The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with derby games and even winless team recording their first victory.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Armia as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Armia edged 7th ranked TSU in Tbilisi 73-71. The hosts trailed by 4 points after three quarters before their 8-2 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Armia dominated on the defensive end, holding TSU to just 2 points in fourth quarter. Strangely TSU outrebounded Armia 45-32 including 34 on the defensive glass. 28 personal fouls committed by TSU helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American swingman Jeremy Richardson (200-84, college: Delta St.) orchestrated the victory by scoring 25 points and 5 rebounds (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line). His fellow American import point guard Sundiata Gaines (185-86, college: Georgia, agency: Strategic Sports) contributed with 13 points and 5 assists for the winners. Armia's coach Kote Tugushi used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Forward Soso Shermadini (208-85) answered with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 17 rebounds for TSU. Armia have a solid series of four victories in a row. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. TSU at the other side dropped to the sixth place with two games lost. They share the position with Olympus. TSU will play next round against strong Sokhumi trying to get back on the winning streak. It will be a derby game for which supporters look forward to, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tbilisi - Sokhumi. Armia will try to continue on its current victory against fifth ranked Samedicino-Academia. It will be extra interesting game as Samedicino-Academia is their local rival from Tbilisi.
Dinamo Tbilisi's fans can celebrate the first win of their team after four consecutive loses. They used home court advantage to defeat MIA (2-3) 94-89. American forward Keyon Carter (203-88, college: ODU, agency: Hart Sports Mngm) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 29 points and 15 rebounds for the winners and Giorgi Markhvashvili chipped in 18 points and 4 assists. Power forward Akaki Dvalishvili (206-90) responded with 17 points and 8 rebounds. MIA's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Dinamo Tbilisi maintains ninth place with 1-4 record. It was MIA's third loss in a row. They keep the eighth position with three games lost. Dinamo Tbilisi will play against Energy Invest (#10) in Rustavi in the next round. MIA will play on the road against the league's second-placed Kutaisi and will have a slim chance for a victory.
Bottom-ranked Energy Invest is still unable to win any game. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their fourth consecutive match to eighth ranked Samedicino-Academia (3-2) 100-73 on Friday evening. Beqa Chikviladze nailed 26 points and 5 assists for the winning side. Luka Khmelidze came up with 21 points and 5 rebounds for Energy Invest in the defeat. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Samedicino-Academia have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to fifth place. Loser Energy Invest still closes the standings with four games lost. Samedicino-Academia's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena Armia.
Bottom-ranked Batumi is still unable to win any game. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their fifth consecutive match to third ranked Sokhumi (4-1) 88-64. The best player for the winners was Levan Patsatsia who had a double-double by scoring 40 points (!!!), 16 rebounds and 5 assists. Sokhumi moved-up to second place, which they share with Kutaisi. Batumi at the other side still closes the standings with five games lost. Sokhumi's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena TSU.
The game in Tbilisi was also quite interesting. Third ranked Kutaisi (4-1) played at the court of 6th ranked Olympus (2-2). Kutaisi defeated Olympus 75-64 on Saturday. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Olympus. Levan Tsekvava orchestrated the victory by scoring 19 points and 4 assists. Kutaisi moved-up to second place, which they share with Sokhumi. Newly promoted Olympus keep the sixth position with two games lost. Kutaisi will face MIA (#8) in Tbilisi in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Olympus' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tbilisi STU.



Dinamo Tbilisi - MIA Tbilisi 94-89

Dinamo Tbilisi's fans can celebrate the first win of their team after four consecutive loses. They used home court advantage to defeat MIA (2-3) 94-89. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But MIA won third quarter 20-14. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Dinamo Tbilisi made 24-of-29 charity shots (82.8 percent) during the game. MIA was plagued by 25 personal fouls down the stretch. American forward Keyon Carter (203-88, college: ODU, agency: Hart Sports Mngm) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 29 points and 15 rebounds for the winners and guard Giorgi Markhvashvili (190-83) chipped in 18 points and 4 assists. Power forward Akaki Dvalishvili (206-90) responded with 17 points and 8 rebounds and American guard Robo Kreps (182-88, college: Ill.-Chicago, agency: N.E.T.) scored 17 points and 5 rebounds. Four Dinamo Tbilisi and five MIA players scored in double figures. MIA's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Dinamo Tbilisi maintains ninth place with 1-4 record. It was MIA's third loss in a row. They keep the eighth position with three games lost. Dinamo Tbilisi will play against Energy Invest (#10) in Rustavi in the next round. MIA will play on the road against the league's second-placed Kutaisi and will have a slim chance for a victory.
