Steve Baker
The most important game in the last round took place in Coimbra between third ranked Ovarense (10-4) and fifth ranked Sampaense (8-6) on Saturday night. Ovarense was defeated by Sampaense in a tough game on the road 80-85. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Ovarense. The hosts trailed by 10 points after three quarters before their 28-13 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Sampaense dominated down low during the game scoring 52 of its points in the paint compared to Ovarense's 32. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Steve Baker (187-90, college: Green Bay) who helped to win the game recording 27 points and the other American import forward Al Rapier (200-89, college: Stony Brook, agency: Dynamics Global Management) who added 19 points and 8 assists during the contest. At the losing side the former international forward Miguel Miranda (205-78) responded with a double-double by scoring 20 points, 13 rebounds and 5 assists. Sampaense have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain fifth position with 8-6 record. Ovarense at the other side keeps the third place with four games lost.

LPB top team - Benfica (13-1) managed to deliver another win. This time they beat eighth ranked Lusitania (4-10) in Angra 70-61.

Even 18 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists by American center Marcel Momplasir (205-81, college: Rhode Island) did not help to save the game for Lusitania. Benfica have a solid three-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 13-1 record. Lusitania at the other side keeps the eighth place with ten games lost.

Academica - Alges 80-76

Very expected game in Coimbra where 10th ranked Alges (2-12) were defeated by fourth ranked Academica (10-5) 80-76 on Saturday. However just four-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. The hosts started the game with a very strong first quarter 30-18. But Alges won second period 20-11. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Academica won last quarter 21-18. Forward Joao Balseiro (192-87) fired 23 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. American-Spanish forward Arnette Hallman (199-88) chipped in 18 points and 9 rebounds. American forward Jamarkus Holt (205, college: Delta St.) produced a double-double by scoring 21 points and 10 rebounds and guard Antonio Pires (185-86) added 10 points and 10 assists respectively for lost side. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Academica maintains fourth position with 10-5 record. Alges lost fourth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keep the tenth place with 12 games lost. Academica will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.
