DJ Kennedy
The Regular Season in NBL just ended. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

Round in NBL means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in Melbourne where host United (18-10) beat league's leader Perth Wildcats (18-10) 81-70 on Sunday evening. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Perth Wildcats. It was a key game for the top position in the league. 24 personal fouls committed by Perth Wildcats helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The best player for the winners was American forward DJ Kennedy (198-89, college: St.John's) who had a double-double by scoring 21 points, 15 rebounds and 6 assists. International guard Mitchell McCarron (191-92, college: MSU Denver) chipped in 15 points and 8 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was international power forward Nick Kay (206-92, college: MSU Denver) who recorded 22 points and 8 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Defending champion keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Kings and Wildcats.
The game had a very big importance for eighth-ranked Cairns Taipans as it allowed them to take a leadership position after previous leader's (Perth Wildcats) loss. Cairns Taipans edged higher ranked United in Melbourne 87-85. It was a good game for American guard Melo Trimble (190-95, college: Maryland) who led his team to a victory with 21 points, 5 rebounds and 9 assists. DJ Newbill contributed with 17 points for the winners. The former international guard Chris Goulding (192-88) replied with 22 points and 4 assists for United. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. As mentioned above they took over a top position. Defending champion United still keeps top place with ten games lost. They share the position with Kings and Wildcats.
An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Perth. First ranked Perth Wildcats faced 4th ranked Adelaide 36ers. Host Perth Wildcats (18-10) defeated guests from Findon (14-14) 93-85. Bryce Cotton scored 29 points to lead the charge for the winners. The best for the losing side was Daniel Johnson with 23 points and 7 rebounds. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. Perth Wildcats have an impressive six-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 18-10 record, which they share with Kings and United. Adelaide 36ers lost third consecutive game. They keep the fourth place with 14 games lost. They share the position with Bullets.
The game in Auckland supposed to be also worth to mention about. 6th ranked Illawarra Hawks (12-16) played at the court of seventh ranked New Zealand Breakers (12-16). New Zealand Breakers smashed Illawarra Hawks 130-96. Shawn Long notched 21 points and 8 rebounds to lead the effort. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. New Zealand Breakers moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Hawks. Illawarra Hawks lost third consecutive game.

In the last two games of round 18 bottom-ranked Taipans were defeated by Kings in Sydney 89-84. Bullets beat Breakers at home 84-78.

It was a good game for American guard Melo Trimble (190-95, college: Maryland) who led his team to a victory with 21 points, 5 rebounds and 9 assists. The other American import guard DJ Newbill (193-92, college: Penn St.) contributed with 17 points for the winners. The former international guard Chris Goulding (192-88) replied with 22 points and 4 assists and international guard Mitchell McCarron (191-92, college: MSU Denver) added 13 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals in the effort for United. Four United players scored in double figures. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. As mentioned above they took over a top position.
