Mikheil
Berishvili
The most interesting game was a derby match between two local teams from Tbilisi: Olimpi (#4) and Sokhumi (#8). Sokhumi was defeated at home 69-82 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Sokhumi. Olimpi looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international forward Mikheil Berishvili (205-87) who helped to win the game recording 13 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists and Levan Fatsatsia who added 13 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals during the contest. Olimpi's coach George Kazanjian used an eleven-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The best for the losing side was forward Irakli Chlaidze (199-89) with 20 points. Olimpi (9-2) keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Rustavi and MIA Academy. Sokhumi at the other side keeps the eighth place with eight games lost. They share the position with Batumi. Olimpi will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Sokhumi's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tbilisi MIA.
Another interesting game was again a derby between two teams from Tbilisi: Dinamo Tbilisi (#6) and TSU (#7). TSU was defeated at home 60-68 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. The winners were led by American forward Flynn Clayman (206-88, college: Cumberlands) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 16 points and 15 rebounds and Beqa Chikviladze supported him with 18 points. Dinamo Tbilisi's coach Irakli Khoshtaria allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Even a double-double of 14 points and 17 rebounds by Serzhi Aselaini did not help to save the game for TSU. Dinamo Tbilisi have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Kutaisi. TSU at the other side keeps the seventh position with seven games lost. Dinamo Tbilisi will play against Batumi (#8) at home in the next round. TSU's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena STU.
Superleague top team - MIA (9-2) had no problems winning another game on Monday. This time they crushed eighth ranked Batumi (3-8) 89-56. The best player for the winners was Kirk Archibeque who had a double-double by scoring 24 points and 16 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was Giorgi Nanitashvili who recorded 20 points. Batumi's coach Mikhail Kobeshavidze gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. MIA maintains first position with 9-2 record, which they share with Rustavi and Olimpi. Batumi lost third consecutive game. They keep the eighth place with eight games lost. They share the position with Sokhumi. MIA's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena Sokhumi.
Fourth ranked Energy Invest blasted bottom-ranked STU (0-11) in Rustavi 112-70. STU is still unable to win any game. It was a good game for Kyle Nelson who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 11 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. Energy Invest (9-2) keeps a position of league leader, which they share with MIA Academy and Olimpi. STU at the other side still closes the standings with 11 games lost. Energy Invest's next round opponent will be Samedicino-Academia (#10) in Tbilisi and are hoping to win another game. STU's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tbilisi TSU.

In the last game of round 12 Kutaisi destroyed Samedicino on the opponent's court 91-70.
