What a coincidence that all visitors won their games.

The most exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Tbilisi: Olimpi (#2) and Sokhumi (#4). Sokhumi was crushed at home by 19 points 65-84 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. The game was mostly controlled by Olimpi. Sokhumi managed to win fourth quarter 20-13. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Olimpi dominated down low during the game scoring 60 of its points in the paint compared to Sokhumi's 28. They outrebounded Sokhumi 53-27 including a 37-20 advantage in defensive rebounds. Olimpi looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists comparing to just 11 passes made by Sokhumi's players. It was a good game for Montenegrin power forward Ivan Todorovic (214-84, agency: Interperformances) who led his team to a victory with 28 points and 9 rebounds. Czech center Ivo Hoger (225-82, agency: Global Sports Plaza) contributed with 15 points and 17 rebounds for the winners. International guard Levan Patsatsia (198-88, college: Troy) answered with 24 points and 5 steals for Sokhumi. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Olimpi have a solid series of three victories in a row. Newly promoted Olimpi maintains second place with 11-2 record having just two points less than leader Armia. Sokhumi at the other side keeps the fourth position with six games lost. They share it with MIA Academy. Olimpi are looking forward to face Kutaisi (#3) on the road in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Sokhumi will play against Batumi and is hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
Another exciting game was again a derby between two teams from Tbilisi: Armia (#1) and MIA (#5). MIA was crushed at home by 25 points 65-90 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. American players dominated the game. It was a great evening for Will Thomas (203-86) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 11 rebounds. Ben Woodside helped adding 18 points and 5 assists. The best for the losing side was forward Tracy Smith (203, college: N.Carolina St., agency: Strategic Sports) with a double-double by scoring 16 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Undefeated Armia (13-0) have an impressive series of thirteen victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with a perfect record of 13 victories in a row. MIA at the other side dropped to the fourth position with six games lost. They share it with Sokhumi. Armia's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena TSU.
The game in Tbilisi supposed to be also quite interesting. Third ranked Kutaisi (10-4) played at the court of 7th ranked TSU (5-8). Kutaisi smashed TSU 111-87 on Saturday. It was an exceptional evening for Davit Barbakadze who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 15 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists. Vasili Beruashvili came up with 18 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists for TSU in the defeat. 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. Kutaisi maintains third place with 10-4 record having just two points less than leader Armia. Loser TSU keeps the seventh position with eight games lost. Kutaisi will meet at home league's second-placed Olimpi in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. TSU's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tbilisi Armia.
Another exciting game was again a derby match of two teams from Tbilisi: Dinamo Tbilisi (#6) and Samedicino-Academia (#9). Samedicino-Academia was defeated at home 75-89 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. The best player for the winners was Beka Tsivtsivadze who had a double-double by scoring 23 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists. Samedicino-Academia's coach rotated ten players and allowed the starting five to get some rest. Dinamo Tbilisi maintains sixth place with 7-7 record. Samedicino-Academia at the other side dropped to the eighth position with nine games lost. Dinamo Tbilisi's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena MIA.

In the last game of round 15 Batumi beat STU Tbilisi on the road 66-62.
