The first game of Round 11 saw Adroit (5-6) keeping SAFSA (0-11) winless throughout the entire season with a 99-65 victory. Kenneth Smith (195-G/F-87, college: Lourdes) led Adroit with 40 points and 5 rebounds, including 7 three-pointers. Sashi Pillay added 16 points and 10 rebounds in the win. Adroit jumped on SAFSA right from the outset, holding a 35-8 lead at the end of the first quarter. While SAFSA tried to keep the score differential in check, Adroit managed to hold onto a big lead for the rest of the game as they cruise to a big win. With this win, Adroit has clinched the 6th seed in the Elite 8 playoffs bracket.
Game 2: Proform Basketball 82 - Eunos United 61
Eunos United's (3-8) playoffs hopes ended as Proform (5-6) reversed their lacklustre first half of a season to claim the 5th seed and a big 82-61 win. Singaporean-born Navin Crump continued his good performance, leading Proform with 27 points on 11 for 14 shooting. Noel Pollock (185-PG-88) had 8 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists in the win. Proform built a 7-point lead at the end of the 1st quarter, and it grew to double-digits Pete Miljkovic's three with 7 minutes and 53 seconds remaining. This was part of an 11-nothing run that saw Proform eventually build a 43-28 lead at the half. Eunos cut the lead down to 9 on Vijay Ragaven's layup with 2 minutes left in the third, but that would be the closest Eunos would get as Proform closed the game with a 24-15 4th quarter. With this win, Proform has booked an Elite 8 Playoff outing with Supras, GHUB and SG Basketball, ending the regular season at 5th place.
Singapore Supras (11-0) ended their season undefeated, scrapping past a gutsy Tagawa basketball club (4-7) that gave them their narrowest win of the season at 63-71. Without Jeffers Kyle (207-C-85, college: Oregon St.), Singapore Supras looked like a different team as Tagawa managed 34 points in the paint. Supras started the first quarter strong to go up 24-14, but Tagawa would stick their game plan and kept it close, ending the half 28-41. Cheong Wei Chum's jumpshot would cut Supras lead down to 8 with 1 minute and 32 seconds remaining as Tagawa battled for their life to stay in playoff contention. The lead was down to just 6 points with 2 minutes remaining as Darren Ng of Tagawa hit a jumpshot, but Jemell Swafford (196-F-85, college: Cal.Baptist) would quickly respond with a fouled in layup to secure the win. Jemell Swafford led Supras with 22 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists, while Thomas Klemm (200-F-81) added 21 points and 5 rebounds. Tagawa would lose the game and drop out of the Playoff Bracket with an identical record but a loss to SG Basketball.
Game 4: SKC 65 - SG Basketball 89
SG Basketball (4-7) successfully booked a place in the playoffs with a 89-65 win over SKC (2-9). SKC led at the end of the first quarter 16-12, but SG Basketball would take the lead 31-30 with 42 seconds left in the first half on Chong Ming Xuan's layup. SG Basketball would pull the scoreline apart with a 32-16 third quarter and cruise to the win. Lim Shengyu (192-F/C-90) led SG Basketball with 33 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists, while Shaun Lim had 11 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists for SG Basketball. Gerald Toh led SKC with 18 points and 5 rebounds, but it was not enough to help his team end the season on a high. SG Basketball is now at 8th place and will play Singapore Supras, GHUB and Proform Basketball in the Playoff Round.
The loss of Amir Boucenna over a broken leg was not a problem for the defending champions Falcons (10-1) as they continued they stellar performance, dropping the Chargers (5-6) 69-51 to finish the season at 2nd place. Burrage Kannon (190-G-90, college: UTSA) had 30 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists while Damien Gillespie added 14 points in the win. The Falcons held a small 35-29 lead over the Chargers at the end of the first half, but defense would be the storyline as they limited the Chargers to just 6 points in the third quarter. The Chargers would suffer from the lack of offensive power with their leading scorer William Sanborn (187-G-89, college: Ramapo) managing only 20 points, but on 6 for 25 shooting. The Falcons would hold on for the win, and book a place with last year's finalist AMK Bravehearts, Adroit and another meeting with the Chargers in the playoffs.
The Battle of the 3rd Seed was surprisingly a one-sided affair as the Bravehearts ended their season on a high note and demolished GHUB 99-68 for their 6th consecutive win. Tyson Lawrence (193-G-88, college: CS San Bernar.) led his team with a season-high 31 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists. Brewer Tre (198-G-90, college: CS San Bernar.) contributed 25 points and 8 assists, and Marshall Tyrone (203-C-92, college: Colorado St.-Pueblo) had 19 points and 6 rebounds in the resounding win. There was no question regarding the importance of this game with playoff positions at stake, but the Bravehearts jumped right in with intensity and tenacity right from the first quarter. Defense was the key as GHUB's dynamic duo were kept in check. Jonathan Hart (196-F, college: Barton, NC) was limited to just 4 of 21 shooting, while Justin Monroe (193-G-87, college: Morehouse) who still managed 33 points was forced into committing 7 turnovers. The biggest lead of the game was 36 points, as Tyson Lawrence sinked a shot early in the 4th and there was no question that this game belonged to the Bravehearts. The Bravehearts have booked a place with Falcons, Adroit and Zeagues Chargers in Group B of the Elite 8 Playoffs.

For the fourth straight time, the Singapore Slingers found a way to outplay the defending champions Westports Malaysia Dragons. On Friday night, the Slingers got a hard-earned overtime 112-110 win over the Dragons at the House of Champions, Gem-In Mall, in Cyberjaya, Malaysia. Singapore's two World imports Xavier Alexander (198-G-88, college: S.Nazarene) and Justin Howard (209-C-81, college: Mercer) powered their way into monster numbers in the victory. Howard tallied 32 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 assists. Alexander meanwhile put up 34 points, even going 16-for-22 from the line, and pulled down 15 rebounds. He also did damage on the defensive end with 6 steals. In another highly-contested and certainly action-packed game, both teams displayed incredible grit and fortitude. Alexander rescued the Slingers from the jaws of defeat as he forced the overtime period. He sank three-free throws and got two steals in the overtime period but it was Wei Long Wong (187-G-88) who sealed the win after making two free throws with 20 seconds left to extend their lead 112-108. 'We came out with a team spirt. We full court pressed them. We got into our game,' Slingers head coach Neo Beng Siang said. The Dragons had a 10-point lead late in the second period thanks largely to their latest addition, Kiwi Gardner (170-PG-93, college: Providence). The point guard came out firing and the Dragons played inspired as they had a 52-43 advantage heading into halftime. All momentum was in favor of the Dragons until the Slingers finally woke up in the third period. Slingers employed pressure defense to slow down Kiwi Gardner and executed better offensively. As a result, they overwhelmed the Dragons in the third period, outscoring them, 32-16. The tide shifted towards the visiting team heading into the final frame. Singapore even mounted an 8-point lead, 88-80, in the last six minutes of the game. However, the Dragons had a run of their own to cut down the deficit. The Slingers have had a couple of games this season wherein they would blow leads in the dying minutes. In their previous game, they even allowed the Hong Kong Eastern Long Lions to come out of a 20-point hole. 'Stamina wise, we are undermanned,' explained coach Siang. 'We need to get ourselves adjusted to that.' Malaysia got the lead momentarily off of Skylar Spencer (208-F/C-94, college: San Diego St.)'s free throws. Fortunately for the Slingers, Alexander was there to save them, hitting a tough shot underneath the basket with three seconds left to force overtime. In the extra session, the Slingers were able to execute on both ends of the floor to seal the win. Kiwi Gardner, the Dragons' latest recruit, tried valiantly to carry his team. He finished with 37 points, including 5 three-pointers, 8 assists, and 7 steals in his ABL debut. He suffered cramps early in the fourth quarter and was in-and-out of their lineup in the closing moments of overtime. 'Kiwi Gardner today killed us. Luckily, he's not fit right now. But he's a good insert for the KL Dragons,' coach Siang commended. 'He's amazing. He got 37 points in his first game. We expected him to go for 40 because we heard about him. He's quick, he's fast.' After playing his career game in their last win, Ng Han Bin had another good shooting night as he made 4 of his 6 triples and scored 13 points. Wei Long and Leon Kwek combined for 20 points. For Westports Malaysia, Spencer and Joshua Munzon served as Kiwi Gardner's main back-ups. The World import finished with 27 points and 16 rebounds while the Heritage had 19 points and 4 steals but he was not able to finish the games as he fouled out in the extra period. The Slingers improve to a 10-3 record with this win. They've now finished their season series with both the Dragons and the Long Lions. 'The most important thing for us is we're trying to get us is trying to get the home-court advantage,' the coach concluded. Courtesy of: aseanbasketballleague.com
