Joshua
Bannan
There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with defeat of the leader, derby games, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most surprising game was the first loss of Ballarat Miners (7-1) in Wendouree on Saturday night. Hosts were edged by ninth ranked BA CoE (5-6) 80-77. They made 18-of-20 free shots (90.0 percent) during the game. Worth to mention a great performance of power forward Joshua Bannan (204-1) who helped to win the game recording 32 points and 9 rebounds and guard Tamuri Wigness (184-2) who added 11 points and 9 rebounds during the contest. BA CoE's coach Adam Caporn used an eleven-player rotation in such tough game. The best for the losing side was American forward Jerry Evans (203-90, college: Nevada) with 30 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists and 7 steals. Despite that victory BA CoE went down to eleventh position (League) due to points difference. Ballarat Miners at the other side still keep top place with one game lost. BA CoE are looking forward to face higher ranked NW Tasmania Thunder (#9) in Ulverstone in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Ballarat Miners will play on the road against Sabres (#18) in Cheltenham and are hoping to win this game.
Very significant was Waverley Falcons' (#5) just 3-point road victory against one of their biggest challengers Bendigo Braves in League. The winners were led by American guard Dylan Travis (190-93, college: Florida Southern) who scored that evening 29 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists and Bennie Lewis supported him with 16 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists. Even a double-double of 25 points and 12 rebounds by American forward Ray Turner (206-90, college: Texas A&M) did not help to save the game for Bendigo Braves. Bendigo Braves' coach tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Waverley Falcons (6-3) moved-up to fourth place in League. Bendigo Braves at the other side dropped to the seventh position with four games lost. Waverley Falcons will play against BA CoE (#11) in Canberra in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Bendigo Braves will play on the road against Dandenong Rangers (#10) and hope to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Kalgoorlie between Lightning and Giants. Sixth ranked Lightning (8-3) got a very close victory on the road over one of their biggest challengers Giants (8-5). Lightning managed to escape with a 1-point win 98-97 in the fight for the fifth place. The best player for the winners was John Isenbarger who scored 37 points (!!!) and 4 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was Jay Bowie who recorded a double-double by scoring 23 points and 13 assists. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Lightning moved-up to fifth place in League. Loser Giants dropped to the sixth position with five games lost. Lightning will meet league's second-placed Senators in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Giants will play against Magic (#12) and hope to secure a win.
Very important is a home loss of second ranked Kilsyth Cobras (6-3) against fifteenth ranked Diamond Valley Eagles (3-7) on Saturday night. Host Kilsyth Cobras were defeated by Diamond Valley Eagles in a tough game in Kilsyth 90-98. It was a good game for Logan Hovey who led his team to a victory with 27 points and 8 rebounds. Diamond Valley Eagles' coach allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Despite that victory Diamond Valley Eagles went down to seventeenth position (League) due to points difference. Kilsyth Cobras at the other side dropped to the third place with three games lost. Diamond Valley Eagles' next round opponent will be higher ranked Knox Raiders (#14) in Wantirna South and it may be quite challenging game. Kilsyth Cobras will play on the road against Bandits (#13) in Albury and hope to win that game.
Very important is a home loss of third ranked Phoenix (3-1) against twelfth ranked Brisbane Spartans (2-4) on Sunday night. Host Phoenix was defeated by Brisbane Spartans in a tough game in Cotton Tree 100-105. Worth to mention a great performance of Chris Whitehead who helped to win the game recording 29 points and 5 assists. Brisbane Spartans' coach used entire bench in such tough game. Brisbane Spartans moved-up to tenth place in League. Loser Phoenix dropped to the fifth position with one game lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.

Group Big V
Corio Bay S. - Keilor T. 80-94

Very expected game in Geelong where 8th ranked Stingrays (2-9) were defeated by fourth ranked Thunder (7-5) 94-80 on Saturday. Thunder made 16-of-21 free shots (76.2 percent) during the game. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Mike Anderson (193-91, college: Washington) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 35 points (!!!), 18 rebounds and 9 assists and B Symons who added 16 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was American guard Ivory Young (190-95, college: Utah Valley) with 28 points and 6 assists and Aaron Ruiz scored 10 points and 6 rebounds. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Stingrays' coach let to play twelve players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Thunder maintains fourth position in League with 7-5 record. Loser Stingrays keep the eighth place with nine games lost. Thunder's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Melbourne to the arena Gulls.

Chelsea G. - Hawthorn M. 73-108

Rather predictable result in Melbourne where third ranked Magic (8-4) smashed 6th ranked Gulls (4-7) 108-73 on Saturday. Magic dominated down low during the game scoring 62 of its points in the paint compared to Gulls' 32. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Nelson Kirksey (190-89, college: UMKC) who helped to win the game recording 26 points and 5 rebounds (on 12-of-15 shooting from the field) and the other American import power forward Michael Phillips (201-90, college: Howard) who added 22 points and 9 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was Matthew Brasser with 22 points and American Corey Standerfer (201-88, college: York, NE) scored 10 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Magic maintains third position in League with 8-4 record having just three points less than leader Joondalup W. Loser Gulls keep the sixth place with seven games lost. Magic will face Hume City Broncos (#5) in Tullamarine in the next round. Gulls' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Melbourne Thunder.

Werribee D. - Hume City 91-110

Not a big story in a game in Werribee where 7th ranked Devils (3-9) were rolled over by fifth ranked Hume City Broncos (7-5) 110-91 on Saturday. Hume City Broncos dominated down low during the game scoring 88 of its points in the paint compared to Devils' 44. Hume City Broncos forced 22 Devils turnovers. Worth to mention a great performance of naturalized American forward Jake Martin (198-93, college: Luther) who helped to win the game recording 27 points and 8 rebounds and American guard Jordan Coleman (196-92, college: Valpo) who added 21 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. Hume City Broncos' coach used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The best for the losing side was American forward Konor Kulas (201-94, college: S.Dakota Mines) with a double-double by scoring 36 points (!!!) and 14 rebounds and his fellow American import David Shepard (201-94, college: Lindenwood-Bellev.) scored 25 points. Five Hume City Broncos and four Devils players scored in double figures. Hume City Broncos maintains fifth position in League with 7-5 record. Loser Devils keep the seventh place with nine games lost. Hume City Broncos will face higher ranked Magic (#3) in Hawthorn in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Devils will play on the road against Stingrays (#8) in Geelong and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
