Goethaert
There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Eighth-ranked Melsele (8-11) made lots of trouble for fourth ranked Gembo BBC (14-5) on Saturday. The visitors from Borgerhout managed to secure only three-point victory 93-90. However their fans expected much easier game. The guests trailed by 4 points at the halftime before their 53-46 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Gembo BBC made 18-of-21 free shots (85.7 percent) during the game. The best player for the winners was guard Tomas Goethaert (183-83) who scored 23 points and 4 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Swingman Sam Renier (187-92) chipped in 18 points. Dutch power forward Patrick Hilliman (206-82, college: High Point) produced 16 points and 9 rebounds for the hosts. Gembo BBC moved-up to third place, which they share with Oxaco. Melsele lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the ninth position with 11 games lost. Gembo BBC is looking forward to face Ninane (#11) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Melsele will play against Soba in Antwerpen and is hoping to prove to their fans that they can break losing series.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Waregem (15-4) against eighth ranked Royal Brussels (9-10) on Sunday night. Visiting Waregem was defeated by Royal Brussels in Brussels 76-66. Power forward Stephane Moris (208-86, agency: Promotex) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 10 rebounds. Adam Hall contributed with 17 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists for the winners. Forward Thomas Foucart (192-84) replied with 12 points and 7 rebounds for Waregem. Waregem's coach Olivier Foucart rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Royal Brussels moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Giants B. Waregem at the other side keeps the second position with four games lost. Royal Brussels will play against bottom-ranked Gistel Oostende (#14) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Waregem will play against Ieper (#10) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Houthalen supposed to be also quite interesting. 5th ranked Soba (10-9) played at the court of sixth ranked Houthalen (11-8). Houthalen smashed Soba 83-53 on Sunday. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Soba. Worth to mention a great performance of Chiel Koonings who helped to win the game recording 21 points (perfect from downtown making all five shots). Amaury Marion responded with 13 points and 6 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Houthalen have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place. Loser Soba dropped to the sixth position with nine games lost. Houthalen will meet Ekeren (#13) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Soba will play against Melsele (#9) and hope to secure a win.

The winners were led by Geoffrey Hockins who scored that evening 17 points and 6 rebounds. RPC Anderlecht's coach Philippe Hoornaert used entire bench in such tough game. Newly promoted RPC Anderlecht maintains twelfth position with 5-13 record. Ekeren at the other side, also newcomer in the league, keeps the thirteenth place with 14 games lost. RPC Anderlecht's next round opponent will be higher ranked Giants B (#7) in Antwerp and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Ekeren will play at home against Houthalen (#5) and hope to win that game.
Fourteenth-ranked Gistel Oostende (4-15) made lots of trouble for third ranked Oxaco (14-5) in Boechout on Saturday. Oxaco managed to secure only three-point victory 101-98. However their fans expected much easier game. The best player for the winners was Nick Celis who scored 30 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists. Oxaco have a solid three-game winning streak.
