Reuben Te
Rangi
Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

Seventh-ranked Jets (1-4) made lots of trouble for leader Saints (6-0) in Palmerston North on Saturday. The visitors from Wellington managed to secure only two-point victory 106-104. However their fans expected much easier game. Saints shot the lights out from three sinking 18 long-distance shots on high 51.4 percentage. The best player for the winners was the former international swingman Reuben Te-Rangi (198-94) who scored 26 points. International guard Shea Ili (184-92) chipped in 21 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. American forward Kuran Iverson (206-95, college: URI) produced a double-double by scoring 31 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists and 6 steals (was perfect 10-for-10 from the free throw line !!!) for the hosts. Undefeated Saints have an impressive series of six victories in a row. They maintain first place with 6-0 record. Jets at the other side dropped to the eighth position with four games lost. Saints are looking forward to face league's second-placed Sharks in Southland in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Jets will play at home against Hawks (#4) and are hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
Important game to mention about took place in Christchurch. Third ranked Rams (4-2) saved a 2-point victory at home edging 5th ranked Giants (3-3) 69-67 on Thursday evening. American forward Isaiah Wilkins (203-95, college: Virginia) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 10 rebounds. Emmett Naar contributed with 12 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Rams' coach allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. American guard Jordair Jett (185-91, college: St.Louis) answered with 18 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists for Giants. Rams maintains third place with 4-2 record having just two points less than leader Saints, which they share with Hawks. Giants at the other side keep the fifth position with three games lost. Rams will play against league's second-placed Sharks in Southland in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Giants will play on the road against Huskies in Hobart and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Mountain Airs (0-6) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 119-82 loss to fourth ranked Hawks (4-2) in Tamatea on Saturday evening. Brandon Bowman stepped up and scored 22 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Alonzo Burton responded with 18 points and 7 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Hawks moved-up to third place, which they share with Rams. Mountain Airs lost their sixth game in a row. They still close the standings with six games lost. Hawks will meet Jets (#8) in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. Mountain Airs will play against Rangers and hope to get finally their first victory.
