Bryan
Jefferson
There were only 2 rounds played so far and it's still very beginning of the Regular Season in State League. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team and games ending by tiny margin. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Noarlunga City Southern Tigers (0-1) in Woodville on Friday night. Visitors were defeated by West Adelaide Bearcats (1-0) 89-74. 27 personal fouls committed by Noarlunga City Southern Tigers helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American forward Bryan Jefferson (201-94, college: Mary) orchestrated the victory by scoring 22 points and 7 rebounds. Shane Hayward contributed with 17 points, 11 rebounds and 4 blocks for the winners. The former international swingman Anthony Drmic (198-92, college: Boise St.) replied with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 10 rebounds for Noarlunga City Southern Tigers. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. West Adelaide Bearcats are looking forward to face Sturt Sabres (#11) in Pasadena in the next round where they are favorite. Noarlunga City Southern Tigers will play on the road against Mount Gambier Pioneers in Mt Gambier and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Another interesting game for Canberra Gunners (1-0) which played in Condell Park against Bankstown Bruins (0-1). Canberra Gunners had an easy win 92-79. Guard Daniel Joyce (194-87) scored 24 points and 6 assists to lead the charge for the winners and Iain Morison chipped in 12 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 blocks during the contest. Forward Jack Lopez (196-94, college: Montana) responded with 29 points and 7 rebounds. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Canberra Gunners will play against Crusaders in Terrigal in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Bankstown Bruins will play at home against Spiders (#8) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
A very close game took place in Maitland between Maitland Mustangs and Manly Warringah Sea Eagles. Maitland Mustangs (1-0) got a very close home victory over Manly Warringah Sea Eagles (0-1). Maitland Mustangs managed to escape with a 3-point win 71-68 on Saturday evening. Terrell Turner notched 17 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists to lead the effort. Maitland Mustangs' coach used an eleven-player rotation in such tough game. Even 19 points and 7 rebounds by Cooper Wilks did not help to save the game for Manly Warringah Sea Eagles. Maitland Mustangs will meet Sutherland Sharks (#11) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Manly Warringah Sea Eagles will play against Sydney City Comets and hope to win that game.
The game in Mt. Barker was also worth to mention about. Norwood Flames (3-0) played at the court of Eastern Mavericks (0-2). Norwood Flames managed to secure a 7-point victory 86-79. The best player for the winners was James Legan who scored 23 points and 7 assists. Eastern Mavericks' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Norwood Flames' next round opponent will be North Adelaide Rockets (#3) in Greenacres, which may be the game of the day. Eastern Mavericks will play at home against Woodville Warriors (#10) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Important game to mention about took place in Sutherland. Panthers (1-0) saved a 1-point victory on the road edging Sutherland Sharks (0-1) 83-82 on Saturday evening. Sean Weekes saved the victory with a double-double by scoring 24 points and 11 rebounds. Panthers' coach allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Panthers will face Newcastle Hunters (#10) in Broadmeadow in the next round. Sutherland Sharks will play at home against Maitland Mustangs and hope to win that game.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 2:
