In pool A, team Ruks are the slim leaders on 10 points with team Kick Ass hot on their heels with 9 points and Party Rock on 8.
Rucks managed to keep opponents OKA at arms length on Wednesday night to win the encounter 82-69.
Kick Ass did just that when they faced Party Rock in what was a hotly contested game Kick Ass managed to edge out Party Rock 80-70.
The final pool A match on the night was a tit-for-tat affair as TKV2 and Tokoroa pride battled hard to take the upper hand with TKV2 having the extra gas to see them over the line to beat Tokoroa Pride 78-75.
In pool B the BCI Real Steel team have risen up the ranks over the 9 weeks of games to be the shared leader at the top of the table with TKV1 and WACKeez all on 10 points each.
Fiji Me are sitting pretty with 8 points while the ever dangerous Aremango Sharks lurk behind Fiji Me on 6 points while the fun Turtles Fani team sit on 3 points.
Despite a valiant effort the Aremango Sharks couldnt overcome a spirited Fiji Me side who won the close battle 85-83.
WACKeez cruised in with a win by default against Turtles Fani while the BCI Real Steel showed their muscle against TKV1 to win 83-75.
