Fifth-ranked Balkan (9-9) was very close to win a game against first ranked Lukoil Acad. (15-3) in Sofia on Saturday. Lukoil Acad. managed to secure only three-point victory 62-59. However their fans expected much easier game. Ukrainian power forward Maxym Korniyenko (205-87, agency: BeoBasket) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 15 rebounds. The former international guard Bozhidar Avramov (196-90, agency: Interperformances) contributed with 14 points for the winners. Montenegrin guard Amin Hott (192-92) replied with 15 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists for Balkan. Balkan's coach Nebojsa Vidic rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Defending champion maintains first position with 15-3 record. Balkan lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the fifth place with nine games lost. They share the position with Spartak Pleven. Lukoil Acad. are looking forward to face Cherno More (#7) in Varna in the next round where they are favorite.

Seventh-ranked Cherno More (5-13) was very close to win a game against fourth ranked Rilski (11-7) in Samokov. Rilski managed to secure only three-point victory 97-94. However their fans expected easier game. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Evan Bruinsma (202-92, college: Detroit Mercy, agency: Inception Sports) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 30 points and 16 rebounds and Yordan Bozov who added 23 points and 4 assists during the contest. Guard Stanislav Tsonkov (192-91) responded with 40 points (!!!) and 4 assists (on 13-of-16 shooting from the field). Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Rilski have an impressive five-game winning streak. They maintain fourth position with 11-7 record. Cherno More lost third consecutive game. They keep the seventh place with 13 games lost. Rilski will play against bottom-ranked Levski (#9) in Sofia in the next round where they are favorite.

The game between 9th ranked Levski (4-14) and third ranked Beroe (12-6) in Sofia on Saturday ended with biggest points difference. Guests from Stara Zagora beat Levski 91-74. The winners were led by Omari Gudul who scored that evening 21 points and 7 rebounds. Beroe's coach Ljubomir Minchev used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games.
