There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team, derby games and favorites losing the games. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Sharing Youth (3-1) at the home court on Wednesday night. Hosts were edged by KCC Lions (2-4) 57-56. KCC Lions outrebounded Sharing Youth 28-16 including a 21-9 advantage in defensive rebounds. It was a great evening for Brian Cucu who led his team to a victory scoring 16 points. Francis Mbuyi helped adding 8 points and 9 rebounds. KCC Lions' coach used entire bench in such tough game. The best for the losing side was center Stephan Otoa (-91) with 17 points. KCC Lions are looking forward to face City Oilers in Kampala in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Sharing Youth will play against Betway Power where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
Important game to mention about took place in Kampala. Sharing Youth (3-1) saved a 1-point victory on the road edging KIU Titans (4-1) 47-46 on Saturday evening. It was an exceptional evening for Francis Nitus who led the winners and scored 13 points and 6 rebounds. Stephan Otoa accounted for 7 points and 8 rebounds. Forward Samuel Agutu (193-92) came up with 14 points and 5 rebounds for KIU Titans in the defeat. KIU Titans' coach tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Sharing Youth will play against Betway Power in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. KIU Titans will play against JKL Dolphins and hope to get back on the winning track.
Another exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Kampala: City Oilers (#3) and Charging Rhinos (#8). City Oilers (4-1) crushed visiting Charging Rhinos (1-4) by 18 points 66-48. City Oilers will meet at home KCC Lions (#7) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Charging Rhinos' supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Kampala to the arena Pemba Warriors.
Another exciting game was again a derby between two teams from Kampala: City Oilers (#3) and Pemba Warriors (#6). Pemba Warriors were defeated at home 51-58 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. It was a good game for Landry Ndikumana who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 13 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. City Oilers' next round opponent will be KCC Lions (#7) which should be theoretically an easy game. Pemba Warriors will play against JKL Dolphins and hope to win that game.
Betway Power (5-0) had no problems winning another game on Wednesday. This time they crushed Our Saviour (4-2) 71-36. It was a great evening for Stephen Wundi who led his team to a victory scoring 15 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Betway Power will face Sharing Youth (#5) in the next round. Our Saviour will play against Ndejje and hope to win that game.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 3: Betway Power won against Pemba Warriors on the opponent's court 82-78. Our Saviour managed to outperform KCC Lions in a home game 63-49. Betway Power rolled over KCC Lions on the road 89-60. Charging Rhinos were defeated by Our Saviour on its own court 59-66.
