The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Oliveirense as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Oliveirense smashed 7th ranked Angrabasket in Oliveira 93-64. The game was mostly controlled by Oliveirense. Angrabasket managed to win fourth quarter 19-18. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Oliveirense forced 23 Angrabasket turnovers and outrebounded them 33-18 including 20 on the defensive glass. The best player for the winners was the former international center Nuno Cortez (205-82) who had a double-double by scoring 24 points and 14 rebounds. The former international guard Joao Reveles (187-80) chipped in 18 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Oliveirense's coach Sergio Salvador felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Guard Hugo Pola (180-92) produced 25 points, 5 assists and 6 steals for the guests. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Angrabasket at the other side keeps the seventh place with five games lost. Angrabasket will have a break next week, which should allow them to rest in order to get back on the winning path. Oliveirense will try to continue on its current victory against eleventh ranked Terceira in Angra Heroismo.
Another exciting game was between fourth ranked Electrico FC and 5th ranked Guifoes where Electrico FC (5-2) beat Guifoes (4-3) on the road 78-66. Forward Aylton Medeiros (194-88) orchestrated the victory by scoring 21 points and 8 rebounds. Mario Neves contributed with 8 points and 17 rebounds for the winners. Center Joao Moreira (200-85) replied with 25 points for Guifoes. Electrico FC maintains fourth position with 5-2 record. Guifoes at the other side dropped to the sixth place with three games lost. Electrico FC will play against Leca (#10) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. Guifoes will play against the league's second-placed Maia Basket (#2) and hope to get back on the winning track.
The game in Figueira da Foz was also quite interesting. Third ranked Sangalhos (6-2) played at the court of 8th ranked Ginasio (2-5). Sangalhos managed to secure a 4-point victory 76-72 on Saturday. Worth to mention a great performance of Emanuel Silva who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 20 points and 11 rebounds. Pedro Rocha responded with 13 points and 9 rebounds. Ginasio's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Sangalhos have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain third position with 6-2 record behind leader Oliveirense. Loser Ginasio keeps the eighth place with five games lost. Sangalhos will meet Benfica B (#9) in the next round where they are favorite. Ginasio will play against Illiabum in Ilhavo and hope to secure a win and be promoted back to the LPB just one year after relegation.

Rest of the games of round 8 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Maia Basket crushed Leca in a road game 83-61. Benfica B was beaten by Illiabum at home 64-71. Oliveirense destroyed Terceira on the opponent's court 82-62.


Guifoes - Electrico FC 66-78

Another exciting game was between fourth ranked Electrico FC and 5th ranked Guifoes where Electrico FC (5-2) beat Guifoes (4-3) on the road 78-66. The game was mostly controlled by Electrico FC. Guifoes was better in third quarter 19-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Guifoes 40-29 including 28 on the defensive glass. Guifoes were plagued by 28 personal fouls down the stretch. Forward Aylton Medeiros (194-88) orchestrated the victory by scoring 21 points and 8 rebounds. Naturalized Cape Verdean swingman Mario Neves (190-77) contributed with 8 points and 17 rebounds for the winners. Four Electrico FC players scored in double figures. Center Joao Moreira (200-85) replied with 25 points and naturalized Angolan guard Joao Pereira (186-83) added 15 points and 5 rebounds in the effort for Guifoes.

Benfica B - Illiabum 64-71

No shocking result in a game in Lisboa where sixth ranked Illiabum (5-3) defeated 9th ranked Benfica B (1-6) 71-64 on Saturday. Benfica B trailed by 12 points after 3 quarters before a 24-19 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 64-71 at the end of the game.

Round 20
Terceira - Oliveirense 62-82

Very expected game in Angra Heroismo where 11th ranked Terceira (1-7) was rolled over by second ranked Oliveirense (7-1) 82-62 on Saturday. The guests trailed by 2 points after three quarters before their 34-12 charge, which allowed them to win the game.
