The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Mackay Meteors as it allowed them to take a leadership position in League. Mackay Meteors smashed 5th ranked Phoenix at home 111-89. Mackay Meteors looked well-organized offensively handing out 36 assists comparing to just 9 passes made by Phoenix's players. American forward Bryce Washington (198-96, college: La-Lafayette) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 27 points, 14 rebounds and 5 assists. Guard Chris Cedar (188-88) contributed with 17 points, 7 rebounds and 11 assists for the winners. Mackay Meteors' coach felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American forward Eric McAlister (204-90, college: Stony Brook) replied with a double-double by scoring 40 points (!!!) and 15 rebounds for Phoenix. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Phoenix at the other side dropped to the sixth place with two games lost. Phoenix will play next round against South West Metro Pirates trying to get back on the winning streak. Mackay Meteors will try to continue on its current victory against thirteenth ranked Seahawks in Runaway Bay.
Leading Ballarat Miners (10-2) recorded its second loss in Seaford. Visitors were defeated by tenth ranked Frankston Blues (7-6) 87-80. American guard Damon Bozeman (190, college: Saginaw Valley) scored 27 points to lead the charge for the winners and Lachlan Barker chipped in 18 points and 5 rebounds during the contest. Frankston Blues' coach allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Fijian forward Joshua Fox (198-94, college: UC Davis, agency: MKP Management) responded with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 11 rebounds. Frankston Blues moved-up to seventh place in League. Ballarat Miners at the other side still keep top position with two games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Cavaliers (11-3) against fourth ranked Magic (9-5) on Sunday night. Visiting Cavaliers were crushed by Magic in Hawthorn 104-78. Jack Barry notched 34 points (!!!), 6 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the effort. Coach 's team controlled all game and the coach could let to play 11 players and allowed the starting five to rest. Even 15 points by Raheem Lemons did not help to save the game for Cavaliers. Magic maintains fourth position in League with 9-5 record. Loser Cavaliers keep the second place with three games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
Very important is a home loss of third ranked Forestville Eagles (9-3) against fourth ranked North Adelaide Rockets (10-5) on Sunday night. Host Forestville Eagles were defeated by North Adelaide Rockets in Goodwood 106-91. The best player for the winners was Alexander Starling who had a double-double by scoring 31 points, 14 rebounds and 5 assists. North Adelaide Rockets moved-up to third place in League. Forestville Eagles at the other side dropped to the fourth position with three games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
Very important is a home loss of third ranked Flames (10-5) against tenth ranked Tigers (7-10) on Friday night. Host Flames were defeated by Tigers in Rockingham 93-83. Damien Scott orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 17 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists. Tigers maintains tenth position in League with 7-10 record.
