Host teams show no mercy winning all games.

The most exciting game of round 13 in the NBL took place in Plovdiv. This derby game ended with only one-point defeat on the road of 7th ranked Cherno More (4-8) to third ranked Academik Plovdiv (7-4) 90-89 on Sunday evening. French-American forward Jordan Semple (201-92, college: Chico St.) fired a double-double by scoring 18 points and 18 rebounds (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners. American guard Shakir Smith (185-92, college: Adams St.) chipped in 23 points. Guard Stanislav Tsonkov (192-91) produced a double-double by scoring 15 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists for lost side. Cherno More's coach Spas Natov rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Academik Plovdiv maintains third place with 7-4 record having four points less than leader Lukoil Acad. Cherno More at the other side keeps the seventh position with eight games lost. Academik Plovdiv are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Levski (#9) in Sofia in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Cherno More will play at home against Balkan and is hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
Leader Lukoil Acad. delivered the tenth victory. This time they beat 9th ranked Levski (2-10) 84-69 in Sofia. Worth to mention a great performance of power forward Denis Agre (205-88, college: Pepperdine) who helped to win the game recording 12 points and 9 rebounds. Danny Gibson contributed with 10 points and 6 assists for the winners. Lukoil Acad.'s coach Toni Dechev allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Guard Kiril Raykov (192-87) answered with 20 points for Levski. Lukoil Acad. have a solid series of three victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 10-2 record. Levski lost fourth consecutive game. They stay at the bottom position with ten games lost. Lukoil Acad. will play against Yambol (#8) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Levski will play against Academik Plovdiv and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Stara Zagora. Local Beroe (9-3) outscored 5th ranked Spartak Pleven (5-6) 96-65 on Saturday night. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Spartak Pleven. Brandis Raley-Ross stepped up and scored 19 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. At the losing side Aleksandar Gruev responded with 11 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Beroe have a solid series of four victories in a row. They maintain second place with 9-3 record behind leader Lukoil Acad. Loser Spartak Pleven dropped to the sixth position with six games lost. Beroe will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Spartak Pleven will play against Rilski (#5) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last game of round 13 Yambol was defeated by Rilski in Samokov 102-90.
