Defending champion Alges dropped to the second position with two games lost. They share it with GDESSA and Olivais. They were replaced at the leadership position by Lombos Quinta. 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. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Haily Dunham (188-87, college: USC, agency: Merit Sports) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 21 points and 10 rebounds. Felicite Mendes contributed with 9 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Lombos Quinta's coach allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. American center Lady Comfort (188-86, college: Temple) replied with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 13 rebounds for Olivais. Lombos Quinta have an impressive eight-game winning streak.
