Manati tried to keep their season alive at home on Tuesday and did manage to force overtime before losing 74-67. Ashley Shields tried to carry the hosts, but she could not match Mayaguez’s import duo on her own. Amanda Thompson and Becca Tobin completely controlled the inside as Tobin, in particular, put up massive numbers to send the team into the Semifinals.

Aguada had a tough test to extend their series on Wednesday, but got the job done on the road 73-64 over Santurce. Tayra Melendez may have had the best performance of her rookie season as she only missed a single field attempt on her way to 31 points on only 14 attempts. The domestic dominance of the visitors helped offset both imports having great games for the hosts as Mariah King emerged alongside the always-reliable Kayla Thornton. The combined domestic scoring output for Santurce was easily beaten by Aguada even after excluding Melendez’s contributions. The series will move back to Aguada on Friday for the deciding fifth game.
