After 4 rounds played we can already see who rules in the Ligaen and who belongs to weaker ones.

Ligaen top team - Bakken (4-0) had no problems winning another game on Friday. This time they beat eighth ranked Randers (0-3) in Aarhus 95-77. The game without a history. Bakken led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They also forced 20 Randers turnovers. It was a great shooting night for Bakken especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 52.6 percentage. Worth to mention a quality performance of Jamaican forward Orane Chin (200-88, college: CS Fullerton) who helped to win the game recording 23 points and 9 rebounds (on 10-of-12 shooting from the field) and the former international power forward Nicolai Iversen (205-80, college: San Jose City JC) who added 15 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals during the contest. At the losing side forward Damian Ocana (198-86) responded with a double-double by scoring 24 points and 13 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Bakken have a solid four-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 4-0 record, which they share with Svendborg. Newly promoted Randers still closes the standings with three games lost. They share the position with Aalborg. Bakken will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Randers will play on the road against SISU (#3) in Copenhagen and hope to get finally their first victory.
Bottom-ranked Vaerlose (0-2) is still winless. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their second consecutive match to sixth ranked Horsens IC (2-2) 79-65. The winners were led by American center Keane Thomann (211-89, college: Missouri So.) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 22 points and 10 rebounds and Darko Jukic supported him with 16 points and 6 rebounds. Even 21 points and 4 assists by American guard Richard Delk (193-86, college: Troy) did not help to save the game for Vaerlose. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Horsens IC maintains sixth position with 2-2 record. Vaerlose at the other side still closes the standings with two games lost. Horsens IC will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Vaerlose will play at home against the league's second-placed Svendborg (#2) and looks forward to get finally their first victory.
Bottom-ranked Aalborg (0-3) is still winless. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. This time they lost on the road their third consecutive match to top-ranked Svendborg (4-0) 102-81 on Saturday evening. Donald Rutherford fired 25 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Svendborg's coach Craig Pedersen felt very confident that he used entire bench saving starting five for next games. Ryan Willen produced 27 points and 9 rebounds for lost side. Svendborg have a solid four-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Bakken. Loser Aalborg still closes the standings with three games lost. They share the position with Randers. Svendborg will meet Vaerlose (#7) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. Aalborg will play against Horsholm and looks forward to get finally their first victory.
Bottom-ranked Horsholm (0-4) is still winless. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their fourth consecutive match to third ranked SISU (3-1) 103-96. Worth to mention a great performance of Mikael Nielsen who helped to win the game recording 24 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. SISU's coach Almir Zeco allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. SISU maintains third position with 3-1 record behind leader Bakken. Horsholm at the other side still closes the standings with four games lost. SISU's next round opponent will be Randers (#9) at home where they are favorite. Horsholm will play against Aalborg and looks forward to get finally their first victory.
