The most interesting game was a derby match between two local teams from Tbilisi: MIA (#3) and TSU (#7). TSU was smashed at home by 26 points 76-102 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. The game without a history. MIA led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They shot 66.7 percent from the field. MIA outrebounded TSU 44-22 including a 34-13 advantage in defensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 27 assists. 27 personal fouls committed by TSU helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American point guard Deonta Vaughn (185-86, college: Cincinnati) orchestrated the victory by scoring 23 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists. The other American import center Kirk Archibeque (205-84, college: Fort Lewis) contributed with 15 points and 11 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners. Guard George Khaniashvili (194-89) replied with 24 points for TSU. 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 keep a position of league leader, which they share with Rustavi. TSU at the other side keeps the seventh place with eight games lost. MIA is looking forward to face league's second-placed Energy Invest in Rustavi in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. TSU's supporters also look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tbilisi Olimpi.
Bottom-ranked STU is still unable to win any game. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their 13th consecutive match to sixth ranked Kutaisi (8-5) 96-41. International center Richard Matiashvili (207-89) had a double-double by scoring 19 points and 13 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Giorgi Barbakadze chipped in 19 points during the contest. Forward Zurab Machaladze (198-92) responded with 4 points and 7 rebounds. 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. Kutaisi moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Dinamo Tbilisi. STU at the other side still closes the standings with 13 games lost. Kutaisi will play against Dinamo Tbilisi (#6) on the road in the next round. STU's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tbilisi Armia.
The game in Batumi supposed to be also quite interesting. Fourth ranked Olimpi (10-2) played at the court of 8th ranked Batumi (3-10). Olimpi smashed Batumi 105-66 on Friday. Akaki Dvalishvili notched a double-double by scoring 20 points and 16 rebounds to lead the effort. Olimpi's coach George Kazanjian felt very confident that he used 11 players and allowed the starting five to rest. Even 20 points and 7 rebounds by Lasha Keshelava did not help to save the game for Batumi. Olimpi moved-up to third place, which they share with Armia. Batumi lost fifth consecutive game. They dropped to the ninth position with ten games lost. Olimpi's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena TSU.
Another interesting game was again a derby between two teams from Tbilisi: Armia (#4) and Samedicino-Academia (#10). Samedicino-Academia was smashed at home by 40 points 65-105 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. The best player for the winners was Lasha Parghalava who scored 12 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to get some rest. Armia (10-2) have an impressive five-game winning streak. Defending champion (10-2) moved-up to third place, which they share with Olimpi. Samedicino-Academia lost fifth consecutive game. They keep the tenth position with 12 games lost. Armia's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena STU.
