Ahmet Gueye (203-C/F-82, college: Hawaii, 10 rebounds) and Bart Samaey (199-C-87, 13 rebounds) controlled airspace for BS Waregem. The young players of Essor Charleroi were only able to reduce the gap in the last quarter but it was too late.

Gembo BBC vs. Excelsior Brussels: 89-82
Only seven Excelsior players showed up in Borgerhout: Emma Mampuya (back), Stephane Pelle (knee), Joris De Schepper (thigh) and Jonathan Kabungu (also knee) were injured. Boosted by their Belgian Cup win against the Giants last week, Gembo digged a gap after 12 minutes (27-20) but, thanks to an excellent reaction by Excelsior in the third quarter (5/9 from three-point range in this period), the game completely changed afterwards (59-71 after 32 minutes). The end of the game was very hard for very tired Excelsior players and Gembo benefited from this situation. The scoreboard showed 75-75 with five minutes left on the clock. Gembo's shooter Domien Loubry (186-G-85) hit important three-pointers in the final quarter and the home team eventually recorded a new win. Special mention to Nick Verrept (192-SF-80, 22 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals), Xavier Collette (185-PG-85, agency: LBM Management, 16 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 1 steal) and Jeroen Van Haevermaet (192-SG-86, 16 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists) for the losing side. Score evolution: 20-17, 44-39, 59-66 and 89-82. Best scorers: Gembo: D. Loubry 15. Excelsior: X. Collette 16, N. Verrept 22, J. Van Haevermaet 16, G. De Pooter 8, L. Maesfrancx 6, S. Semijejero 14.
Sint-Niklase Condors vs. Sint-Jan Antwerp: 66-74
After their good game of last week against Belfius Mons Hainaut in Belgian Cup competition (loss 61-76 despite still leading 36-34 at the half), the Condors hoped to be able to challenge Sint-Jan. After a close start, the Jantjes reached a larger lead: 14-30. Brett Hartshorne (199-C/F-92) and Naim El Kounchar (191-G-94) led the visitors to 29-53 at half-time. Sebastien Vermeulen (207-F/C-81) and Elias Lasisi (192-G/F-92) reacted strongly for the Condors after the break but Sint-Jan's Senne Geukens (190-G-83) played his role of leader very well too and hit important baskets to give his team a large advantage at 42-68. The Condors could not come closer to 8 points on the final buzzer. Score at the half: 29-53 Best scorers: Condors: S. De Bock 8, E. Lasisi 13, B. Bogaert 5, J.-P. De Decker 10, S. Vermeulen 16, N. Maris 8, J. Gerlo 6. Sint-Jan: B. Hartshorne 13, S. Geukens 23, B. Raes 9, Anthonis 2, N. El Kounchar 10, Kesteloot 6, A. Druwez 11.
BasKet Tongeren vs. Gent Dragons: 91-88 (after OT)
After a thrilling game and one overtime at the Pibohal in Tongeren, BasKet Tongeren eventually won this game on the buzzer. With 17" to go in the overtime, Jeroen Eskens (190-G-81) hit a crucial three pointer to give the local team a 89-88 lead. After a turnover and an easy lay-up by Jean Delva (197-F/G-87), the final score was 91-88. The Dragons, thanks to Faycal Lait (190-G-88, agency: Promotex) from long range, made 82-82 although BasKet Tongeren had been in front by 11 points: 82-71. The Dragons earned an extra chance to avoid going to overtime in the final seconds of the fourth quarter. This was not sufficient: Dragon star Thomas Van De Vondel (194-F/G-80) was sent to the bench after being called a fifth foul at 84-82 in OT and the guys of BasKet Tongeren played better in their last offensive plays.

Score evolution: 30-28, 50-50, 70-62, 82-82 and 91-88.
Kangoeroes Boom vs. Cuva Houthalen: 102-92
The visitors from Province Limburg trailed behind in the end of the second quarter. Kangoeroes looked like they could have lost their advantage in the third quarter but eventually reacted well in the fourth quarter. Tremendous work by Sebastien Bellin (205-C-78, college: Oakland) as a true leader, Wim Dobbelaere (198-F/C-85) and Mitchel Gorremans (191-G/F-85) for the home team. Final score: 102-92.

CEP Fleurus vs. Port of Anwterp Giants II: 85-71
CEP Fleurus -- still without Kevin Jonniaux (198-G-83), injured -- played well against a nice and young team of Antwerp Giants II. Dennis Donkor (194-G/F-91) started in a impressive way for the visitors but could not keep the same tempo through the whole game. To be mentioned: the great offensive game of Amaury Marion (196-F-91) and again a great performance by the young talent Louis Hazard (199-F-94). Although it should be confirmed, Belgo-Moroccan player Karim Nesba (188-G-86, agency: Promotex, college: Auburn-Montgomery, see interview by Ozell Wells for Eurobasket.com here) could be hired by CEP Fleurus to replace Mitchel Kouwijzer (190-G-87, agency: Court Side) who left the club.
