Coincidentally all hosts won their games.

Bottom-ranked Lapuan Korikobrat managed to get a third victory, breaking the six-game losing streak on Wednesday night. This time newly promoted Lapuan Korikobrat won against eighth-ranked Salon Vilpas 88-81. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Salon Vilpas. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 26-20. But Salon Vilpas won second period 14-13. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The best player for the winners was the former international Samuel Haanpaa (203-86) who scored 35 points (!!!) and 5 rebounds. American forward Trey Hampton (203-87, college: Georgia St., agency: TSS Management) chipped in 20 points and 5 rebounds. Lapuan Korikobrat's coach Nenad Stefanovic used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American forward Shawn Atupem (200-89, college: Mt.St.Mary's) produced 28 points and 5 rebounds (on 14-of-16 shooting from the field) for the guests. Lapuan Korikobrat (3-10) moved-up to tenth place, which they share with FoKoPo. Salon Vilpas at the other side keeps the eighth position with eight games lost. Lapuan Korikobrat is looking forward to face Forssan Koripojat (#10) on the road in the next round. Salon Vilpas will play against KTP-Basket in Kotka and is hoping to win this game.
Leader Tampereen Pyrinto delivered the eleventh victory. This time they crushed 9th ranked Namika Lahti (4-10) 92-66. American Lamonte Ulmer (198-86, college: Rhode Island) orchestrated the victory by scoring 23 points and 9 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). Carl Lindbom contributed with 22 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. American forward Jordan Hasquet (206-85, college: Montana, agency: Dynamics Global Management) replied with 22 points for Namika Lahti. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Tampereen Pyrinto maintains first position with 11-2 record. Namika Lahti at the other side keeps the ninth place with ten games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Loimaa. Local Loimaan Korikonkarit (10-3) outscored 5th ranked Kauhajoen Karhu (8-5) 101-65 on Thursday night. The game was dominated by American players. Martin Zeno had a double-double by scoring 19 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists to lead the charge for the winners. Giordan Watson responded with 13 points and 5 assists. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Defending champion maintains second position with 10-3 record behind leader Pyrinto. Loser Kauhajoen Karhu keeps the fifth place with five games lost. They share the position with LrNMKY. Loimaan Korikonkarit will meet Kouvot (#7) in the next round where they are favorite. Kauhajoen Karhu will play against Joensuun Kataja and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Rest of the games of round 14 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Korihait was crushed by LrNMKY in Lappeenranta 90-59. LrNMKY beat FoKoPo at home 93-87. Kouvot lost to Namika Lahti on the opponent's court 68-78.

There was no surprise in Lappeenranta where 11th ranked UU-Korihait (3-11) was crushed by sixth ranked LrNMKY (8-5) 90-59 on Friday. The game was mostly controlled by LrNMKY.

LrNMKY - FoKoPo 93-87

No shocking result in a game in Lappeenranta where sixth ranked LrNMKY (8-5) defeated 10th ranked Forssan Koripojat (3-10) 93-87 on Wednesday.
