Damon Smith
The most exciting game of round 22 in the Ligaen took place in Copenhagen. This derby game ended with only three-point defeat on the road of 5th ranked Naestved (10-9) to fourth ranked SISU (11-8) 79-76 in the game for the fourth place. Naestved was trailing by 5 points at halftime but managed to get 1-point lead after three quarters before a 15-11 charge of SISU, which allowed them to win the game. They also forced 22 Naestved turnovers. Strangely Naestved outrebounded SISU 37-25 including 24 on the defensive glass. 25 personal fouls committed by Naestved helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Damon Smith (200-88, college: Mary) who helped to win the game recording 18 points and 7 rebounds. The former international point guard Mikael Nielsen (178-90) contributed with 15 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. American guard Caleb Walker (193-89, college: Nebraska) replied with 20 points for Naestved. Naestved's coach Geoff Kotila tried various players' combinations and tested in total twelve players in this game, but that didn't help. SISU maintains fourth position with 11-8 record. Naestved at the other side keeps the fifth place with nine games lost. SISU are looking forward to face Horsholm (#7) on the road in the next round. Naestved will play against the league's second-placed Bakken in Aarhus and is hoping to prove to their fans that this time they can win.
Ligaen top team - Svendborg (17-2) added another victory to their record. This time they beat seventh ranked Horsholm (5-12) 85-77. The former international guard Adama Darboe (190-86) scored 30 points, 5 assists and 4 steals (perfect from downtown making all six shots !!!) to lead the charge for the winners and Gregory Washington chipped in 21 points and 11 rebounds during the contest. At the losing side forward Alexander Bak (193-91) responded with 13 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 blocks. Svendborg maintains first position with 17-2 record. Horsholm at the other side keeps the seventh place with 12 games lost. Svendborg will play against Randers (#6) at home in the next round where they are favorite. Horsholm will play against SISU in Copenhagen and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Vaerlose supposed to be also quite interesting. Third ranked Horsens IC (15-4) played at the court of 8th ranked Vaerlose (5-14). Horsens IC did not have too big problems and got a relatively easy victory 95-75 on Wednesday. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Vaerlose. Skyler Bowlin notched 27 points and 8 assists to lead the effort. Even 19 points and 4 assists by Richard Delk did not help to save the game for Vaerlose. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Horsens IC have an impressive six-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Bakken. Loser Vaerlose keeps the eighth position with 14 games lost. They share it with Aarhus BC. Horsens IC will meet Aarhus BC (#9) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Vaerlose will play against Aalborg and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Another interesting game was a derby match between two teams from Aarhus: Bakken (#2) and Aarhus BC (#9). Bakken (15-4) won against visiting Aarhus BC (5-14) 74-65. Nicolai Iversen fired a double-double by scoring 23 points and 14 rebounds for the winners. Bakken's coach Philip Dejworek allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Defending champion maintains second position with 15-4 record having just two points less than leader Svendborg, which they share with Horsens IC. Aarhus BC lost seventh consecutive game. They dropped to the eighth place with 14 games lost. Bakken's next round opponent will be Naestved (#5) on the road. Aarhus BC will play against Horsens IC in Horsens.

In the last game of round 22 bottom-ranked Aalborg was beaten by Randers on the road 100-85.
The most impressive performance of 22th round was 24 points, 15 rebounds and 4 assists by Bonell Colas of Randers.

Randers - Aalborg 100-85

No shocking result in a game when sixth ranked Randers (8-10) beat at home bottom-ranked Aalborg (1-15) 100-85. The game was mostly controlled by Randers. Aalborg was better in third quarter 27-25. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Randers players were unselfish on offense dishing 21 assists.
