After 4 rounds played we can already see who rules in the LPB and who belongs to weaker ones.

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of undefeated Academica (2-1) in Coimbra on Saturday night. Hosts were defeated by Benfica (3-0) 71-62. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Academica. It was a key game for the top position in the league as both teams had the same 2-0 record before this meeting. The guests trailed by 1 point at the halftime before their 25-13 charge in the third quarter, which allowed them to win the game. Benfica outrebounded Academica 37-24 including a 30-16 advantage in defensive rebounds. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international forward Carlos Andrade (197-78, college: Queens, NC) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 16 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists and American forward Seth Doliboa (203-80, college: Wright St.) who added 13 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. Benfica's coach Carlos Lisboa used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side American-Spanish forward Arnette Hallman (199-88) responded with 14 points and 7 rebounds. Benfica have a solid three-game winning streak. Defending champion keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Vitoria SC. Academica at the other side dropped to the fourth place with one game lost. Benfica is looking forward to face Lusitania (#7) in Angra in the next round where they are favorite. Academica will play on the road against Alges and is hoping to win this game.
Very significant was Ovarense's (#5) 74-69 road victory against one of their biggest challengers Barcelos. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Barcelos. The winners were led by the former international forward Miguel Miranda (205-78) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 12 points and 11 rebounds and Cristovao Cordeiro supported him with 17 points. Even a double-double of 17 points and 12 rebounds by guard Rui Coelho (191-89) did not help to save the game for Barcelos. Ovarense (3-1) moved-up to third place. Barcelos at the other side dropped to the fifth position with two games lost. Ovarense will play against Sampaense (#8) in Coimbra in the next round where they are favorite. Barcelos will have a break next round.
Sampaense has registered their first victory this season after two consecutive loses. They used home court advantage to defeat Galitos-Tley (1-3) 91-89 on Saturday. Brandon Sebirumbi fired a double-double by scoring 19 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. Pedro Pinto produced 25 points for lost side. Sampaense (1-2) left bottom position moving up to seventh place, which they share with Lusitania. Newly promoted Galitos-Tley dropped to the ninth position with three games lost. They share it with Fisica. Sampaense will meet higher ranked Ovarense (#3) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Galitos-Tley will play against the league's second-placed Vitoria SC (#2) having rather not much hope for a victory.
Top-ranked Vitoria SC (3-0) crushed at home 8th ranked Fisica (1-3) by 24 points 77-53, which is the biggest margin this round. It was a very good performance for Ivan Almeida who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 21 points, 19 rebounds and 4 assists. Vitoria SC's coach Fernando Sa felt very confident that he used entire bench and allowed the starting five to rest. Vitoria SC have a solid three-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Benfica. Newly promoted Fisica dropped to the ninth place with three games lost. Vitoria SC's next round opponent will be Galitos-Tley (#10) in Barreiro and are hoping to win another game.

Vitoria SC - Fisica 77-53

Top-ranked Vitoria SC (3-0) crushed at home 8th ranked Fisica (1-3) by 24 points 77-53, which is the biggest margin this round. The game was mostly controlled by Vitoria SC. Fisica was better in third quarter 16-9. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Fisica to just 7 points in first quarter. They outrebounded Fisica 44-32 including a 36-19 advantage in defensive rebounds. It was a very good performance for naturalized Cape Verdean guard Ivan Almeida (198-89, college: Stonehill, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 21 points, 19 rebounds and 4 assists. American guard Charlie Swiggett (185-86, college: Wisc.-Milwaukee) contributed with 17 points and 4 assists for the winners. Four Vitoria SC players scored in double figures. Vitoria SC's coach Fernando Sa felt very confident that he used entire bench and allowed the starting five to rest. Cape Verdean guard Braima Freire (188-82) replied with 15 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists and point guard Carlos Barroca (182-84) added 10 points and 5 rebounds in the effort for Fisica. Vitoria SC have a solid three-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Benfica. Newly promoted Fisica dropped to the ninth place with three games lost. Vitoria SC's next round opponent will be Galitos-Tley (#10) in Barreiro and are hoping to win another game.
