Salon Vilpas maintains second place with 18-6 record having just one point less than leader Helsinki Seagulls. Joensuun Kataja at the other side dropped to the fourth position with eight games lost. Salon Vilpas will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.

Sefton Barrett accounted for 18 points and 6 rebounds. American guard Steven Pledger (193-90, college: Oklahoma) came up with 19 points for Kouvot in the defeat. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. BC Nokia maintains seventh place with 10-15 record. Defending champion Kouvot keeps the sixth position with 13 games lost. BC Nokia will play against Tampereen Pyrinto (#9) on the road in the next round. Kouvot will play against Kauhajoen Karhu and hopes to get back on the winning track.

At the other side the best for losing team was Gary Johnson who recorded 15 points (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field).

KTP Basket - Pyrinto 92-72

We cannot really consider it an upset in the game between close teams in Kotka where 8th ranked Tampereen Pyrinto (9-16) was crushed by ninth ranked KTP-Basket (9-16) 92-72 on Wednesday. The game without a history. KTP-Basket led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. The best player for the winners was American Monyea Pratt (196-85, college: Stillman, agency: Court Side) who scored 29 points and 9 assists. His fellow American import guard Daniel Bailey (196-90, college: Queens, NC) chipped in 20 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Four KTP-Basket players scored in double figures.

KTP-Basket moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Pyrinto. KTP-Basket will meet higher ranked Lapuan Korikobrat (#5) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Tampereen Pyrinto will play against BC Nokia and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
