Joao Reveles
There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The game between Top Four teams took place in Oliveira. First ranked host Oliveirense (12-1) smashed 4th ranked Guifoes (7-5) 100-72. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Guifoes. The game without a history. Oliveirense led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 58 of its points in the paint compared to Guifoes' 32. They outrebounded Guifoes 35-19 including 22 on the defensive glass. Oliveirense looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. The former international guard Joao Reveles (187-80) scored 26 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists to lead the charge for the winners and the former international center Nuno Cortez (205-82) chipped in 19 points and 9 rebounds during the contest. Naturalized Angolan guard Joao Pereira (186-83) responded with 21 points and 6 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Oliveirense have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 12-1 record. Guifoes at the other side dropped to the fifth place with five games lost. Oliveirense are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Leca (#11) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Guifoes will play against Terceira (#10) in Angra Heroismo and are hoping to prove to their fans that the loss was just an accident.
Sangalhos (#4) were upset in Angra by seventh ranked Angrabasket 86-51. American guard Lamar Wright (191, college: Kean) notched 37 points (!!!) and 7 assists to lead the effort and Alvaro Pontes supported him with 15 points, 14 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals. Even 15 points by swingman Emanuel Silva (188-79) did not help to save the game for Sangalhos. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Angrabasket maintains seventh position with 5-8 record. Sangalhos at the other side keep the fourth place with six games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
The game in Angra was also quite interesting. 6th ranked Illiabum (7-7) played at the court of seventh ranked Angrabasket (5-8). Angrabasket managed to secure a 9-point victory 70-61 on Saturday. The best player for the winners was Lamar Wright who scored 29 points and 6 rebounds. Miguel Queiroz produced a double-double by scoring 25 points, 14 rebounds and 6 assists for the guests. Angrabasket maintains seventh position with 5-8 record. Loser Illiabum keeps the sixth place with seven games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
A very interesting game took place in Angra Heroismo. It ended with only three-point defeat on the road of higher ranked Illiabum (7-7) to tenth ranked Terceira (3-10) 50-47 on Sunday evening. Chano Rashiduddin orchestrated the victory by scoring 16 points and 8 rebounds. Terceira maintains tenth position with 3-10 record. Illiabum at the other side keeps the sixth place with seven games lost. Terceira's next round opponent will be higher ranked Guifoes (#5) on the road and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.
Third ranked Maia Basket (10-3) crushed at home 7th ranked Ginasio (3-9) by 47 points 87-40, which is the biggest margin this round on Saturday night. Nuno Marcal had a double-double by scoring 18 points and 11 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners. Ginasio's coach gave up on the game allowing to play eleven players seeing no chance for a win. Maia Basket maintains third position with 10-3 record having just two points less than leader Oliveirense. Ginasio lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the eighth place with nine games lost. Maia Basket will face Benfica B (#9) in Lisboa in the next round where they are favorite. Ginasio will play on the road against the league's second-placed Electrico FC in Ponte de Sor and be promoted back to the LPB just one year after relegation.

In the last two games of round 14 Sangalhos won against Terceira on the opponent's court 57-52. Electrico FC managed to outperform Benfica B in a home game 82-68.



Terceira - Sangalhos 52-57

Very expected game in Angra Heroismo where 10th ranked Terceira (3-10) was defeated by fourth ranked Sangalhos (8-6) 57-52 on Saturday.
