Cyril Agrippine led the scores for Dawgz with 17 points.

Beau Vallon Heat returned to winning ways with a victory against RC Dynamics. Robert Leon scored a game-high 40 points to lead all scores in a 96-68 win for the Heat.

It was in the third quarter that Beau Vallon Heat managed to break away from their opponents when they opened up a 22-point lead which proved too much for Dynamics to chase.
Mamadou Diallo led the scoring for Dynamics with 18 points, while Kenneth Domingue added 11.

Defending champions PLS Hawks had a tough time against Angels but managed to get the win in an 82-73 victory.
