(20-16) (15-24) (19-18) (18-22)


Gzira Athleta secured their third position in the table after beating Bupa Luxol 80-72.

The lead changed hands several times especially in the first minutes of the game with triples for Luxol by Jean Paul Bonnici and CJ Cordina as Lee Fisher (198-F-89, college: Chicago St.) and Michael Naudi replied for Athleta. In the second period, Athleta had a positive moment with a 12-2 run with a Roderick Vella trey and more points by Fisher and Naudi. Marco Mercieca and Fason with a triple replied for Luxol however Athleta were ahead 40-35 at halftime. After the break Luxol twice were on equal terms after another Bonnici triple. Athleta replied strongly as they had another 14-4 run with Fisher increasing his points. Luxol got nearer once more as Cordina and JP Schembri both netted triples for a 58-54 score. Athleta opened the last quarter with an 8-2 run however Luxol's final effort with Fason out saw them leveling the score once more 72-72. Miguel Gauchi Montaldo gave the lead to Athleta once more as they increased their advantage with Naudi's free-shots to win the game 80-72.

(33-14) (27-14) (27-27) (22-14)


Champions Falken Cynergi Virtus registered another century score this time against Pavi Depiro 109-69 as they are preparing to defend their title in the play-offs in a couple of weeks time. They still need to face Floriana Cafe Del Mar next week to ensure their top place of the table to avoid Athleta in the semi-finals. Virtus began with an 8-2 run and although Depiro replied, champions hit with a strong 20-4 run with several triples from Jacob Formosa, Chris Santo (196-F, college: St.Anselm) and Peter Shoults to end the first quarter ahead 33-14. In the second period there was another strong start by Virtus with a 14-2 run with a Robert Bonnici trey and points by Santo and Alec Felice Pace. They opened a 30 point lead and went further ahead with more triples from Shawn Pace and Shoults and at the interval they were leading 60-28. After the break there was a good reaction from Depiro who opened the session with a 12-0 run as they played aggressive defense and forced champions into some turnovers. However it was only a matter of time for Virtus shooters to start netting several treys especially Pace who had three and another one from Bugeja and Virtus were 87-55 in front. In the last quarter, Virtus opened with another 8-0 run with Formosa and Santo sharing the points equally. Kurt Xuereb (175-PG-97) and Andrew Aquilina replied for Depiro however champions passed the century mark with a Bonnici triple.

Hibernians 75
Floriana Cafe Del Mar 86
(17-14) (26-23) (21-23) (11-26)


Hibs offered a tough resistance to Floriana Cafe Del Mar and it was only in the last session that Floriana could finally obtain an advantage to obtain the victory. Floriana who had Lee Ross missing for this game opened the game with the first six points. There was a reaction from Hibs who were without Stefan Vella and Fabrizio Mariani as they made up an 11-2 run with treys from Kieron Caruana and Ryan Carabott (180-SG-96) as they closed the quarter in front 17-14. In the start of the second session Hibs increased their lead with points by Marco Matijevic and Simon Attard. Floriana replied mainly from Chad Patus (203-F-87, college: Belm.Abbey) together with Clayton Calleja and Abraham Portelli. Attard netted a couple of triples for Hibs as they held on to their lead and despite a trey by Patus, Hibs were in front at half time 43-37. After the interval, Floriana couldn't find a way to take an advantage since Hibs kept replying well with their points as Attard netted another couple of treys together with points from Caruana and Matijevic to open a maximum 15 point lead 64-49. Floriana finally recovered as they went for an 11-0 run of their own with a Nikola Vasovic triple and points from Patus to reduce the gap 64-60. Floriana kept their momentum in the start of the last quarter as they made up another 12-1 run and finally went back in the lead 72-65. Hibs reacted and another Attard triple and points by Matijevic drew them just 4 points behind 75-79.
