    As outlined previously, only the 8 highest scoring winners progress to the quarter finals, which means @crossy misses out after his narrow low-scoring win!

    The highest score for the week went to @HEAVER with 1641.4 who beat @Rev by a whopping 596.9!
    The highest scoring loser was @nicksnow , scoring 1471.3, losing by 75.2 points to @Lano24
    The lowest scoring winner was Crossy, as mentioned above. Next closest was @Lethal who just snuck through to the Quarters.
    The lowest score for the week was 961.1 by @Jacob Doole
    The smallest margin was when @karlos beat @Esther by 16.3 pts.
    The largest margin was between HEAVER and rev, as mentioned above.

    The Quarter Finals will take place during next week's matchup. Please find the fixture below:

    Round 3 - Quarter Finals - Matchup 15
    @HEAVER PL - https://fantasy.espn.com/basketball/team?leagueId=23530&teamId=13 v @Lethal D1 - https://fantasy.espn.com/basketball/team?leagueId=10094&teamId=11
    G29: @stowie PL - https://fantasy.espn.com/basketball/team?leagueId=23530&teamId=21 v @James84 D2 - https://fantasy.espn.com/basketball/team?leagueId=10201&teamId=4
    G30: @Steve D1 - https://fantasy.espn.com/basketball/team?leagueId=10094&teamId=3 v @karlos D2 - https://fantasy.espn.com/basketball/team?leagueId=10201&teamId=2
    G31: @Lano24 D2 - https://fantasy.espn.com/basketball/team?leagueId=10201&teamId=13 v @anthak PL - https://fantasy.espn.com/basketball/team?leagueId=23530&teamId=1

    All four games have teams facing opponents from another league!
    We have some of our most experienced coaches remaining in the competition, with five of the eight having played all 13 TS seasons, and two of the others having both played 11 of the 13 seasons! The odd one out is @James84 who has only played 5 of our TS seasons, with this being his first season back after a two-year hiatus.

    There is a range of where these teams drafted, slightly skewed to the top of the draft, with four of the teams having picks in the top-4, and three having picks 9, 10 & 11, with myself right in the middle with pick 6.

    We have three teams remaining from each of Premier League and Division 2; with the other two from Division 1.

    Six of the teams are currently doing well in their league standings, but @stowie and @Lano24 are somewhat exceeding expectations to make it this far, given that they are currently 7th and 8th in their respective league standings!

    Good luck to all the remaining teams! I'm looking forward to finding out who gets through to the semis!
