LPB is at the halfway of the Regular Season and there are still another 11 rounds left. Coincidentally all hosts won their games.

An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Benfica. Leader Benfica faced 4th placed Ovarense. Host Benfica (10-0) defeated guests from Ovarense (7-3) 91-80. The game without a history. Benfica led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Benfica outrebounded Ovarense 33-17 including 20 on the defensive glass. The best player for the winners was the former international Joao Gomes (201-85) who scored 23 points and 9 rebounds. American forward Seth Doliboa (203-80, college: Wright St.) chipped in 19 points and 6 rebounds. Spanish power forward Sergi Coll (204-82) produced 28 points and 7 rebounds for the guests. Undefeated Benfica have an impressive series of ten victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 10-0 record. Ovarense at the other side keeps the fourth position with three games lost. Benfica are looking forward to face CAB Madeira (#3) in Funchal in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Ovarense will play on the road against Alges and is hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Angra, where higher ranked Vitoria SC (5-5) lost to tenth ranked Lusitania (2-7) in a road game 64-71. American center Marcel Momplasir (205-81, college: Rhode Island) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 13 rebounds.

Naturalized Cape Verdean guard Ivan Almeida (198-89, college: Stonehill, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) answered with a double-double by scoring 25 points and 15 rebounds for Vitoria SC. Lusitania moved-up to ninth place. Vitoria SC at the other side keeps the fifth position with five games lost. They share it with Barcelos.
