Steve Zack
NBL top team - Lukoil Acad. (11-2) added another victory to their record on Saturday. This time they beat eighth ranked Yambol (3-9) 78-70. The guests trailed by 10 points after first quarter, but they rallied back and won the game by 8 points. American center Steve Zack (211-92, college: La Salle) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 16 rebounds. American-Cameroonian point guard Danny Gibson (177-84, college: S.Indiana) contributed with 19 points and 4 assists for the winners. Lukoil Acad.'s coach Toni Dechev used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Forward Stoyan Petkov (198-85) replied with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 17 rebounds for Yambol. Lukoil Acad. have a solid four-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 11-2 record. Yambol lost seventh consecutive game. They keep the eighth place with nine games lost. Lukoil Acad. are looking forward to face Spartak Pleven (#5) at home in the next round. Yambol will play against Academik Plovdiv and is hoping to prove to their fans that they can break losing series.
The game in Varna was also worth to mention about. Fourth ranked Balkan (7-5) played at the court of 7th ranked Cherno More (4-9).
