An interesting game for CAB Madeira (7-2) which hosted in Funchal second-best Ovarense (7-2). Third ranked CAB Madeira had an easy win 92-58. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Ovarense. CAB Madeira dominated down low during the game scoring 56 of its points in the paint compared to Ovarense's 18. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. It was a good game for the former international Jorge Coelho (200-78) who led his team to a victory with 17 points (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). American guard Jason Smith (183-83, college: Al.-Huntsville) contributed with 15 points and 6 assists for the winners. The former international forward Miguel Miranda (205-78) answered with 9 points and 8 rebounds for Ovarense. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. CAB Madeira have an impressive series of five victories in a row. They moved-up to second place, which they share with defeated Ovarense. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
LPB top team - Benfica (8-0) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed eighth ranked Fisica (2-6) 85-61. American point guard Ricky Franklin (185-87, college: Wisc.-Milwaukee) stepped up and scored 14 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners and LaceDarius Dunn chipped in 22 points. Benfica's coach Carlos Lisboa felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The best for the losing side was Edson Rosario (193-82) with 22 points. The victory was the eighth consecutive win for Benfica. Defending champion maintains first place with 8-0 record. Fisica lost their third game in a row. Newly promoted team keeps the eighth position with six games lost. Benfica will play against bottom-ranked Galitos-Tley (#11) in Barreiro in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Fisica will play at home against Alges and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Lusitania (#9) forced the game against Barcelos (#7) into an overtime, but lost by one point 80-81 on Saturday night. The game took place in Angra. But the guests from Barcelos were better at the end. Rui Coelho nailed 29 points and 4 steals for the winning side. John Huggins came up with 36 points (!!!) (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line) for Lusitania in the defeat. Barcelos (4-5) moved-up to sixth place. Lusitania lost their sixth game in a row. They keep the ninth position with six games lost. Barcelos will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Lusitania will play against Sampaense (#7) in Coimbra and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 9: CAB Madeira smashed Galitos-Tley on the road 87-57. Alges lost to Vitoria SC on its own court 68-80. Sampaense were outscored by Academica in Coimbra 49-72.



Benfica - Fisica 85-61

LPB top team - Benfica (8-0) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed eighth ranked Fisica (2-6) 85-61. The game was mostly controlled by Benfica. Fisica was better in fourth quarter 27-18. 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 6 points in second quarter. They outrebounded Fisica 38-23 including a 27-14 advantage in defensive rebounds. American point guard Ricky Franklin (185-87, college: Wisc.-Milwaukee) stepped up and scored 14 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners and his fellow American import guard LaceDarius Dunn (193-87, college: Baylor, agency: Three Eye Sports) chipped in 22 points. Four Benfica players scored in double figures. Benfica's coach Carlos Lisboa felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The best for the losing side was Edson Rosario (193-82) with 22 points and Guinea-Bissau Franklim Furtado (198-87) scored 15 points and 6 rebounds. The victory was the eighth consecutive win for Benfica. Defending champion maintains first place with 8-0 record. Fisica lost their third game in a row. Newly promoted team keeps the eighth position with six games lost. Benfica will play against bottom-ranked Galitos-Tley (#11) in Barreiro in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Fisica will play at home against Alges and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Galitos-Tley - CAB Madeira 57-87

No shocking result in a game when third ranked CAB Madeira (7-2) crushed bottom-ranked Galitos-Tley (1-7) in Barreiro 87-57 on Saturday. The game without a history. CAB Madeira led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Galitos-Tley to just 7 points in second quarter. CAB Madeira made 16-of-19 free shots (84.2 percent) during the game. They also forced 23 Galitos-Tley turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. The former international Jorge Coelho (200-78) nailed 22 points and 5 rebounds for the winning side and American guard Jason Smith (183-83, college: Al.-Huntsville) accounted for 20 points. Four CAB Madeira players scored in double figures. American guard Jeremy Bynum (190-88, college: Jacksonville St., agency: Interperformances) came up with 16 points and 5 rebounds and the other American import power forward Chris Barnes (205-88, college: Georgia) added 8 points and 7 rebounds respectively for Galitos-Tley in the defeat. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. The victory was the fifth consecutive win for CAB Madeira. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Ovarense. Galitos-Tley lost their sixth game in a row. Newly promoted team stay at the bottom position with seven games lost. They share it with Alges. CAB Madeira will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Galitos-Tley will play against the league's leader Benfica (#1).

CAB Madeira: J.Coelho 22+5reb+3ast, J.Smith 20+1reb+3ast, J.Manuel Coego 12+7reb, S.Jackson 11+5reb+5ast, F.Lima 9+7reb+1ast, J.Costa 5+1reb+6ast

Alges - Vitoria SC 68-80

Very expected game when 10th ranked Alges (1-7) lost at home to fifth ranked Vitoria SC (5-3) 80-68 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Vitoria SC. Alges managed to win second period 23-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Vitoria SC forced 19 Alges turnovers. The former international forward Paulo Cunha (200-80) nailed a double-double by scoring 11 points and 11 rebounds for the winning side and the former international swingman Jose Silva (194-89) accounted for 17 points. Four Vitoria SC players scored in double figures. American forward Jamarkus Holt (205, college: Delta St.) came up with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 10 rebounds and point guard Diogo Ventura (189-94) added 12 points (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line) respectively for Alges in the defeat. Alges' coach Mario Silva rotated twelve players in this game, but that didn't help. Vitoria SC maintains fifth place with 5-3 record. Alges lost their third game in a row. Newly promoted team keep the tenth position with seven games lost. They share it with Galitos-Tley. Vitoria SC will meet at home higher ranked Academica (#4) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Alges will play against Fisica (#8) in Torres Vedras and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Top scorers:
Vitoria SC: J.Silva 17+2reb+1ast, C.Swiggett 14+1reb+3ast, D.Swetalla 13+5reb+2ast, P.Cunha 11+11reb+3ast, I.Almeida 9+11reb, J.St Robert 8

Lusitania - Barcelos 80-81 OT

Lusitania (#9) forced the game against Barcelos (#7) into an overtime, but lost by one point 80-81 on Saturday night. The game took place in Angra. But the guests from Barcelos were better at the end. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Lusitania won third quarter 16-9. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening, at least not yet. The game turned upside-down in the last quarter, where Lusitania used huge pressure winning it 26-25 getting a tie at the end of regular time. They lost eventually overtime period 8-9. Strangely Lusitania outrebounded Barcelos 39-24 including a 28-17 advantage in defensive rebounds. Guard Rui Coelho (191-89) nailed 29 points and 4 steals for the winning side and Slovenian forward Matic Sirnik (200-91) accounted for 19 points and 6 rebounds. American guard John Huggins (188-82, college: Amer.Internat.) came up with 36 points (!!!) (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line) and the other American import forward Durrell Nevels (198-86, college: Cent.Arkansas) added 17 points and 13 rebounds respectively for Lusitania in the defeat. Barcelos (4-5) moved-up to sixth place. Lusitania lost their sixth game in a row. They keep the ninth position with six games lost. Barcelos will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Lusitania will play against Sampaense (#7) in Coimbra and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Top scorers:
Barcelos: R.Coelho 29+2reb+1ast, M.Sirnik 19+6reb+2ast, M.Loncovic 19+4reb+1ast, N.Oliveira 7+5reb+1ast, C.Fechas 3+2reb+3ast, A.Silva 2+1ast

gschID: 186010


Academica - Sampaense 72-49

Rather predictable result when fourth ranked Academica (6-2) rolled over 6th ranked Sampaense (3-5) in Coimbra 72-49 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Academica. Sampaense managed to win second period 18-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Sampaense to just 7 points in third quarter. They outrebounded Sampaense 40-23 including a 30-16 advantage in defensive rebounds. American-Spanish forward Arnette Hallman (199-88) nailed a double-double by scoring 17 points and 13 rebounds for the winning side and forward Joao Balseiro (192-87) accounted for 20 points. Four Academica players scored in double figures. Swingman Carlos Ferreirinho (200-91) came up with 12 points and American-Ugandan forward Brandon Sebirumbi (205-90, college: Furman, agency: Dynamics Global Management) added 9 points respectively for Sampaense in the defeat. Academica maintains fourth place with 6-2 record. Sampaense at the other side dropped to the seventh position with five games lost. Academica will meet Vitoria SC (#5) in the next round. Sampaense will play against Lusitania in Angra and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Top scorers:
Academica: J.Balseiro 20+3reb, A.Hallman 17+13reb+3ast, B.Costa 11+7reb+2ast, M.Goncalves 10+10reb+1ast, T.Toler 8+2reb, D.Simoes 6+3reb+4ast
