There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Ryukyu GK as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Ryukyu GK defeated 3rd placed Toyota Alvark in Okinawa 71-56.

American forward Josh Scott (208-93, college: Colorado, agency: Pensack Sports) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 11 rebounds for the winners and international forward Ira Brown (193-82, college: Gonzaga) chipped in 9 points and 8 rebounds.
