The biggest surprise of round 6 in NBL was guest Rilski Sportist's (4-2) road victory over one of their biggest challengers Euroins Cherno More (3-3) 86-73 on Sunday evening. It was a key game for the second position in the league. The game was mostly controlled by Rilski Sportist. Euroins Cherno More managed to win second period 21-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The best player for the winners was international Hristo Zahariev (197-90) who scored 24 points and 4 assists. Serbian guard Branko Mirkovic (190-82, agency: Global Sports Plaza) chipped in 15 points, 7 assists and 5 steals. At the other side the best for losing team was the former international point guard Asen Velikov (185-86) who recorded a double-double by scoring 14 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists. Euroins Cherno More's coach rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Rilski Sportist have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Levski Sofia and Tundja Yambol. Euroins Cherno More at the other side dropped to the fifth position with three games lost. They share it with Chernomorets. Rilski Sportist is looking forward to face Tundja Yambol (#3) at home in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Euroins Cherno More will play against Levski Sofia and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Burgas. Top-ranked Lukoil Academik faced 4th ranked Chernomorets. Guests from Sofia (6-0) smashed host Chernomorets (3-3) 121-61. It was a good game for American center Darryl Watkins (211-84, college: Syracuse) who led his team to a victory with 21 points and 8 rebounds. Pavel Marinov contributed with 21 points (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field) for the winners. American center James Tyler (218-88) replied with 23 points and 6 rebounds for Chernomorets. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Undefeated Lukoil Academik have an impressive six-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 6-0 record. Chernomorets at the other side dropped to the fifth place with three games lost. They share the position with Cherno More. Lukoil Academik will play against Beroe (#8) in Stara Zagora in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Chernomorets will play on the road against Spartak Pleven and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked U20 (0-6) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 99-51 loss to fifth ranked Levski Sofia (4-2) in Sofia on Saturday evening. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. Ventsislav Petkov scored 14 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists to lead the charge for the winners. The best for the losing side was Tencho Tenchev with 14 points. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Levski Sofia moved-up to second place, which they share with Tundja Yambol and Rilski Sportist. Newly promoted U20 still closes the standings with six games lost. Levski Sofia will meet at home Euroins Cherno More (#5) in the next round. U20 will play against Balkan (#7) in Botevgrad and hopes to get finally their first victory.

In the last two games of round 6 Balkan defeated Beroe in Botevgrad 86-79. Tundja Yambol smashed Spartak Pleven at home 92-68.


Cherno More - Rilski Sportist 73-86

Five Rilski Sportist and four Euroins Cherno More players scored in double figures. Euroins Cherno More's coach rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Rilski Sportist have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Levski Sofia and Tundja Yambol. Euroins Cherno More at the other side dropped to the fifth position with three games lost. They share it with Chernomorets.

Beroe - Balkan 79-86

We cannot really consider it an upset in the game between close teams in Stara Zagora where 7th ranked Beroe (2-3) was defeated by eighth ranked Balkan (3-4) 86-79 on Saturday. Balkan forced 20 Beroe turnovers. Brazilian center Atila Santos (208-83, college: Minnesota St., agency: Warren Sports International) scored 19 points and 9 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and international Ivan Lilov (196-88) chipped in 14 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. Five Balkan players scored in double figures. The best for the losing side was American guard Will Walker (183, college: De Paul) with a double-double by scoring 24 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists and the former international forward Atanas Radev (200-81) produced a double-double by scoring 10 points, 13 rebounds and 5 assists. Beroe's coach Georgi Mladenov tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Balkan moved-up to seventh place. Newly promoted Beroe dropped to the eighth position with three games lost. Balkan will meet at home bottom-ranked U20 (#10) in the next round. Beroe will play against the league's leader Lukoil Academik where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.

Balkan: A.Santos 19+9reb+2ast, U.Petrovic 15+5reb+1ast, I.Lilov 14+9reb+4ast, J.Bozov 12+5reb+6ast, T.Todorov 11+5reb, J.Hunt 7+3reb+2ast

U20 - Levski Sofia 51-99

Bottom-ranked U20 (0-6) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 99-51 loss to fifth ranked Levski Sofia (4-2) in Sofia on Saturday evening. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. Levski Sofia dominated down low during the game scoring 40 of its points in the paint compared to U20's 16. Levski Sofia forced 23 U20 turnovers. They shot the lights out from three sinking 15 long-distance shots on high 68.2 percentage. Levski Sofia looked well-organized offensively handing out 28 assists. Guard Ventsislav Petkov (188-91) scored 14 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists to lead the charge for the winners and international guard Zlatin Georgiev (195-85) chipped in 21 points (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) during the contest. Five Levski Sofia players scored in double figures. The best for the losing side was naturalized Danish forward Tencho Tenchev (202-93, agency: Interperformances) with 14 points and forward Aleks Simeonov (200-93) scored 10 points and 5 assists. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Levski Sofia moved-up to second place, which they share with Tundja Yambol and Rilski Sportist. Newly promoted U20 still closes the standings with six games lost. Levski Sofia will meet at home Euroins Cherno More (#5) in the next round. U20 will play against Balkan (#7) in Botevgrad and hopes to get finally their first victory.

Tundja Yambol - Spartak Pleven 92-68

No shocking result in a game when fourth ranked Tundja Yambol (4-2) smashed at home 9th ranked Spartak Pleven (1-5) 92-68 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Tundja Yambol. Spartak Pleven managed to win third quarter 18-14. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Tundja Yambol dominated down low during the game scoring 60 of its points in the paint compared to Spartak Pleven's 16. Tundja Yambol forced 20 Spartak Pleven turnovers and outrebounded them 40-29 including 29 on the defensive glass. American forward Brian Ormon (201-84, college: Mountain St.) had a double-double by scoring 14 points and 11 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and guard Stoyo Cholakov (190-87) chipped in 12 points and 6 rebounds during the contest. Four Tundja Yambol players scored in double figures. The best for the losing side was power forward Dimitar Marintchechki (201-90, agency: Dynamics Global Management) with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 11 rebounds and guard Rosen Sofroniev (193-80) scored 18 points and 4 steals. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Tundja Yambol moved-up to second place, which they share with Levski Sofia and Rilski Sportist. Spartak Pleven lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the ninth position with five games lost. Tundja Yambol will meet league's second-placed Rilski Sportist in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Spartak Pleven will play against Chernomorets (#6) in Burgas.
Top scorers:
Tundja Yambol: B.Ormon 14+11reb+1ast, S.Govedarov 12+3ast, S.Cholakov 12+6reb, N.Milosevic 10+5reb, M.Durchev 10+1reb+2ast, I.Marchev 9+1reb+1ast

An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Burgas. Top-ranked Lukoil Academik faced 4th ranked Chernomorets. Guests from Sofia (6-0) smashed host Chernomorets (3-3) 121-61.

They dominated down low during the game scoring 76 of its points in the paint compared to Chernomorets' 34 and made 18-of-20 charity shots (90.0 percent) during the game. Lukoil Academik forced 25 Chernomorets turnovers and outrebounded them 40-27 including 29 on the defensive glass. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 34 assists comparing to just 11 passes made by Chernomorets' players. Lukoil Academik brought some defensive toughness making 8 blocks. It was a good game for American center Darryl Watkins (211-84, college: Syracuse) who led his team to a victory with 21 points and 8 rebounds. International Pavel Marinov (199-88, agency: Interperformances) contributed with 21 points (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field) for the winners. Five Lukoil Academik players scored in double figures. American center James Tyler (218-88) replied with 23 points and 6 rebounds and Bogdan Boev (196-82) added 16 points in the effort for Chernomorets.
