Robert Loe
There were just three rounds played in Regular Season of NBL and we can clearly see which teams will fight for top positions and which will try to avoid bottom places. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Sharks (2-1) in Wellington on Thursday night. Visitors were rolled over by Saints (4-0) 126-102. They made 19-of-19 free shots (100 percent !!!) during the game. It was a good game for the former international forward Robert Loe (211-91, college: St.Louis) who led his team to a victory with 24 points and 7 rebounds. International guard Shea Ili (184-92) contributed with 23 points and 6 assists for the winners. Forward Dominique Kelman-Poto (201-94, college: Adelphi) answered with 27 points (on 12-of-15 shooting from the field) for Sharks. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Saints are looking forward to face Huskies (#5) in Hobart in the next round. Sharks will play on the road against Jets in Palmerston North and are hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
An interesting game for Saints (4-0) which played road game in Christchurch against Rams (2-2). Saints managed to get a 13-point victory 80-67. It was a great evening for the former international forward Robert Loe (211-91, college: St.Louis) who led his team to a victory scoring 13 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Leon Henry helped adding 20 points and 5 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). The best for the losing side was American forward Isaiah Wilkins (203-95, college: Virginia) with 18 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Rams' coach rotated twelve players in this game, but that didn't help. Saints will play against Huskies (#5) in Hobart in the next round. Rams will play at home against Hawks and hope to get back on the winning track.
The game in New Plymouth was also quite interesting. Hawks (3-1) played at the court of Mountain Airs (0-3). Hawks managed to secure a 9-point victory 97-88 on Sunday. It was an exceptional evening for Angus Brandt who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 12 rebounds. Hawks' coach used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Kevin Foster came up with 37 points (!!!) for Mountain Airs in the defeat. Hawks will meet Rams (#6) in the next round. Mountain Airs will play against Sharks and hope to get finally their first victory.

In the last two games of round 3 winless Jets were beaten by Giants on the road 99-94. Huskies won against Rangers on its own court 84-68.

Forward Dominique Kelman-Poto (201-94, college: Adelphi) answered with 27 points (on 12-of-15 shooting from the field) and Australian guard Jarrad Weeks (185-89) added 21 points and 5 assists in the effort for Sharks. Both teams had five 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. Saints are looking forward to face Huskies (#5) in Hobart in the next round. Sharks will play on the road against Jets in Palmerston North and are hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
