Nuno Cortez
Proliga top team - Oliveirense (13-1) had no problems winning another game on Saturday. This time they crushed eleventh ranked Leca (1-11) in Oliveira 94-55. The game was mostly controlled by Oliveirense. Leca managed to win fourth quarter 11-10. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Oliveirense forced 24 Leca turnovers and outrebounded them 35-20 including 22 on the defensive glass. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists comparing to just 7 passes made by Leca's players. It was a great evening for the former international center Nuno Cortez (205-82) who led his team to a victory scoring 24 points and 9 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field). The former international guard Joao Reveles (187-80) helped adding 11 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals. The best for the losing side was naturalized Angolan forward Paulo Ferreira (187-80) with 8 points and 5 rebounds. 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 series of eight victories in a row. They maintain first place with 13-1 record. Leca lost eleventh consecutive game. Newly promoted team stay at the bottom position with 11 games lost. Oliveirense will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Leca will play at home against Guifoes (#5) and is hoping to prove to their supporters that they can break losing series.
An interesting game took place in Guifoes where higher ranked Guifoes (7-6) were upseton its own court by tenth ranked Terceira (4-10) 65-52. It was an exceptional evening for forward Frederico Tavares (194-88) who led the winners and scored 19 points and 6 rebounds. Joao Torrie accounted for 10 points and 13 rebounds. Forward Fabio Fernandes (201-86) came up with 13 points and 5 rebounds for Guifoes in the defeat. Terceira moved-up to eighth place. Guifoes at the other side keep the fifth position with six games lost. Terceira will play against higher ranked Angrabasket (#7) at home in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Guifoes will play against Leca and hope to get back on the winning track.
