Ramone Moore
Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most surprising game was another loss of top-ranked United (11-6) in Melbourne on Wednesday night. Hosts were edged by fifth ranked Adelaide 36ers (9-8) 103-101. Adelaide 36ers made 26-of-34 free shots (76.5 percent) during the game. 27 personal fouls committed by United helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Americans were the main players on the court. It was a great evening for guard Ramone Moore (193-89, college: Temple, agency: Two Points) who led his team to a victory scoring 18 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Forward Jacob Wiley (203-94, college: E.Washington) helped adding 18 points and 5 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). point guard Casper Ware (178-90, college: Long Beach St.) responded with 26 points and 5 assists. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Adelaide 36ers have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Bullets. United lost third consecutive game. Defending champion dropped to the third position with six games lost. Adelaide 36ers is looking forward to face New Zealand Breakers (#7) in Auckland in the next round. United will play on the road against Bullets (#4) in Brisbane and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Cairns was also worth to mention about. Third ranked Perth Wildcats (12-6) played at the court of 8th ranked Cairns Taipans (1-14). Perth Wildcats defeated Cairns Taipans 93-78. It was an exceptional evening for American guard Terrico White (196-90, college: Mississippi) who led the winners and scored 22 points and 5 assists. Nick Kay accounted for 17 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. The former international forward Lucas Walker (202-84, college: St.Mary's, CA) came up with 12 points and 6 rebounds for Cairns Taipans in the defeat. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Perth Wildcats keep a position of league leader. Cairns Taipans lost twelfth consecutive game. They stay at the bottom place with 14 games lost. Perth Wildcats will play against New Zealand Breakers (#7) in Auckland in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Cairns Taipans will play at home against the league's second-placed Kings to get more than just one victory in their record.
The game in Gwynneville supposed to be also quite interesting. Fifth ranked Bullets (9-8) played at the court of 6th ranked Illawarra Hawks (7-10). Bullets smashed Illawarra Hawks 100-74 on Monday. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Illawarra Hawks. The best player for the winners was Lamar Patterson who scored 18 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. David Andersen produced 15 points and 7 rebounds for the hosts. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Bullets moved-up to fourth place, which they share with 36ers. Illawarra Hawks at the other side keep the sixth position with ten games lost. Bullets will meet at home higher ranked United (#3) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Illawarra Hawks will play against the league's second-placed Kings and hope to secure a win.

In the last two games of round 11 Bullets lost to Kings on the opponent's court 68-75. 36ers managed to outperform Breakers in a home game 109-98.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 14 points and 10 rebounds by Mika Vukona of Bullets.

Kings - Bullets 75-68

Rather expected game in Sydney where 5th ranked Bullets (9-8) were defeated by third ranked Kings (11-5) 75-68 on Saturday. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Kings made 7 blocks. The best player for the winners was the former international center Andrew Bogut (213-84, college: Utah) who had a double-double by scoring 14 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 blocks. Ukrainian-American point guard Jerome Randle (175-87, college: California) chipped in 17 points. Four Kings players scored in double figures. Kings' coach Andrew Gaze used a ten-player rotation and allowed the starting five to rest. American swingman Lamar Patterson (196-91, college: Pittsburgh, agency: Pensack Sports) produced 17 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists and the former international forward Cameron Bairstow (206-90, college: N.Mexico) added 17 points and 8 rebounds respectively for the guests.

36ers - Breakers 109-98

Rather predictable result in Findon where fifth ranked Adelaide 36ers (9-8) defeated 7th ranked New Zealand Breakers (6-9) 109-98 on Sunday. Adelaide 36ers made 36-of-44 free shots (81.8 percent) during the game, while New Zealand Breakers only scored seventeen points from the stripe. They outrebounded New Zealand Breakers 51-24 including a 38-19 advantage in defensive rebounds. Adelaide 36ers looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists.

Five New Zealand Breakers players scored in double figures. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. Adelaide 36ers have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Bullets. New Zealand Breakers lost fifth consecutive game.

Taipans - Wildcats 78-93

The game in Cairns was also worth to mention about. Third ranked Perth Wildcats (12-6) played at the court of 8th ranked Cairns Taipans (1-14). Perth Wildcats defeated Cairns Taipans 93-78. Perth Wildcats players were unselfish on offense dishing 24 assists comparing to just 11 passes made by Cairns Taipans' players. It was an exceptional evening for American guard Terrico White (196-90, college: Mississippi) who led the winners and scored 22 points and 5 assists. International power forward Nick Kay (206-92, college: Metro St.) accounted for 17 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists for the winning side.

Hawks - Bullets 74-100

The game in Gwynneville supposed to be also quite interesting. Fifth ranked Bullets (9-8) played at the court of 6th ranked Illawarra Hawks (7-10). Bullets smashed Illawarra Hawks 100-74 on Monday. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Illawarra Hawks. Bullets looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists.

Illawarra Hawks at the other side keep the sixth position with ten games lost.
