9). Bigua was defeated at home 63-71 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Bigua. Hatila Passos fired a double-double by scoring 11 points and 22 rebounds for the winners. Malvin have a solid series of four victories in a row. Defending champion (5-2) moved-up to second place. Loser Bigua keeps the ninth position with four games lost.

Other games of round 7 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Goes crushed Welcome in Montevideo 93-67. Atenas was beaten by Olimpia at home 77-89. Welcome were destroyed by Trouville on the opponent's court 83-61.
The best stats of 7th round was 22 points by Nate Frye of Welcome.

They shot the lights out from three nailing 15 long-distance shots on high 53.6 percentage. Urunday Univ. players were unselfish on offense dishing 23 assists. It was a quality performance for American Quinnel Brown (198-83, college: Auburn) who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 24 points and 10 rebounds. His fellow American import power forward Chaz Crawford (207-84, college: Drexel) accounted for 19 points and 6 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field) for the winning side. Five Urunday Univ. players scored in double figures.

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. Urunday Univ. moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Olimpia and Goes. Verdirrojo lost third consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the twelfth position with four games lost.
