Cameron
Gliddon
The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position and favorites losing the games. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

Sixth defeat of league's leader Perth Wildcats (11-6) against fourth ranked Bullets (8-7) 93-86 was the most important game of the last round. Bullets made 19-of-24 free shots (79.2 percent) during the game. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of international swingman Cameron Gliddon (197-89, college: Concordia Irvine) who helped to win the game recording 24 points (made all of his nine free throws !!!). American swingman Lamar Patterson (196-91, college: Pittsburgh, agency: Pensack Sports) contributed with 17 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. American guard Bryce Cotton (185-92, college: Providence, agency: Pensack Sports) replied with 29 points (made all of his eight free throws) for Perth Wildcats. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Bullets have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain fourth position with 8-7 record. Perth Wildcats at the other side dropped to the second place with six games lost. They were replaced at the leadership position by United. Perth Wildcats will play next round against Cairns Taipans trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Bullets will try to continue on its current victory against sixth ranked Illawarra Hawks in Gwynneville.
Leading Perth Wildcats (11-6) recorded its sixth loss in Gwynneville. Visitors were defeated by seventh ranked Illawarra Hawks (7-9) 81-77. The former international center David Andersen (213-80) scored 21 points to lead the charge for the winners and Todd Blanchfield chipped in 19 points during the contest. At the losing side American guard Bryce Cotton (185-92, college: Providence, agency: Pensack Sports) responded with 21 points. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. Illawarra Hawks have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to sixth place. Perth Wildcats at the other side dropped to the second position with six games lost. Illawarra Hawks will play against higher ranked Bullets (#4) in Brisbane in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Perth Wildcats will play on the road against Cairns Taipans and hope to get back on the winning track.
An interesting game for United (11-5) which played road game in Sydney against their biggest opponent Kings (10-5). Third ranked United managed to get a 5-point victory 75-70. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Kings. It was a key game for the top position in the league. David Barlow notched a double-double by scoring 12 points and 11 rebounds to lead the effort. United's coach Dean Vickerman used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Even a double-double of 11 points, 15 rebounds and 4 blocks by Andrew Bogut did not help to save the game for Kings. Defending champion keeps a position of league leader. Loser Kings dropped to the third place with five games lost. United will meet at home Adelaide 36ers (#5) in the next round. Kings will play against Bullets and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Cairns was also worth to mention about. Second ranked Kings (10-5) played at the court of 8th ranked Cairns Taipans (1-13). Kings defeated Cairns Taipans 81-70. Andrew Bogut fired a double-double by scoring 10 points, 15 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. Despite that victory Kings went down to third position due to points difference. Cairns Taipans lost eleventh consecutive game. They stay at the bottom place with 13 games lost. Kings' next round opponent will be Bullets (#4) in Brisbane. Cairns Taipans will play at home against the league's second-placed Perth Wildcats (#2) and hope to win that game.
The game between seventh ranked New Zealand Breakers (6-8) and 7th ranked Illawarra Hawks (7-9) in Auckland on Friday ended with biggest points difference. New Zealand Breakers beat guests from Gwynneville 96-79. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Illawarra Hawks. It was a very good performance for Shawn Long who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 26 points and 14 rebounds. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. New Zealand Breakers maintains seventh position with 6-8 record. Loser Illawarra Hawks dropped to the sixth place with nine games lost. New Zealand Breakers will face higher ranked Adelaide 36ers (#5) in Findon in the next round and it may be quite challenging game.

In the last game of round 10 bottom-ranked Taipans were beaten by 36ers on the road 87-82.

Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when United made 8 blocks. The former international forward David Barlow (205-83, college: Metro St.) notched a double-double by scoring 12 points and 11 rebounds to lead the effort and American point guard Casper Ware (178-90, college: Long Beach St.) supported him with 8 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists. United's coach Dean Vickerman used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Even a double-double of 11 points, 15 rebounds and 4 blocks by the former international center Andrew Bogut (213-84, college: Utah) did not help to save the game for Kings. Ukrainian-American point guard Jerome Randle (175-87, college: California) added 15 points for lost side. Four Kings players scored in double figures.
