The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team, favorites losing the games, games ending by tiny margin and even winless team recording their first victory.

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of Siroki Primorka (5-1) in Bijeljina on Saturday night. Visitors were defeated by ninth ranked Gradjanski (3-3) 82-68. The hosts trailed by 6 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 5-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 82-68. Gradjanski forced 23 Siroki Primorka turnovers. 28 personal fouls committed by Siroki Primorka helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of Serbian swingman Milos Markovic (201-84, agency: 011 Sports) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 22 points and 13 rebounds. Montenegrin center Dragomir Marojevic (207-81) contributed with 17 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. Slovenian point guard Jan Mocnik (178-87) answered with 20 points and 9 assists for Siroki Primorka. Siroki Primorka's coach Romeo Bilinovac rotated ten players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Gradjanski moved-up to eighth place in I. Siroki Primorka at the other side keeps the seventh position with one game lost. Gradjanski are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Leotar (#11) in Trebinje in the next round. Siroki Primorka will play at home against Bosna-Royal (#3) and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Kakanj. Fourth ranked Bosna-Royal (4-3) saved a 3-point victory on the road edging bottom-ranked Kakanj (0-7) 76-73 on Saturday evening. It was a great evening for the former international guard Marko Josilo (200-92) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 16 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists. Vladimir Djordjevic helped adding 15 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists. At the losing side Croatian swingman Zeljko Palavra (194-82) responded with 21 points and 5 rebounds. Bosna-Royal moved-up to third place in I. Kakanj at the other side still closes the standings with seven games lost. Bosna-Royal will play against Siroki Primorka (#7) in Siroki Brijeg in the next round. Kakanj will play on the road against the league's leader Igokea in Aleksandrovac and hopes to get finally their first victory.
An interesting game for Sloboda Tuzla (4-3) which hosted in Tuzla their biggest opponent Zrinjski HT (5-2). Third ranked Sloboda Tuzla managed to get a 11-point victory 90-79. It was an exceptional evening for Almir Hasandic who led the winners and scored 19 points and 4 assists. Sloboda Tuzla's coach Velimir Gasic used entire bench and allowed the starting five to rest. Torrion Brummitt came up with 20 points and 7 rebounds for Zrinjski HT in the defeat. Despite that victory Sloboda Tuzla went down to fourth position (I) due to points difference. Loser Zrinjski HT keeps the second place with two games lost. Sloboda Tuzla will meet higher ranked Bosna-Royal (#3) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Zrinjski HT will play against Spars Sarajevo and hope to secure a win.
