The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position and favorites losing the games. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

B League round 13 caused change at the leadership position. Third defeat of league's leader Chiba Jets (10-3) against second ranked Tochigi Brex (11-2) 73-61 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the nine-game winning streak of Chiba Jets. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Tochigi Brex forced 19 Chiba Jets turnovers. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Ryan Rossiter (204-89, college: Siena) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 17 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists. Guard Seiji Ikaruga (185-94) contributed with 20 points for the winners. Naturalized American forward Michael Parker (202-81, college: Evergreen St.) answered with 17 points and 8 rebounds for Chiba Jets. Tochigi Brex keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Nagoya DD. Chiba Jets at the other side dropped to the second place with three games lost. They share the position with Ryukyu GK. They were replaced at the leadership position by Tochigi Brex. Chiba Jets will play next round against strong Ryukyu GK trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Tochigi Brex will try to continue on its current victory against sixth ranked Fukuoka Rizing at home.
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Diamond Dolphins as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Diamond Dolphins defeated 5th ranked Shiga L-Stars in Nagoya 72-56. American Craig Brackins (208-87, college: Iowa St.) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 16 points, 13 rebounds and 4 blocks for the winners and Justin Burrell chipped in 18 points and 6 rebounds. At the losing side Nigerian-American power forward Gani Lawal (206-88, college: Georgia Tech, agency: Octagon Europe) responded with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 14 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Diamond Dolphins (11-2) have an impressive series of nine victories in a row. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Tochigi Brex. Shiga L-Stars at the other side keep the fifth place with ten games lost. They share the position with 3 other teams. Shiga L-Stars will play next round against strong Toyama Grouses trying to get back on the winning streak.

Josh Scott came up with a double-double by scoring 23 points and 13 rebounds for Ryukyu GK in the defeat. Ryukyu GK's coach Norio Sassa rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Newly promoted Fukuoka Rizing maintains sixth place with 2-11 record. Loser Ryukyu GK dropped to the second position with three games lost. They share it with Chiba Jets. Fukuoka Rizing will meet league's leader Tochigi Brex on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Ryukyu GK will play against the league's second-placed Chiba Jets and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
We should not miss a road victory of third ranked Toshiba Thunders (8-5) over 4th placed Toyama Grouses (7-6) 87-78. Nick Fazekas fired 27 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners.
