The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Tampereen Pyrinto (9-2) on the court of tenth ranked Forssan Koripojat on Thursday night. Visitors were defeated by Forssan Koripojat 85-78. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Tampereen Pyrinto. Tampereen Pyrinto trailed by 15 points after 3 quarters before a 24-16 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 78-85 at the end of the game. Forssan Koripojat made 23-of-27 free shots (85.2 percent) during the game. It was a good game for guard Sami Ikavalko (188-89) who led his team to a victory with 19 points and 5 rebounds. American-Belizean point guard Charles Burgess (186-84, college: Texas Tech) contributed with 9 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. American forward Damon Williams (201-73, college: Colorado St.-Pueblo, agency: Two Points) replied with a double-double by scoring 18 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists for Tampereen Pyrinto. Tampereen Pyrinto's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Forssan Koripojat (3-8) moved-up to ninth place, which they share with Namika Lahti. Tampereen Pyrinto at the other side still keeps top position with two games lost. They share it with Nilan Bisons. Forssan Koripojat is looking forward to face bottom-ranked UU-Korihait (#12) in Uusikaupunki in the next round. Tampereen Pyrinto will play at home against Lapuan Korikobrat (#11) and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Kauhajoki. Fifth ranked KTP-Basket (7-4) saved a 3-point victory on the road edging one of their biggest challengers Kauhajoen Karhu (7-4) 80-77 in the game for the fourth place. American players dominated the game. Worth to mention a great performance of forward Devonne Giles (203-83, college: Texas Tech) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 21 points and 14 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) and Antwine Williams who added 15 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was point guard Giordan Watson (178-85, college: Cent.Michigan, agency: Pro One Sports) with 21 points. KTP-Basket moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Kauhajoki. KTP-Basket will play against Kouvot (#7) in Kouvola in the next round. Kauhajoen Karhu will play at home against Namika Lahti and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game between third ranked Joensuun Kataja (8-3) and 9th ranked Namika Lahti (3-8) in Joensuu on Sunday ended with biggest points difference. Joensuun Kataja outscored guests from Lahti 98-43. American players dominated also this game. The winners were led by Jonte Flowers who scored that evening 26 points and 8 rebounds. Even 15 points and 6 rebounds by Jordan Hasquet did not help to save the game for Namika Lahti. Namika Lahti's coach Ilkka Palviainen gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. Joensuun Kataja have an impressive six-game winning streak. Joensuun Kataja maintains third position with 8-3 record behind leader Pyrinto. Namika Lahti lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the ninth place with eight games lost. They share the position with FoKoPo. Joensuun Kataja will meet at home league's second-placed Loimaan Korikonkarit in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week.

Salon Vilpas - FoKoPo 99-74

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both ninth ranked Salon Vilpas and 10th ranked Forssan Koripojat had identical 3-7 record.

Nilan Bisons - Korihait 90-55

Very expected game when 12th ranked UU-Korihait (2-10) was smashed on the road by second ranked Loimaan Korikonkarit (9-2) 90-55 on Friday. The game without a history.

Four Loimaan Korikonkarit players scored in double figures. Loimaan Korikonkarit's coach Greg Gibson felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even 10 points and 9 rebounds by American forward Ramon Dyer (201-84, college: Houston) did not help to save the game for UU-Korihait. Mikael Herbert (205-93) added 12 points. Loimaan Korikonkarit have an impressive eight-game winning streak. Defending champion used an opportunity after Pyrinto lost their game and moved up joining them at the top position.
