James
Ellisor
The most exciting game of round 17 in the LPB took place in Oliveira. This derby game ended with only three-point defeat on the road of 3rd placed Vitoria SC (12-5) to fourth ranked Oliveirense (12-5) 67-64 in the game for the third place. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Vitoria SC. The game was dominated by American players. The best player for the winners was forward James Ellisor (195-90, college: Bemidji St.) who scored 14 points and 6 rebounds. Swingman Carlos Morris (196-92, college: Minnesota, agency: AproK Sports Group) chipped in 15 points and 5 rebounds. Guard Andrew Ferry (190-90, college: Cornell) produced 15 points and 7 rebounds for the guests. Vitoria SC's coach Fernando Sa rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Oliveirense have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to third place, which they share with defeated Vitoria SC. Oliveirense is looking forward to face league's second-placed Benfica on the road in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Vitoria SC will play against the league's leader FC Porto Ferpinta and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Sampaense managed to get a second victory, breaking the series of seven consecutive losses. This time newly promoted Sampaense won against eleventh-ranked Maia Basket in Coimbra 89-74. It's especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 15-point difference suggests that Sampaense is in a good shape to leave the bottom place. American guard Andrew Guillory (190, college: Arkansas Tech) orchestrated the victory by scoring 22 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals. Michael Mendes contributed with 14 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. The former international forward Nuno Marcal (205-75) answered with 33 points (!!!) and 4 steals for Maia Basket. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Newly promoted Sampaense maintains twelfth place with 2-15 record. Maia Basket lost third consecutive game. Maia Basket at the other side keeps the eleventh position with 14 games lost. Sampaense will play against higher ranked Illiabum (#6) in Ilhavo in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Maia Basket will play at home against CAB Madeira (#7) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Leader FC Porto Ferpinta delivered the fourteenth victory on Sunday night. This time they beat 5th ranked Galitos-Barreiro (11-6) 67-61. Sasa Borovnjak stepped up and scored 19 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. FC Porto Ferpinta's coach Moncho Lopez used entire bench and allowed the starting five to rest. Jarred Ogungbemi-Jackson responded with 15 points and 5 assists. FC Porto Ferpinta have a solid series of four victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 14-3 record. Galitos-Barreiro lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the fifth position with six games lost. They share it with Illiabum. FC Porto Ferpinta will meet at home Vitoria SC (#3) in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Galitos-Barreiro will play against Ovarense and hope to secure a win.
The game in Funchal was also worth to mention about. 7th ranked Ovarense (8-9) played at the court of eighth ranked CAB Madeira (8-9). CAB Madeira defeated Ovarense 91-76. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Ovarense. Arvydas Gydra nailed 24 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals for the winning side.
