Arkadia Lions' fans can finally celebrate the first win of their team after ten consecutive loses. The victory is especially important as it came on the road game in St.Polten, where they defeated St.Polten (2-9) 75-69 on Saturday. The guests trailed by 2 points after three quarters before their 25-17 charge, which allowed them to win the game. 30 personal fouls committed by St.Polten helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a good game for Montenegrin power forward Radosav Spasojevic (204-92, agency: Interperformances) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 12 rebounds. Argentinian-Italian center Matias Bortolin (205-93, agency: Interperformances) contributed with 12 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners. Guard Thomas Csebits (192-89) replied with 13 points and 5 assists for St.Polten. Arkadia Lions maintains eleventh position with 1-10 record. St.Polten at the other side keeps the tenth place with nine games lost. Arkadia Lions are looking forward to face higher ranked Gussing Knights (#7) at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. St.Polten will play against the league's leader BC Vienna where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
The game in Wels was also worth to mention about. 5th ranked Furstenfeld Panthers (5-6) played at the court of sixth ranked Raiffeisen Wels (6-5). Raiffeisen Wels defeated Furstenfeld Panthers 91-81.
