There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team and derby games.

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of undefeated Olimpi (4-1) in Tbilisi on Saturday night. Hosts were defeated by fourth ranked Kutaisi (5-1) 97-81. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Olimpi. It was a key game for the second position in the league. The guests trailed by 2 points at the halftime before their 56-38 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Kutaisi looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. 24 personal fouls committed by Olimpi helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. International center Richard Matiashvili (207-89) had a double-double by scoring 31 points, 17 rebounds and 6 assists to lead the charge for the winners and guard Buba Kvimsadze (195-82) chipped in 13 points and 7 assists during the contest. The best for the losing side was Montenegrin center Stevan Milosevic (211-85, agency: Interperformances) with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 13 rebounds. Olimpi's coach George Kazanjian rotated ten players seeing no chance for a win. Kutaisi have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Rustavi.

Olimpi's supporters also look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena Dinamo Tbilisi.
Very significant was TSU's (#8) 74-61 road victory against 7th ranked Batumi. Point guard Givi Bakradze (185-91) notched 18 points, 5 rebounds, 9 assists and 5 steals to lead the effort and Serzhi Aselaini supported him with 20 points and 7 rebounds. Even a double-double of 17 points and 10 rebounds by the former international forward Lasha Keshelava (200-81) did not help to save the game for Batumi. TSU (2-4) moved-up to seventh place. Batumi at the other side dropped to the eighth position with five games lost. 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.
