There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in NBL. There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games.

The most surprising game was the first loss of undefeated Lukoil Academik (7-1) in Botevgrad on Saturday night. Visitors were defeated by fifth ranked Balkan (5-4) 72-63. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Lukoil Academik. The hosts started the game with a very strong first quarter 25-16. But Lukoil Academik won second period 20-15. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. It was a great shooting night for Balkan especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 61.5 percentage. Worth to mention a great performance of Brazilian center Atila Santos (208-83, college: Minnesota St., agency: Warren Sports International) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 17 points and 17 rebounds and international Ivan Lilov (196-88) who added 15 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. American swingman Devin Green (201-82, college: Hampton) responded with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 13 rebounds. Lukoil Academik's coach Marin Dokuzovski rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Balkan have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to fourth place. Defending champion Lukoil Academik still keeps top position with one game lost. Balkan are looking forward to face Spartak Pleven (#9) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. Lukoil Academik's supporters also look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Sofia U20.
Bottom-ranked U20 (0-8) is still winless. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their eighth consecutive match to sixth ranked Euroins Cherno More (4-4) 86-80. The winners were led by American guard Larry Hall (190-83, college: W.Oregon) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 12 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists and Nikolay Stoyanov supported him with 15 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 steals. Even a double-double of 27 points and 11 rebounds by forward Aleks Simeonov (200-93) did not help to save the game for U20. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Euroins Cherno More moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Tundja Yambol. Newly promoted U20 still closes the standings with eight games lost. Euroins Cherno More will play against Tundja Yambol (#6) at home in the next round. U20's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Sofia to the arena Lukoil Academik.
The game in Burgas was also quite interesting. Second ranked Rilski Sportist (6-2) played at the court of 8th ranked Chernomorets (3-5). Rilski Sportist managed to secure a 8-point victory 101-93 on Sunday. The best player for the winners was Branko Mirkovic who scored 25 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists. James Tyler produced a double-double by scoring 26 points and 16 rebounds for the hosts. Rilski Sportist have an impressive six-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 6-2 record behind leader Lukoil Academik, which they share with Levski Sofia. Chernomorets lost third consecutive game. They keep the eighth place with five games lost. Rilski Sportist will meet at home Beroe (#7) in the next round where they are favorite. Chernomorets will play against Levski Sofia and hope to secure a win.
The game in Yambol was also worth to mention about. Third ranked Levski Sofia (6-2) played at the court of 5th ranked Tundja Yambol (4-4). Levski Sofia did not have too big problems and got a relatively easy victory 86-68. Chavdar Kostov orchestrated the victory by scoring 23 points. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Levski Sofia have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Rilski Sportist. Tundja Yambol at the other side keeps the fifth position with four games lost. Levski Sofia's next round opponent will be Chernomorets (#8) in Burgas where they are favorite. Tundja Yambol will play on the road against Euroins Cherno More in Varna and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Eighth ranked Beroe (3-4) crushed at home 9th ranked Spartak Pleven (2-6) by 22 points 86-64, which is the biggest margin this round on Saturday night. Worth to mention a quality performance of Sergey Tsvetkov who helped to win the game recording 17 points. Beroe's coach Georgi Mladenov felt very confident that he used entire bench saving starting five for next games. Beroe moved-up to seventh place. Loser Spartak Pleven keeps the ninth position with six games lost. Beroe will face league's second-placed Rilski Sportist in Samokov in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Spartak Pleven will play at home against Balkan (#4) in Botevgrad.



Chernomorets - Rilski Sportist 93-101

The game in Burgas was also quite interesting. Second ranked Rilski Sportist (6-2) played at the court of 8th ranked Chernomorets (3-5). Rilski Sportist managed to secure a 8-point victory 101-93 on Sunday. The guests trailed by 1 point after three quarters before their 37-28 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Strangely Chernomorets outrebounded Rilski Sportist 48-34 including 16 on the offensive glass. The best player for the winners was Serbian guard Branko Mirkovic (190-82, agency: Global Sports Plaza) who scored 25 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists. International Hristo Zahariev (197-90) chipped in 22 points and 6 rebounds. American center James Tyler (218-88) produced a double-double by scoring 26 points and 16 rebounds and Bogdan Boev (196-82) added 20 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists respectively for the hosts. Five Rilski Sportist and four Chernomorets players scored in double figures. Rilski Sportist have an impressive six-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 6-2 record behind leader Lukoil Academik, which they share with Levski Sofia. Chernomorets lost third consecutive game. They keep the eighth place with five games lost. Rilski Sportist will meet at home Beroe (#7) in the next round where they are favorite. Chernomorets will play against Levski Sofia and hope to secure a win.

Tundja Yambol - Levski Sofia 68-86

The game in Yambol was also worth to mention about. Third ranked Levski Sofia (6-2) played at the court of 5th ranked Tundja Yambol (4-4). Levski Sofia did not have too big problems and got a relatively easy victory 86-68. It looked good early as Tundja Yambol took an 5-point lead at the end of first quarter. But then Levski Sofia had a 25-17 second period charge getting the lead and Tundja Yambol was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 68-86. Levski Sofia made 18-of-22 charity shots (81.8 percent) during the game. They shot the lights out from three nailing 12 long-distance shots on high 52.2 percentage. International Chavdar Kostov (195-88, agency: Interperformances) orchestrated the victory by scoring 23 points. Serbian point guard Marko Marinovic (183-83) contributed with 11 points, 7 rebounds and 9 assists for the winners. Five Levski Sofia players scored in double figures.
