Pinheiros Sao Paolo in a victory against the closely-ranked Cerrado (7-22) 71-63 in the Brazilian NBB in Friday night's game. He scored only 2 points in 8 minutes on the court. E.C. Pinheiros Sao Paolo (7-22) is placed 13th in the NBB. It was his team's first victory after eleven consecutive loses. They will play only one more game in the Regular Season.

Keshun Sherrill (5'9''-PG-94, graduated '17, plays in Turkey) led Kagitspor to a 2-point victory over the closely-ranked Akhisar Bld (14-12) 82-80 in the Turkish TBL (second division) last Saturday.

There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. It's Sherrill's first season with the team. Sherrill has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages 22.6ppg, 3.4rpg, 4.3apg and 1.3spg.
