Superleague round 11 caused change at the leadership position. Second defeat of league's leader Olimpi (8-2) against third ranked Armia (8-2) 93-62 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Olimpi. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The game without a history. Armia led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They made 18-of-23 free shots (78.3 percent) during the game. Armia outrebounded Olimpi 57-37 including 42 on the defensive glass. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Armia made 7 blocks. American forward Lamayn Wilson (204-80, college: Troy) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 26 points and 15 rebounds. His fellow American import guard Curtis Millage (185-81, college: Arizona St.) contributed with 24 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners. Levan Fatsatsia answered with 9 points and 7 rebounds for Olimpi. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Armia have a solid series of three victories in a row. Defending champion keeps a position of league leader, which they share with 3 other teams including defeated Olimpi.
Bottom-ranked STU is still unable to win any game. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their tenth consecutive match to sixth ranked Dinamo Tbilisi (6-4) 78-71. It was a great evening for American forward Flynn Clayman (206-88, college: Cumberlands) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 21 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists. Lamar Karim helped adding 25 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 steals. Forward Zurab Korkotadze (194-83) responded with 16 points and 5 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Dinamo Tbilisi moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Kutaisi. STU at the other side still closes the standings with ten games lost.
The game in Batumi supposed to be also quite interesting. Fourth ranked Energy Invest (8-2) played at the court of 8th ranked Batumi (3-7). Energy Invest smashed Batumi 107-75 on Sunday. It was an exceptional evening for Nate Bowie who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 25 points, 13 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals. Energy Invest's coach Mikheil Beruashvili felt very confident that he used entire bench and allowed the starting five to rest.
