Bryce Cotton
An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Melbourne. Second ranked Perth Wildcats faced 3rd placed United. Guests from Perth (7-3) smashed host United (5-5) 91-59. They outrebounded United 50-30 including a 30-15 advantage in defensive rebounds. 26 personal fouls committed by United helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American guard Bryce Cotton (185-92, college: Providence, agency: Pensack Sports) fired 24 points for the winners. The former international forward Lucas Walker (202-84, college: St.Mary's, CA) chipped in 14 points and 12 rebounds. American swingman Casey Prather (198-91, college: Florida) produced 20 points and 5 rebounds for lost side. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Defending champion maintains second place with 7-3 record having just two points less than leader Breakers. United at the other side keeps the third position with five games lost. They share it with 36ers. Perth Wildcats are looking forward to face league's leader New Zealand Breakers in Auckland in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. United will play at home against Illawarra Hawks and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
Leader New Zealand Breakers delivered the ninth victory. This time they beat 7th ranked Bullets (3-6) 90-82 in Auckland. Worth to mention a great performance of Dominican-American point guard Edgar Sosa (190-88, college: Louisville) who helped to win the game recording 24 points. DJ Newbill contributed with 19 points and 5 assists for the winners. American swingman Perrin Buford (198-94, college: Middle Tenn.St., agency: 3Eye) answered with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 10 rebounds for Bullets. New Zealand Breakers (9-1) have an impressive series of nine victories in a row. They maintain first place. Bullets at the other side keep the seventh position with six games lost. New Zealand Breakers will play against league's second-placed Perth Wildcats at home in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Bullets will play against Adelaide 36ers (#4) in Findon and hope to get back on the winning track.
The game in Cairns supposed to be also quite interesting. 4th placed Illawarra Hawks (5-6) played at the court of sixth ranked Cairns Taipans (5-6). Cairns Taipans smashed Illawarra Hawks 87-66 on Saturday. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Illawarra Hawks. It was a great evening for Scoochie Smith who led his team to a victory scoring 19 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. At the losing side Demitrius Conger responded with 17 points. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Cairns Taipans moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Hawks. Cairns Taipans will meet at home bottom-ranked Kings (#8) in the next round. Illawarra Hawks will play against United in Melbourne and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Hawks - Kings 97-93

No shocking result in a game in Gwynneville where fourth ranked Illawarra Hawks (5-6) defeated bottom-ranked Kings (2-9) 97-93.
