The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of E.C. Windbreakers (1-1) in Johannesburg on Saturday night. Visitors were rolled over by Magic (3-0) 112-51. Magic is looking forward to face Marlins (#8) in Kwazulu in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. E.C. Windbreakers will have a break next round.
Important game to mention about took place in Johannesburg. Mountaineers (3-0) saved a 3-point victory on the road edging Panthers (4-1) 62-59 on Saturday evening. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
Panthers (4-1) had no problems winning another game on Friday. This time they crushed Warriors (1-1) 96-50. Panthers will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Warriors will play against Rhinos (#9) in Mbombela and hope to win that game.

In the last two games of round 3 Free State W. destroyed NW Eagles on the opponent's court 69-44. Winless NW Eagles were outscored by Mpumalanga R. in a home game 44-75.

NW Eagles - Free State W. 44-69

Rather expected game when Eagles (0-6) were crushed at home by Warriors (1-1) 69-44 on Saturday. Warriors will meet Rhinos (#9) in the next round. Eagles will have a break next round.
