There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team, derby games and even winless team recording their first victory.

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of undefeated Energy Invest (3-1) in Tbilisi on Saturday night. Visitors were rolled over by MIA (4-0) 88-44. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Energy Invest. It was a key game for the top position in the league as both teams had the same 3-0 record before this meeting. The game without a history. MIA led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Energy Invest to just 7 points in third quarter. MIA held Energy Invest to an opponent 21.7 percent shooting from the field compared to 54.2 percent accuracy of the winners and made 17-of-21 free shots (81.0 percent) during the game. MIA outrebounded Energy Invest 51-24 including a 38-14 advantage in defensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists comparing to just 9 passes made by Energy Invest's players. American center Kirk Archibeque (205-84, college: Fort Lewis) fired a double-double by scoring 24 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists (on 11-of-13 shooting from the field) for the winners. The other American import point guard Deonta Vaughn (185-86, college: Cincinnati) chipped in 11 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists. Cameroonian forward Talba Toudjani (201-80) produced 6 points and 7 rebounds for lost side. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. MIA have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 4-0 record. Energy Invest at the other side dropped to the fourth place with one game lost. They share the position with Kutaisi. MIA's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena STU.
Another interesting game was a derby match between two teams from Tbilisi: Olimpi (#5) and TSU (#7). Olimpi (3-0) smashed visiting TSU (1-3) by 47 points 98-51. Worth to mention a great performance of international Akaki Dvalishvili (206-90) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 25 points and 10 rebounds. Stevan Milosevic contributed with 24 points and 12 rebounds for the winners. point guard Givi Bakradze (185-91) replied with 10 points for TSU. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Olimpi have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Armia. TSU at the other side keeps the seventh position with three games lost. They share it with Batumi. Olimpi's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena Samedicino-Academia.
