Gliddon
Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most important game in the last round took place in Christchurch between second ranked Hawks (3-2) and sixth ranked Rams (3-2) on Thursday night. Hawks were defeated by Rams in a tough game on the road 81-89. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Hawks. Rams forced 20 Hawks turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of Australian swingman Cameron Gliddon (197-89, college: Concordia Irvine) who helped to win the game recording 19 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists and the former international center Mike Karena (208-93, college: Wright St.) who added 23 points during the contest. Rams' coach used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side Australian center Angus Brandt (208-89, college: Oregon St.) responded with a double-double by scoring 23 points and 17 rebounds. Rams moved-up to third place, which they share with Hawks and Sharks. Rams is looking forward to face league's second-placed Giants in Stoke in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Hawks will play at home against Mountain Airs and are hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Sharks (3-2) against eighth ranked Jets (1-3) on Sunday night. Visiting Sharks were defeated by Jets in a tough game in Palmerston North 100-104. The winners were led by American swingman Wally Ellenson (198-94, college: Marquette) who scored that evening 33 points (!!!) and 7 rebounds and Daishon Knight supported him with 29 points and 4 assists. Even a double-double of 16 points and 16 rebounds by Australian swingman Todd Blanchfield (200-91) did not help to save the game for Sharks. Jets left bottom position moving up to seventh place. Defending champion Sharks dropped to the third position with two games lost. They share it with Hawks and Rams. Jets will play against league's leader Saints in Wellington in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Sharks will play on the road against Huskies in Hobart and hope to get back on the winning track.
NBL top team - Saints (5-0) added another victory to their record on Saturday. This time they beat sixth ranked Huskies (2-3) in Hobart 91-86. Shea Ili fired a double-double by scoring 25 points and 10 assists for the winners. Marcel Jones produced 28 points and 9 rebounds for lost side. Undefeated Saints have an impressive five-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 5-0 record. Newly promoted Huskies keep the sixth place with three games lost. Saints will meet Jets (#7) in the next round where they are favorite. Huskies will play against Sharks and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Mountain Airs (0-4) is still winless. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their fourth consecutive match to second ranked Sharks (3-2) 108-91. It was a very good performance for Jarrad Weeks who helped to win the game recording 33 points (!!!) and 6 assists. Mountain Airs' coach rotated ten players seeing no chance for a win. Despite that victory Sharks went down to third position due to points difference, which they share with Hawks and Rams. Mountain Airs at the other side still closes the standings with four games lost. Sharks' next round opponent will be Huskies (#6) in Hobart. Mountain Airs will play on the road against Rangers in Auckland and hope to get finally their first victory.
Fifth ranked Giants (3-1) crushed at home 7th ranked Rangers (1-4) by 18 points 95-77, which is the biggest margin this round on Saturday night. Worth to mention a quality performance of Rhys Vague who helped to win the game recording 19 points and 8 rebounds. Giants' coach used entire bench and allowed the starting five to rest. Giants moved-up to second place. Rangers lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the eighth position with four games lost. Giants will face Sharks (#4) in Southland in the next round. Rangers will play at home against Mountain Airs (#9) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
