Coincidentally all hosts won their games. The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team and extra overtimes.

Group A
Galil Gilboa - Kumanovo 81-61

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of FYR Macedonian Kumanovo 2009 (1-1) on the court of leader Israeli Galil Gilboa on Wednesday night. Visitors were rolled over by Galil Gilboa 81-61. The game was mostly controlled by Galil Gilboa. Kumanovo 2009 managed to win second period 27-24. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Galil Gilboa dominated down low during the game scoring 48 of its points in the paint compared to Kumanovo 2009's 24. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists comparing to just 8 passes made by Kumanovo 2009's players. The best player for the winners was American forward Brandon Hunter (201-80, college: Ohio) who scored 14 points and 8 rebounds. Center Yaniv Green (204-80, agency: Z.A.G. - Law Offices) chipped in 8 points and 11 rebounds. Four Galil Gilboa players scored in double figures. Galil Gilboa's coach Lior Lubin used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the other side the best for losing team was guard Aleksandar Kostoski (186-88, agency: Global Sports Plaza) who recorded 25 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists and Serbian center Uros Lukovic (212-89) added 16 points and 11 rebounds respectively. Galil Gilboa will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Kumanovo 2009 will play at home against Djuro Djakovic in Slavonski Brod and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
