Alges will play next round against league's leader Lombos Quinta trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Lousada will try to continue on its current victory against ninth ranked CDTorres N. in Torres Novas.
The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Olivais (8-2) in Coimbra. Hosts were edged by Lombos Quinta (8-1) 64-61. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Olivais. It was a key game for the top position in the league as both teams had the same 7-1 record before this meeting.
