Semple
The Regular Season in NBL is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 5 rounds. Coincidentally all visitors won their games.

Seventh-ranked Cherno More (5-15) made lots of trouble for third ranked Academik Plovdiv (13-6) in Varna on Saturday. The visitors from Plovdiv managed to secure only three-point victory 80-77. However their fans expected much easier game. French-American forward Jordan Semple (201-92, college: Chico St., agency: Octagon Europe) fired 21 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) for the winners. American point guard Oscar Bellfield (187-90, college: UNLV) chipped in 14 points and 5 assists. Serbian power forward Nikola Djuric (201-91) produced 19 points and 9 rebounds for lost side. Academik Plovdiv moved-up to second place. Cherno More lost fifth consecutive game. They dropped to the eighth position with 15 games lost. Academik Plovdiv are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Levski (#9) in Sofia in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Cherno More will play on the road against Balkan in Botevgrad and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a home loss of second ranked Beroe (13-7) against fifth ranked Spartak Pleven (10-9) on Saturday night. Host Beroe was defeated by Spartak Pleven in a tough game in Stara Zagora 84-89. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Beroe. Worth to mention a great performance of Montenegrin-Serbian center Milovan Savic (205-87) who helped to win the game recording 27 points and 8 rebounds. Martin Marinov contributed with 18 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. American guard Brandis Raley-Ross (191-87, college: S.Carolina) replied with 22 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists for Beroe. Beroe's coach Ljubomir Minchev rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Spartak Pleven maintains fifth position with 10-9 record. Beroe at the other side dropped to the third place with seven games lost. Spartak Pleven will play against higher ranked Rilski (#4) in Samokov in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Beroe will have a break next round.
An interesting game was played in Samokov where Yambol (#8) won against host Rilski (#4) 90-76 on Saturday evening. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Rilski. Nikolay Varbanov had a double-double by scoring 27 points and 11 rebounds (on 13-of-14 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners. At the losing side DJ Shelton responded with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 11 rebounds. Rilski's coach Ludmil Hadjisotirov tested ten players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Yambol (5-14) moved-up to seventh place. Loser Rilski keeps the fourth position with eight games lost. Yambol will meet at home league's leader Lukoil Acad. in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Rilski will play against Spartak Pleven and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Leader Lukoil Acad. delivered the seventeenth victory. This time they crushed 9th ranked Levski (4-16) 91-70 in Sofia. Danny Gibson notched 20 points and 9 assists to lead the effort. Lukoil Acad.'s coach Toni Dechev felt very confident that he used 11 players and allowed the starting five to rest. Lukoil Acad. have a solid four-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 17-3 record. Levski lost third consecutive game. They stay at the bottom place with 16 games lost. Lukoil Acad.'s next round opponent will be Yambol (#7) on the road where they are favorite. Levski will play against the league's second-placed Academik Plovdiv and hope to win that game.

Levski - Lukoil Acad. 70-91

Leader Lukoil Acad. delivered the seventeenth victory. This time they crushed 9th ranked Levski (4-16) 91-70 in Sofia. Lukoil Acad. dominated down low during the game scoring 64 of its points in the paint compared to Levski's 28. They outrebounded Levski 37-20 including a 33-17 advantage in defensive rebounds. Lukoil Acad. players were unselfish on offense dishing 26 assists comparing to just 13 passes made by Levski's players. American-Cameroonian point guard Danny Gibson (177-84, college: S.Indiana) notched 20 points and 9 assists to lead the effort and American center Steve Zack (211-92, college: La Salle) supported him with 13 points and 11 rebounds. Lukoil Acad.'s coach Toni Dechev felt very confident that he used 11 players and allowed the starting five to rest. Even 22 points by the former international swingman Pavel Ivanov (200-88, agency: Interperformances) did not help to save the game for Levski. The former international forward Veselin Veselinov (202-83, college: W.Virginia St.) added 12 points and 8 rebounds for lost side. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Lukoil Acad. have a solid four-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 17-3 record. Levski lost third consecutive game. They stay at the bottom place with 16 games lost. Lukoil Acad.'s next round opponent will be Yambol (#7) on the road where they are favorite. Levski will play against the league's second-placed Academik Plovdiv and hope to win that game.
