There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most important game in the last round took place in Caceres between third ranked Palencia Baloncesto (11-7) and eleventh ranked Caceres Basket (8-10) on Friday night. Palencia Baloncesto was defeated by Caceres Basket on the road 83-72. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Palencia Baloncesto. The game was mostly controlled by Caceres Basket. Palencia Baloncesto managed to win fourth quarter 21-15. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The best player for the winners was Nigerian-Canadian forward Olu Ashaolu (200-88, college: Oregon) who scored 25 points and 8 rebounds. Dutch-British guard Devon Van Oostrum (190-93) chipped in 15 points and 4 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was power forward Urko Otegui (203-81) who recorded 12 points and 6 rebounds.

Nigerian forward Andy Ogide (204-87, college: Colorado St.) replied with 16 points and 7 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) for Ourense. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games.
