Willingham
There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of undefeated Rivas Ecopolis (11-1) at the home court on Sunday night. Hosts were defeated by second ranked Perfumerias Avenida (9-2) 74-63. It ended at the same time the 11-game winning streak of Rivas Ecopolis. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. The guests trailed by 1 point at the halftime before their 47-35 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. American center Le'Coe Willingham (183-81, college: Auburn, agency: Josep and Nicolas) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 12 rebounds for the winners and her fellow American import swingman Monique Currie (183-83, college: Duke) chipped in 11 points and 8 rebounds. Perfumerias Avenida's coach Victor Antonio Lapena used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side swingman Queralt Casas (178-92) responded with 21 points and 6 steals. Perfumerias Avenida have an impressive series of six victories in a row. They maintain second place with 9-2 record having just three points less than leader Rivas Ecopolis. Rivas Ecopolis at the other side still keeps top position with one game lost. Perfumerias Avenida are looking forward to face Caja Rural (#4) in Zamora in the next round. Rivas Ecopolis will play on the road against Argon Uni Girona and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Caja Rural (#4) was upset in Hondarribia by eighth ranked Hondarribia-Irun 75-70. American center Mandisa Stevenson (191-82, college: Auburn) nailed a double-double by scoring 22 points and 14 rebounds for the winning side and Italee Lucas accounted for 20 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Finnish center Taru Tuukkanen (190-77, college: Xavier, agency: Regeneracom Sports) came up with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 10 rebounds for Caja Rural in the defeat. Hondarribia-Irun (5-7) moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Burgos and Gran Canaria. Newly promoted Caja Rural keeps the fourth position with six games lost. They share it with Cadi ICG S. and UNB Obenasa. Hondarribia-Irun will play against Conquero (#10) in Huelva in the next round. Caja Rural will play on the road against the league's second-placed Perfumerias Avenida (#2) having rather not much hope for a victory.
Eleventh-ranked Socinsa Bembibre (1-11) gave a tough game to seventh ranked Cadi ICG S. (6-6) on Saturday. The visitors from Seu D'urgell managed to secure only three-point victory 55-52. However their fans expected much easier game. Arhonda Covington fired a double-double by scoring 13 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. Cristina Lopez produced 10 points, 6 assists and 4 steals for lost side. The victory was the third consecutive win for Cadi ICG S..

An interesting game took place in Las Palmas where higher ranked Navarra Pamplona (6-6) was upset on the court of ninth ranked Gran Canaria (5-7) 61-53. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Navarra Pamplona. Worth to mention a great performance of Leticia Romero who helped to win the game recording 21 points and 7 rebounds (made all of her eight free throws). Gran Canaria moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Hondar.-Irun and Burgos. Navarra Pamplona at the other side dropped to the fourth position with six games lost. Gran Canaria's next round opponent will be Jopisa Burgos (#7) on the road. Navarra Pamplona will play against Socinsa Bembibre.
An interesting game took place in Huelva where higher ranked Jopisa Burgos (5-7) was upset on the court of tenth ranked Conquero (3-9) 63-51 on Saturday. Bernice Mosby stepped up with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. Newly promoted Conquero maintains tenth place with 3-9 record. Jopisa Burgos at the other side, also newcomer in the league, dropped to the seventh position with seven games lost.
