Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

Twelfth-ranked Sunshine CP (6-12) made lots of trouble for second ranked Townsville Heat (15-3) in Hermit Park on Friday. Townsville Heat managed to secure only two-point victory 99-97. However their fans expected much easier game. The hosts trailed by 8 points after three quarters before their 29-19 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Townsville Heat looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. The best player for the winners was the former international point guard Joshua Wilcher (178-91, college: Cent.Wyoming) who scored 31 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists. American power forward Justin Baker (203-89, college: Utah Valley) chipped in 24 points and 10 rebounds. Townsville Heat's coach used an eleven-player rotation in such tough game. Guard Jamaal Robateau (196, college: Gardner-Webb) produced 34 points (!!!) and 9 rebounds for the guests. Townsville Heat maintains second place in League with 15-3 record despite having the same number of points like the leader Mackay M. Sunshine CP at the other side keeps the twelfth position with 12 games lost.
An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Crows Nest. Second ranked Norths Soul Sports Bears faced 4th placed Manly Warringah Sea Eagles.

Erik Dorbek contributed with 16 points and 12 rebounds for the winners. Guard Daniel Pitcher (185, college: UNB) answered with 14 points for Manly Warringah Sea Eagles.
