USK Praha coasted to yet another ZBL title. They breezed past Sokol Hradec Kralove to retain the trophy. The game without a history. USK Praha led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They held Sokol Hradec Kralove to an opponent 23.1 percent shooting from the field compared to 50.7 percent accuracy of the winners. They outrebounded Sokol Hradec Kralove 40-24 including a 33-19 advantage in defensive rebounds. It was a great shooting night for USK Praha especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 55.6 percentage. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 27 assists comparing to just 9 passes made by Sokol Hradec Kralove's players. It was an exceptional evening for the former international Katerina Elhotova (180-89) who led the winners and scored 23 points (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). The former international Tereza Vyoralova (175-94) accounted for 13 points and 5 rebounds for the winning side.

The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games.
