The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute susprises and upsets.

The most interesting game was a derby match between two local teams from Tbilisi: Samedicino-Academia (#7) and TSU (#8). TSU was defeated at home 74-83 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. TSU was tied after three quarters but could not keep up in the last quarter eventually losing the game. Samedicino-Academia forced 20 TSU turnovers. It was a good game for guard Mikheil Chochua (193-87) who led his team to a victory with 19 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists. Power forward Akaki Dvalishvili (206-90) contributed with 13 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. Center Tornike Niniashvili (205-82) replied with 22 points and 9 rebounds for TSU. Samedicino-Academia maintains seventh position with 7-10 record. TSU lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the eighth place with 11 games lost. They share the position with STU Tbilisi. Samedicino-Academia are looking forward to face higher ranked Kutaisi (#3) at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. TSU's supporters also look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena STU.
An interesting game for Kutaisi (13-4) which hosted in Kutaisi one of their biggest challengers Sokhumi (10-7). Third ranked Kutaisi managed to get a 12-point victory 86-74. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Sokhumi. Center Richard Matiashvili (209-89) had a double-double by scoring 23 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 blocks to lead the charge for the winners and Giorgi Barbakadze chipped in 17 points and 6 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was center Sergo Atuashvili (223-85, agency: Kotnik Sports Agency) with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 16 rebounds. Sokhumi's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Kutaisi have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain third position with 13-4 record having just two points less than leader Armia. Sokhumi at the other side keeps the fourth place with seven games lost. Kutaisi will play against Samedicino-Academia (#7) in Tbilisi in the next round. Sokhumi's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tbilisi MIA.
Superleague top team - Armia (16-0) had no problems winning another game on Saturday. This time they crushed ninth ranked STU (5-11) in Tbilisi 95-50. Will Thomas notched 28 points and 8 rebounds to lead the effort. Even 17 points by Zviad Antadze did not help to save the game for STU. 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 have an impressive 16-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 16-0 record. STU lost sixth consecutive game. Newly promoted team dropped to the eighth place with 11 games lost. They share the position with TSU Tbilisi. Armia will meet bottom-ranked Energy Invest (#11) in the next round and are hoping to win another game.

Dinamo Tbilisi - Batumi 82-76

Very expected game when 10th ranked Batumi (2-14) lost on the road to sixth ranked Dinamo Tbilisi (9-8) 82-76 on Saturday. However just six-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half.

Even a double-double of 22 points and 13 rebounds by the former international forward Lasha Keshelava (200-81) did not help to save the game for Batumi. point guard Irakli Mikeladze (179-94) added 17 points and 5 rebounds. Dinamo Tbilisi maintains sixth position with 9-8 record. Loser Batumi keeps the tenth place with 14 games lost. Dinamo Tbilisi will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Batumi will play against the league's second-placed Olimpi (#2) in Tbilisi and hope to secure a win.
