Paulo Cunha
The game between third ranked Ovarense (10-5) and sixth ranked Vitoria SC (9-7) was the most important one in the last round on Saturday night. Ovarense was defeated by Vitoria SC in a tough game in Ovarense 77-84. Ovarense trailed by 12 points after 3 quarters before a 24-19 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 77-84 at the end of the game. Vitoria SC forced 19 Ovarense turnovers.

The former international forward Miguel Miranda (205-78, agency: Dynamics Global Management) produced a double-double by scoring 16 points and 11 rebounds for the hosts.

Ovarense at the other side keeps the third position with five games lost. They share it with Academica. Vitoria SC will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Ovarense will play on the road against Fisica in Torres Vedras and is hoping to win this game.
Leader Benfica delivered the fourteenth victory. This time they crushed 7th ranked Barcelos (6-8) 125-52.
