Ndidi Madu
There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team, derby games, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of undefeated Universitario de Ferrol (7-1) in Caceres on Saturday night. Visitors were rolled over by fourth ranked Al-Qazeres (5-3) 77-51. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Universitario de Ferrol. The game without a history. Al-Qazeres led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to Universitario de Ferrol's 32. Al-Qazeres forced 19 Universitario de Ferrol turnovers. American Ndidi Madu (185-PF, college: Florida) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 11 rebounds for the winners and Samba Ndeye chipped in 11 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. The best for the losing side was Jamaican center Tajay Ashmeade (190-89, college: Seton Hall) with 8 points and 17 rebounds. Universitario de Ferrol's coach gave up on the game allowing to play eleven players seeing no chance for a win. Al-Qazeres moved-up to third place in Group A, which they share with Ensino. Universitario de Ferrol at the other side keeps the second position with one game lost. Al-Qazeres is looking forward to face Oviedo (#5) on the road in the next round. Universitario de Ferrol will play against the league's leader Cortegada in Vilagarcia Arousa and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Eighth-ranked Pabellon Ourense (3-5) gave a tough game to leader Cortegada (8-0) in Vilagarcia Arousa. Cortegada managed to secure only one-point victory 53-52. However their fans expected much easier game. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Pabellon Ourense. Guard Maria Ylenia Manzanares (175-83) nailed 12 points and 8 rebounds for the winning side and Dita Liepkalne accounted for 11 points and 7 rebounds. Swingman Maria Bolonio (180-85) came up with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 11 rebounds for Pabellon Ourense in the defeat. Undefeated Cortegada have an impressive series of eight victories in a row. They maintain first place in Group A with 8-0 record. Pabellon Ourense at the other side keeps the eighth position with five games lost. They share it with Valladolid. Cortegada will play against league's second-placed Universitario de Ferrol on the road in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Pabellon Ourense will play against Maquinaria Ensino (#3) in Lugo and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Madrid between ASEFA Estudiantes and Real Canoe. Seventh ranked ASEFA Estudiantes (5-4) got a very close home victory over 3rd placed Real Canoe (6-3). ASEFA Estudiantes managed to escape with a 1-point win 53-52 on Saturday evening. ASEFA Estudiantes moved-up to sixth place in Group B. Loser Real Canoe dropped to the second position with three games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. ASEFA Estudiantes will meet at home league's leader Pais Vasco in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Real Canoe will play against Tenerife and hope to secure a win.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Fundal Alcobendas (6-3) against fifth ranked Casablanca (6-3) on Saturday night. Visiting Fundal Alcobendas was crushed by Casablanca in Zaragoza 64-39. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Fundal Alcobendas. Casablanca moved-up to second place in Group B, which they share with 3 other teams including defeated Fundal Alcobendas. Casablanca's next round opponent will be Segle XXI (#10) in Barcelona and are hoping to win another game. Fundal Alcobendas will play at home against Las Gaunas (#8) in Logrono.
LF2 top team - Pais Vasco (7-2) had no problems winning another game on Saturday. This time they crushed eleventh ranked Leganes (2-7) 79-39. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Leganes. Pais Vasco maintains first place in Group B with 7-2 record. Loser Leganes keeps the eleventh position with seven games lost. Pais Vasco will face ASEFA Estudiantes (#6) in Madrid in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. Leganes will play on the road against Las Rozas (#11) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
