The game had a very big importance for second-ranked MIA as it allowed them to take a leadership position. MIA defeated 7th ranked TSU in Tbilisi 82-68. The game was mostly controlled by MIA. TSU managed to win second period 17-16. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. MIA forced 24 TSU turnovers. It was a great shooting night for MIA especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 57.1 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists comparing to just 11 passes made by TSU's players. 24 personal fouls committed by TSU helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a great evening for American center Kirk Archibeque (205-84, college: Fort Lewis) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 12 rebounds. His fellow American import power forward Chad Prewitt (206-80, college: Arizona St., agency: Priority Sports) helped adding 15 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. MIA's coach Giorgos Ketselidis used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The best for the losing side was Serzhi Aselaini with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 11 rebounds. MIA have a solid series of three victories in a row. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Rustavi. TSU at the other side keeps the seventh place with two games lost. TSU will play next round against strong Olimpi trying to get back on the winning streak. It will be a derby game for which supporters look forward to, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena of Olimpi. MIA will try to continue on its current victory against second ranked Energy Invest in Rustavi.
The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of undefeated Dinamo Tbilisi (2-1) at the home court. Hosts were defeated by Energy Invest (3-0) 78-64. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Dinamo Tbilisi. It was a key game for the top position in the league as both teams had the same 2-0 record before this meeting. It was an exceptional evening for American guard Nate Bowie (183-86, college: Cent.Arkansas) who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 20 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists. Kyle Nelson accounted for 21 points and 8 rebounds. Energy Invest's coach Mikheil Beruashvili allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. American point guard Lamar Karim (178-83, college: So.Poly State, agency: Interperformances) came up with 17 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists for Dinamo Tbilisi in the defeat. Energy Invest have a solid series of three victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with MIA Academy. Dinamo Tbilisi at the other side dropped to the fifth place with one game lost. They share the position with Kutaisi. Energy Invest will play against league's leader MIA in Tbilisi in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Dinamo Tbilisi will play on the road against Kutaisi (#6) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Another exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Tbilisi: Armia (#6) and Samedicino-Academia (#8). Armia (2-0) crushed visiting Samedicino-Academia (0-3) by 50 points 95-45. The best player for the winners was George Jgerenaia who had a double-double by scoring 10 points and 11 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was Giorgi Revazashvili who recorded 14 points and 8 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Defending champion moved-up to third place, which they share with Olimpi. Loser Samedicino-Academia still closes the standings with three games lost. They share the position with Batumi and STU Tbilisi. Armia's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tbilisi STU.

In the last two games of round 3 winless Batumi lost to undefeated Olimpi on the opponent's court 63-94. Kutaisi managed to outperform STU Tbilisi in a home game 76-63.

Armia - Samedicino 95-45

Another exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Tbilisi: Armia (#6) and Samedicino-Academia (#8). Armia (2-0) crushed visiting Samedicino-Academia (0-3) by 50 points 95-45.
