Akoon-Purcell
The Regular Season in Ligaen is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 4 rounds. There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader.

Top ranked Horsens IC (20-5) recorded its fifth loss in Aarhus on Sunday night. Visitors were rolled over by second ranked Bakken (19-4) 80-53. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. The game without a history. Bakken led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Horsens IC to just 7 points in fourth quarter. Bakken dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to Horsens IC's 34. They outrebounded Horsens IC 53-31 including a 43-23 advantage in defensive rebounds. The best player for the winners was American-Trinidad and Tobago guard Devaughn Akoon-Purcell (196-93, college: Illinois St.) who scored 21 points and 8 rebounds. American center Keane Thomann (211-89, college: Missouri So.) chipped in 14 points and 12 rebounds. International guard Gabriel Lundberg (193-94) produced 15 points and 6 rebounds for the guests. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Bakken maintains second position with 19-4 record behind leader Horsens IC. Defending champion Horsens IC still keeps top place with five games lost. Bakken are looking forward to face Naestved (#5) on the road in the next round. Horsens IC will play against Randers (#7) and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Randers. Fourth ranked Svendborg (13-12) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 7th ranked Randers (9-16) 85-83 on Saturday evening. American point guard Stefan Bonneau (177-87, college: LIU Post) orchestrated the victory by scoring 18 points and 5 assists. Harding NaNa contributed with 11 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Svendborg's coach Arnar Gudjonsson allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game.
