Floriana MCP Car Parks 83
Gira Athleta 67
(15-17) (14-13) (36-11) (18-26)

The game was quite balanced till the interval with Athleta leading by one point. However a strong run in the third quarter gave Floriana a 24 point lead which however was neutralized by Athleta in the first minutes of the last session. It was the fifth encounter between the two sides this season. Floriana, who only had seven players in their line-up, went ahead at 9-4 with initial hoops from Shawn Pace and Anton Axiaq together with a Nikola Vasovic trey. Athleta replied with a 9-2 run to close the period in front 17-15. In the second quarter, Floriana re-gained their lead after another 8-2 run however points from Josiah Whitehead (198-F-86, college: Robert Morris) gave a slim advantage to Athleta at the interval 30-29. After the break, Floriana had 2 strong runs, 10-0 and 19-2 with points by Chad Patus and Vasovic to lead by 24 points, 65-41, with 10 minutes remaining. Athleta recovered well in the start of the last quarter with 19 consecutive points in the first four minutes with David Camilleri points together with Peter Shoults and Michael Naudi. Score was now 65-60 for Floriana who managed to make 12-4 run with Patus and Vasovic treys to regain a comfortable lead which saw them winning the game 83-67.

Bupa Luxol 89
Starlites 68
(25-21) (17-19) (26-15) (21-13)

Luxol had only six men for this match but yet they were still good enough to beat Starlites in a high scoring match. Luxol got the initial points with an early 11-5 run including a Keith Dimech trey. Ivan Mitrovic replied with a triple for Starlites but William Ahlberg and JP Schembri also netted triples for Luxol who ended the first quarter in front 25-21. Play was again balanced in the second quarter as American Pierce Cumpstone (203-F-94) came more in evidence for Luxol offence as Jacob Formosa and Nikola Stankovic replied for Starlites in a 9-2 run. However Luxol were leading 42-40 at the interval. In the third quarter both teams had more treys with Ahlberg for Luxol and Stankovic and Mitrovic for Starlites. Luxol ended the period with an 11-0 run which gave them a good lead 69-55. In the last quarter Starlites tried hard to recover once more as they put an 9-2 run of their own however Luxol kept calm and slowly ended the game with a solid 15-2 run with more Ahlberg and Cumpstone points to win the game 89-68.

Cynergi Depiro 83
Hibernians 79
(16-19) (14-18) (21-18) (21-17) (11-7)

With less than 2 seconds for the end of the game, Hibs were leading by 4 points but a foul on a Bugeja three pointer and the converted free-throw forced overtime which went Depiro's way. Hibs had a lot of chances to win the game but a series of missed free-throws kept Depiro close enough to obtain their first league win. Depiro opened with an Andrew Aquilina trey but Hibs recovered well to make a 13-0 run as Spaniard Alvaro Lizaur combined well with Marco Matijevic under the boards. In the second quarter Depiro went in front after a Kurt Xuereb triple but there was another 9-0 run by Hibs including a Luke Farrugia triple. Two consecutive treys by Robert Bonnici cut the deficit to 7 points at the interval, 37-30. Depiro kept chasing Hibs after the interval however they kept giving offensive rebounds as under the board was dominated by the Hibs strong duo Lizaur-Matijevic. As the game came close to the end, it looked like it was going Hibs' way despite the continuous mistakes from the free-throw line. However Bugeja's 4 point play took the match into overtime. Depiro were now galvanized as they had two treys from Aquilina to take the lead and Hibs could only reduce the deficit with a Simon Attard triple but final points from Timothy Zammit gave Depiro the victory 83-79.

European Leagues Assist NBA's World Domination - 5 days ago
The NBA is experiencing a gilded age. Clubs have never been more valuable, television contracts have never been more lucrative, and investors are chomping at the bit to invest in the league. One of the reasons The Association has been turned into a license to print money is basketball is played all over the world, especially in Europe.
