Dillon Stith
After 3 rounds played we can already see who rules in the State League and who belongs to weaker ones. The round was exceptionally exciting as six games ended with a tiny margin. There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team, favorites losing the games 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 Thunder (1-1) in McKinnon on Saturday night. Visitors were edged by Cougars (1-0) 83-80. They made 17-of-20 free shots (85.0 percent) during the game. It was a great evening for American forward Dillon Stith (200-92, college: St.Vincent) who led his team to a victory scoring 26 points and 5 rebounds. Adrian Tomada helped adding 16 points and 9 assists (went 10 for 10 at the free throw line !!!). The best for the losing side was B Symons with 24 points and 6 rebounds. Cougars are looking forward to face Cavaliers in Cranbourne in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Thunder will play at home against Stingrays (#8) and is hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
Very significant was Hume City Broncos' (#6) 23-point road victory against Stingrays in League 114-91. It was an exceptional evening for naturalized American forward Jake Martin (198-93, college: Luther) who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 16 rebounds. Jamal Shabazz accounted for 21 points and 13 rebounds. American center Joe Reid (205-91, college: Shaw) came up with a double-double by scoring 31 points and 11 rebounds for Stingrays in the defeat. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Hume City Broncos will play against Gulls (#7) in Melbourne in the next round. Stingrays will play on the road against Thunder in Melbourne and hope to get finally their first victory.
Quite upsetting was Vikings' (#1) 29-point home defeat in a game versus Cavaliers who smashed hosts The best player for the winners was Raheem Lemons who had a double-double by scoring 24 points and 11 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was Jake Heath who recorded 27 points and 9 rebounds. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Cavaliers will meet at home Devils (#9) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Vikings will play against Magic in Hawthorn and look forward to get finally their first victory.
And what about another game where Magic (#5) beat Gulls 90-82 on the road. It was a good game for Patrick McBrearty who led his team to a victory with 26 points. Gulls' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Magic's next round opponent will be Vikings (#6) in Melbourne. Gulls will play on the road against Hume City Broncos in Tullamarine and look forward to get finally their first victory.
Crusaders' road win over Canberra Gunners 74-59 was very exciting. It was a great evening for Mitchell Rueter who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 26 points and 11 rebounds. Canberra Gunners' coach tested ten players and allowed the starting five to rest. Crusaders will face Sutherland Sharks (#6) at home in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Canberra Gunners will play against Manly Warringah Sea Eagles and hope to win that game.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 3:
In League winless Werribee D. were destroyed by Keilor T. on the opponent's court 92-64. Winless S.Adelaide P. lost to undefeated W.Adelaide B. in a home game 66-95. Winless Southern T. recorded a loss to Mt Gambier on the road 99-108. Eastern M. defeated Woodville W. on its own court 94-77. Forestville E. smashed C.District L. in Goodwood 138-82. Norwood F. won against N.Adelaide R. at home 82-81. Winless Sturt S. lost to undefeated W.Adelaide B. on the opponent's court 76-90. Kalamunda E.S. was rolled over Goldfields G. in a home game 65-98. Joondalup W. crushed Perry Lakes H. on the road 112-76. Lakeside L. beat Mandurah M. on its own court 80-77. Willetton T. won against Cockburn C. in a road game 90-81. Geraldton B. managed to outperform Rockingham F. at home 86-70. Goldfields G. lost to undefeated Joondalup W. on the opponent's court 83-91. Winless SW Slammers lost to undefeated East Perth E. in a home game 98-108. Kalamunda E.S. beat Mandurah M. on the road 82-75. Winless Perth R. lost to undefeated Warwick S. on its own court 61-96. Winless Newcastle H. lost to undefeated Penrith P. in a road game 62-65. Bankstown B. managed to beat Hornsby S. at home 82-75. Winless Sydney Comets was defeated by Manly Warr. on the opponent's court 80-79. Sutherland S. beat Maitland M. in a home game 69-68. Norths Bears won against Hills H. on the road 70-66.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 35 points (!!!) and 6 rebounds by David Humphries of Goldfields G..

Very significant was Hume City Broncos' (#6) 23-point road victory against Stingrays in League 114-91. Hume City Broncos shot 41 for 58 from the free-throw line, while Stingrays only scored twelve points from the stripe. They outrebounded Stingrays 49-36 including a 18-7 advantage in offensive rebounds. Stingrays were plagued by 38 personal fouls down the stretch. It was an exceptional evening for naturalized American forward Jake Martin (198-93, college: Luther) who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 16 rebounds. American swingman Jamal Shabazz (198-94, college: Samford) accounted for 21 points and 13 rebounds for the winning side. American center Joe Reid (205-91, college: Shaw) came up with a double-double by scoring 31 points and 11 rebounds and the other American import guard Ivory Young (190-95, college: Utah Valley) added 18 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists respectively for Stingrays in the defeat. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games.

Blackburn V. - Casey C. 69-98

Quite upsetting was Vikings' (#1) 29-point home defeat in a game versus Cavaliers who smashed hosts They dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to Vikings' 28. Cavaliers looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists comparing to just 10 passes made by Vikings' players.

At the other side the best for losing team was guard Jake Heath (185, college: S.Dakota Mines) who recorded 27 points and 9 rebounds and Michael D'Agostino added 7 points and 9 rebounds respectively. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games.
