There will be only one (last) round of the Second Stage in Division A. Coincidentally all hosts won their games.

Akademik Sofia (8-1) recorded its first loss on the court of third ranked Levski 2014-2 on Monday night. Visitors were rolled over by Levski 2014-2 78-57. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in A. The hosts trailed by 10 points after three quarters before their 19-15 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Levski 2014-2 (6-3) moved-up to second place in A. Akademik Sofia at the other side still keeps top position with one game lost. Levski 2014-2 are looking forward to face Vidabasket (#6) in Vidin in the next round. Akademik Sofia will play on the road against Chavdar (#5) in Troyan and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Dolphin. Ninth ranked Dolphin (5-4) saved a 2-point victory at home edging 8th ranked Shumen (6-3) 77-75 on Sunday evening. Dolphin maintains ninth place in A with 5-4 record. Shumen at the other side keeps the eighth position with three games lost. Dolphin will play against CSKA (#11) in the next round. Shumen will play against Cherno More 2 and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Other games of round 9 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
In A Chavdar was crushed by UE Varna in a road game 99-77. Rilski 2 smashed Vidabasket at home 81-60. Dunav 2016 lost to Cherno More 2 on the opponent's court 74-78.

Levski 2014-2 - Akademik Sofia 78-57

It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in A. The hosts trailed by 10 points after three quarters before their 19-15 charge, which allowed them to win the game.

UE Varna - Chavdar 99-77

There was no surprise when 5th ranked Chavdar (2-7) was crushed on the road by third ranked UE Varna (6-3) 99-77. The game was mostly controlled by UE Varna. Chavdar was better in second period 25-21. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. UE Varna maintains third place in A with 6-3 record having just two points less than leader Cherno More 2. Chavdar at the other side keeps the fifth position with seven games lost. UE Varna will play against Rilski 2 (#4) in Samokov in the next round. Chavdar will play at home against the league's leader Akademik Sofia and hopes to get back on the winning track.
gschID: 534090


Rilski 2 - Vidabasket 81-60

No shocking result in a game in Samokov where fourth ranked Rilski 2 (4-5) smashed 6th ranked Vidabasket (1-8) 81-60. The game was mostly controlled by Rilski 2. Vidabasket was better in second period 20-13. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Rilski 2 maintains fourth place in A with 4-5 record. Vidabasket at the other side keeps the sixth position with eight games lost. Rilski 2 will play against higher ranked UE Varna (#3) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Vidabasket will play against the league's second-placed Levski 2014-2 to get more than just one victory in their record.
gschID: 534089


Places 7-12
Cherno More 2 - Dunav 2016 78-74

Rather expected game in Varna where 10th ranked Dunav 2016 (4-5) was defeated by seventh ranked Cherno More 2 (8-1) 78-74. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 23-16. But Dunav 2016 won second period 16-10. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Newly promoted Cherno More 2 maintains seventh place in A with 8-1 record. Dunav 2016 at the other side keeps the tenth position with five games lost. Cherno More 2 will play against Shumen (#8) on the road in the next round. Dunav 2016 will play against Akademik Varna and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
gschID: 534093


Dolphin - Shumen 77-75

Important game to mention about took place in Dolphin. Ninth ranked Dolphin (5-4) saved a 2-point victory at home edging 8th ranked Shumen (6-3) 77-75 on Sunday evening. Shumen was ahead by 6 points after three quarters before a 21-13 charge of Dolphin, which allowed them to win the game. Dolphin maintains ninth place in A with 5-4 record. Shumen at the other side keeps the eighth position with three games lost. Dolphin will play against CSKA (#11) in the next round. Shumen will play against Cherno More 2 and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
